The Mythical Man-Moth Strikes Again

I’ve stumbled across The Mythical Man-Month yet again. Well, okay, I guess this doesn’t really count since I got the link on Daring Fireball in reference to the previous article (my original Man Moth encounter).

The latest reference comes from Engineering Management Hacks: The BigBook Technique. I really liked this quote:

After failing to win several arguments on this point, the engineers became exasperated and decided to hold an intervention with the CEO. They each bought a copy of Brooks’ book, brought the CEO into a conference room, and stacked up the copies of the book, telling him, It is extremely urgent that you read this book. We’ve bought you many copies so that you might read it faster. They made their point.
