Ingo recommended the book to me during the Connect Event in Barcelona. Because I had read Peopleware, I was game to get another book from Tom DeMarco. Over the weekend, I easily managed to get through The Deadline. Why? Because it is a really great book (even hilarious at times) and the “resulting” Mr. Tompkins journal is a treasure-trove of project management advice.
Definitely worth checking out too is the Tom DeMarco interview done by his publisher, Dorset House Publishing.
