Downside | Summary


If there is a downside, it is that I must admit that I have a keen interest in this book, not pecuniary, but because of its content and departure from the norm. The reason is because I reviewed the author's text as it developed and provided extensive comments as it progressed. I also wrote the book's Foreword, from which these remarks are taken. Nevertheless, I hope that my remarks are factual, even if somewhat prejudiced in favor.

Since I now have some page space left to play with, here follows my favorite illustration taken from Chapter 10: Concluding Remarks. Figure 1 shows how the cost of a project can get out of hand by seemingly innocuous delays in design.
