    Read this with a book club at work. It's a great book filled with lots of arcihtecture and best design concepts. It's defiintely a book I'll need to go back and reread a couple times.

    Well, I know this borders on cheating, but I hope you will forgive me. It is 6 p.m. Eastern Time (3 p.m. here, in California) on 12/31/2014. I have read 99 books in 2014 and I pledged to read 100. I hate breaking pledges, so I will briefly review the textbook I have been teaching from all year. I had to read over 50 pages of the textbook today while grading the final exam, so I hope this justifies the inclusion of this review here.

I have read 99 books in 2014 and I pledged to read 100. I hate breaking pledges, so I will briefly review the textbook I have been teaching from all year. I had to read over 50 pages of the textbook today while grading the final exam, so I hope this justifies the inclusion of this review here. I had taught Software Engineering, since mid-1990s, from various textbooks before I found Sommerville, Edition 6. Now I teach from the most current Edition 9, which is a truly mature textbook. It is divided, quite logically, into four main parts: Introduction to Software Engineering, Dependability and Security, Advanced Software Engineering, and Software Management. These parts comprise 26 content-packed chapters that I all manage to cover in the Software Engineering course. Sommerville is by far the best textbook on the subject I have ever read. The best feature of the text is that it is comprehensive, deep enough, and readable, if a bit boring (simply because the subject is quite boring). Of course, I have minor qualms as to the allocation of space for individual topics. I would use more space for the Web-based programming and portable-device programming and less on obsolete concepts such as, say, the spiral model. I would expand space dedicated to agile methods. I am sure this will all come in the next edition. My students programmatically do not like textbooks from which they are learning, yet they tolerate this one, and they do read all 716 pages (and are quizzed on all the material). This is another indication that it is quite a good textbook. To lighten this overly serious review, let me quote a funny bit from Edition 8 of this textbook. Sommerville listed factors that influence programmers' productivity. One of these factors was termed "Outside awareness". The explanation made it clear that "outside awareness" meant "a window". Don't you love euphemisms? Four and a quarter stars.

    Has good research material in it. Using it for my 260 assignment.

    I think this book is more useful for managers than programmers and Code Complete, the other textbook for my software engineering class, is much better for developers (as such, me right now). However, if you're interested in learning about different software engineering methods and styles of work / management / planning / cycles then this is pretty good. It goes into more detail than Code Complete on different styles of collective coding.

    This book is very good for any one in software field. Some times I lost in the examples. But overall, you can depend on it. I studied it in 2003, but I use it again in 2012 and 2013 and I think I will use it again.

    A seminal volume in the software engineering world. If you are serious about improving your credentials as a true software engineer, you simply must read this text.

    I read this book as part of a software methodology course on my computer science education. Where the book truly shines is at its thorough core of process and methodology explanations. For this reason alone I would recommend reading the book, but as a modern approach to learn about the processes the book is unfortunately quite heavy and self repeating. I will most likely use this book as a glossary, in case I forget the name of a concept in the future.

    It is good book that software engineers can take help, in professional or even a beginner can take. But some topics are not in it
