Jeff Atwood on Steve McConnell on Estimating

I reviewed a couple chapters of Steve McConnell’s Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art as he was writing it.  (Now that I sound like I am sooo cool, let me point out that he opened the review process up to hordes of folks via his website, so it’s not like I’m all that cool.)  What I read was solid gold, although I’ve not had time to buy and read the entire book yet.

Jeff Atwood over at Coding Horror has a nice extract and bit of commentary on why estimations are so often horribly wrong.

Just another kick in the pants that I need to get and read a copy of this book.
