Another of the books everyone in I.T. should read. I practice many of the things in this book on my projects. This is the book that talks about office layouts and environments, interruptions and their affect on reimmersion time for creative workers, anti-team practices (i.e. don't do them!) and so on. Also, this second edition contains a nice short summary of Virginia Satir's change model - which I teach on all my projects and multi-day workshops.

I don't agree with everything in this book (including the title essay). However, it contains the best 5 pages on management ever written - the Standing Naked In The Snow chapter. It's a must read just for that.
