Mini-review: Software Creativity

A great, thought provocative book. Slightly messy, at times repeating itself (made of bits and pieces), or even dull, but this is acknowledged and even advertised as part of the method.

The author bravely questions the groundings of the most common hype of the time: process control.
He shows that few of the recipes advocated in the name of quality assurance are actually backed up by experience or otherwise validated.

The central thesis of the book is that, concerning design, practice is clearly ahead of theory, which means that it is too early to standardize.
