Timeless reference for the software professional
The book contains a carefully selected collection of articles on requirements engineering by many well-known authors. Some of the articles are original milestone papers (Boehm's on Spiral Process), some are specifically created or adopted for this publication(A.Davis's survey of documenting techniques). Thayer and Dorfman suceeded at maintaining a fine balance between being academic and practical. They do not advocate any methods or processes - they just present the best of accumulated knowledge. I shall warn that it can be a bit taxing read if you are a faint-hearted. But if you strive to be a professional, you will rip long-term benefits from (reading at least some of) the articles. The curious practitioner will have an opportunity to understand what software requirements are and where they fit into software process. Recommendation: buy now.
