Overview

"Yourdon takes a detailed look at how to improve projects and personal and organization's performance as well. And he analyzes some of today's hottest technologies, such as Java, and takes a look at the future of the Internet. His book provides resources for navigating no matter how the chips fall." -Alan R. Earls, Computerworld, July 1996

"For American programmers, the message of this book is clear: Stay up-to-date and value innovation and talent. Yourdon's strategies can help to meet these goals." -Steve Apiki, Byte Magazine, July 1996

"Yourdon suggests that new technologies and new markets are changing the rules of the game. As with his earlier book, Decline and Fall of the American Programmer, I believe that professional software developers will serve themselves poorly if they don't pay attention to Yourdon's carefully researched message." -Peter Coffee, PC Week, March 1996

"Ed Yourdon ruffled feathers in the software industry with his 1992 book, Decline and Fall of the American Programmer. His latest book, Rise and Resurrection of the American Programmer, sounds a more optimistic note in asserting that a new generation of programmers are doing exciting things that competitors haven't started to do yet." -Sherrie Van Tyle, Electronic Design, May 1996

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines national and international trends in the software industry in a somewhat more optimistic light than the author's 1992 Decline and Fall of the American Programmer. Focuses on worldwide competition to the traditional application developer, and looks at the new generation of American programmers leading the industry, changes in the competitive situation in the past four years, and new technologies and applications on the horizon. For professional programmers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
