You can now purchase from their extensive back catalogue right here on Register Books. But that's not all. We are also offering 40 per cent off* on a selection of Dorset house classics such as Peopleware and Waltzing with Bears for a limited time only.

Check out these modern day classics today and don't miss out on this special offer:

  • Peopleware, 2nd edition: Productive Projects and Teams
    With humour and wisdom drawn from years of management and consulting experience, DeMarco and Lister, two of the computer industry's best-selling authors and lecturers, demonstrate that the major issues of software development are human, not technical - and that managers ignore them at their peril.
  • Waltzing With Bears: Managing Risk on Software Projects
    Waltzing with Bears will help you mitigate the risks - before they turn into project-killing problems. Risks are out there - and they should be there - but there is a way to manage them. The authors, Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister, show readers how to identify and embrace worthwhile risks. Once achieved developers are then set free to push the limits.
  • The Psychology of Computer Programming: Silver Anniversary Edition
    This landmark 1971 classic is reprinted with new commentary and a Preface from the author. Long regarded as one of the first books to pioneer a people-oriented approach to computing, The Psychology of Computer Programming endures as a penetrating analysis of the intelligence, skill, teamwork, and problem-solving power of the computer programmer.
  • Quality Software Management, Vol. 1: Systems Thinking
    Quality Software Management, Vol. 2: First-Order Measurement
    Quality Software Management, Vol. 3: Congruent Action
    Quality Software Management, Vol. 4: Anticipating Change
    This four-volume series on 'Quality Software Management' covers everything from the initial systems design ideas right up to the management of change and how it might affect your software, and consequently your organisation. Written by Gerald M. Weinberg, a leading light in the world of IT consulting, these books offer comprehensive advice on software in your organisation.
  • Surviving the Top Ten Challenges of Software Testing: A People-Oriented Approach
    Software testers require people-oriented skills to survive what can often be a lose-lose relationship with developers and managers. This book goes beyond the technical skillsets required for effective testing to address the political realities that can't be solved by technical knowledge alone.
  • Exploring Requirements: Quality Before Design
    Written by two authorities in the field, this book is a collection of ideas developed, refined, and tested during their more than 60 combined years of work with both large and small organisations. The techniques formulated in Exploring Requirements are not merely theoretical; they have been used effectively to develop a wide range of products - from computer software to furniture, books, and buildings.
  • Why Does Software Cost So Much?: (And Other Puzzles of the Information Age)
    Here's a compact, compelling edition of this acclaimed consultant's views on software engineering wrapped up in 24 masterful essays. Subjects include management-aided engineering, documentation, desktop video, productivity, software factories, teams, measurement, icons, and more!
  • Slack : Getting Past Burnout, Busywork, and the Myth of Total Efficiency
    To most companies, efficiency means profits and growth. But what if your "efficient" company - the one with the reduced headcount and the "stretch" goals - is actually slowing down and losing money? What if your employees are burning out doing the work of two or more people, leaving them no time for planning, prioritising, or even lunch? What if you're losing employees faster than you can hire them? What if your super-efficient company is suddenly falling behind? Tom DeMarco proposes that efficiency is NOT the answer, rather "slackness", or the amount of slack allowed, can change your company for the better.
