“From the first edition in 1999 through each successive edition, the guidance that Software Requirements
provides has been the foundation of my requirements consulting practice. To beginning and experienced practitioners alike, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”
–Roxanne Miller, President, Requirements Quest
“This new edition keeps pace with the speed of business, both in deepening the foundation of the second edition and in bringing analysts down-to-earth how-to’s for addressing the surge in agile development, using features to control scope, improving elicitation techniques, and expanding modeling.”
–Keith Ellis, President and CEO, Enfocus Solutions Inc.
“I especially like the latest topic on how to apply effective requirements practices to agile projects. The practical guide and real examples of the many different requirement practices are invaluable.”
— Doreen Evans, Robbins Gioia Inc.
“The best book on requirements just got better! The third edition’s range of new topics expands the project circumstances it covers. Using requirements in agile environments is perhaps the most significant, because everyone involved still needs to understand what a new system must do–and agile developers are now an audience who ought to have a good grasp of what’s in this book.”
–Stephen Withall, author of Software Requirement Patterns
“The third edition of Software Requirements is finally available–and it was worth waiting so long. Full of practical guidance, it helps readers identify many useful practices for their work. I particularly enjoy the examples and many hands-on solutions that can be easily implemented in real-life scenarios. A must-read, not only for requirements engineers and analysts but also for project managers.”
–Dr. Christof Ebert, Managing Director, Vector Consulting Services

–Shane Hastie, Chief Knowledge Engineer, Software Education
