A Classic

This is the first book on systems analysis that made sense to me, and I find this copy, bought to replace a long lost hardback, as fresh and clear as ever.

Data flow diagrams are a superb idea, clearly explained and brought to life here. Would that systems could be built this way. The other parts of structured analysis: mini-specs and data structure diagrams, now seem to me ill matched and too low-level. The exposition correspondingly drags a bit: hardly the author's fault.

You can get thirty or so pages free on the internet at They give you the gist of the argument and illustrate the author's expository talents. Take a look. Then buy the book.
