      I am currently reading 'Innovators Dilemma' again and trying to work out if
      XP is a backhoe.

      But like Marco, I am reading less software/programming books & articles.
      There aren't many books out there which tell you how to do the simplest
      thing possible. If anyone knows of such a book, please let me know.

        Decision Frameworks for Project Management by Goldberg and Rubin, and
