"This stuff works. Competitive Engineering contains powerful tools that are both practical and simple - a rare combination." - Erik Simmons, Intel Corporation, Requirements Engineering Practice Lead, Corporate Quality Network "...reward occurs when you glean the nuggets of wisdom from the numerous practical examples, case studies, and Planguage examples. Tom's way of presenting the CE concepts makes the book a useful addition to the systems engineer's library." - Jerry Huller, Raytheon "I found Planguage to be an interesting and noble idea for the enhancement of communication in the product development environment...Tom meets his objectives in providing a current definition of Planguage concepts and providing a handbook of fundamental SE principles ready for application with his practical experience and unique product development perspective." - Martin Coe President-Closed Loop Engineering, Technical Program Director- INCOSE Colorado "This book is a must read, re-read and study...It is, as promised, a Handbook. Buy it, and you will use it. It will not collect dust on your bookshelf. This book is a wonderful contribution to our Software Engineering literature." - ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes, January 2006 "Competitive Engineering is an original, experience-based, stimulating, thought-provoking, entertaining, and well worth reading software engineering book." - IMPROVE, Software Process Improvement Newsletter "I suspect that this book will prove to be one of the "must read" software development books of 2006." - SD's Agile Modeling Newsletter, February 2006
