Barnes and Noble say:

"Ed Yourdon warned the American programmer in his award-winning, controversial bestseller Decline and Fall of the American Programmer that if they did not change, the industry would migrate to countries that were more productive. The software industry has responded to this challenge, and Yourdon shows how in this long-awaited paperback version of his international bestseller."
