The book’s emphasis on the smaller software maintenance tasks sets this book apart from others in the software maintenance literature. In practice, many of the smaller maintenance tasks are either evaluative maintenance or corrective maintenance, where, as the book notes, such tasks have often not had the guidance of either vigorous project management or consistent local management attention. This book’s extensive glossary is an outstanding and helpful feature.
