    Microsoft Press would like to congratulate our good friend Karl Wiegers for reaching a wonderful milestone in technical publishing: his Software Requirements has sold over 100,000 copies! The reviews at Amazon help to explain why Karl’s book is so successful. 48 of 51 reviews are 4- or 5-starrers. Not only does Karl describe nearly 50 requirements engineering best practices, categorizing them by both impact (high, medium, low) and difficulty (high, medium, low), he also tells numerous stories—all true—that illustrate typical requirements-related experiences.

    Kimberly here. In July, one reader included the following comment in a book survey: “I'm not convinced these surveys are always looked at, but I always live in hope!” Well, dear reader, I am here to assure you that your hopes are fulfilled on a regular basis! Back in January, when we launched our new book survey, we also launched a formal program to review the results. Each quarter, we look at the results for the books that sold during that quarter in two ways. First, we derive a numerical customer satisfaction score from the quantitative data. We report that score to the Microsoft Learning organization and it becomes part of our goals as a Microsoft Press team. Second, the Microsoft Press team meets to review all the comments for the books in a particular series or that cover a particular...
