    It is the cover for the book –The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering by Fred Brooks, whose central theme is that “adding manpower to a late software project makes it later”. This idea is known as Brooks’ law, and is presented along with the second-system effect and advocacy of prototyping.
