I found managing projects with make to be below the usual very high quality of O'Reilly books. That is to say if it was by some other publisher I would be pleased with it, but O'Reilly has so consistently produced very high quality technical books that I was disappointed by the lack of depth.
I still feel reasonably safe in recommending it as a good book to learn how to use make, but that's all it is. It would be nice to include more information about how use it for applications beyond simply compiling c, assembly, and lib's into applications.

It's good, but I've used Make for so long that it really didn't need to be.

This has been a good reference book when writing make files etc. It is small and easy to navigate.

This is about "managing projects", it's about building projects, and it could have been a pamphlet. Plus the ideas about how to test whether a version of make has particular capabilities is in an appendix instead of with the material where it would have fit easily. Plus, it's not in the best order for a beginner to learn. Nevertheless, it's a better introduction than any other I've found.

I recently had to work on our project's make file. The first look at it made me nervous. Fortunately I found this book. This book is a great introduction to unix' power tool 'make'. The authors clearly had enough experience to tell us what,how and whys. The first chapter generates excitement to continue on to the next ones. Chapters two and three must be read with lots of patience. Remember, 'make' is a complex tool used for complex projects. Its not an easy go.Troubleshooting section listed some common problems, which, by the way, are really helpful. The project management is good too. The only complaint I have with this book is it is a little pricey.For thirty bucks, I expect more bang. The authors could have updated the book with new breed of make tools like Apache's 'ant'. An example of building a project could have really helped. The man pages listed for 'make' on my unix system didnt take me far enough to grasp this tool. I highly recommend it to beginners.

The author does an excellent job of covering a complex subject. However, from the view of a fairly new unix user assigned to manage a complex project, the book did not introduce and explain the subject in as clear a manner as needed. It is a book that must be read more than once in order for all of the pieces to come together. The use of object libraries was treated on only a couple of pages but not to the depth needed for this user to produce make files that will efficiently compile and link the source files and libraries used in his project.

Before reading this book, I had already had some experience with 'make' utilities through my experiences with the OpenVMS Module Management System (MMS) facility (Compaq's version of make). At our site, We use MMS and Make not only for product compilation, but also for product versioning and installation as well. Although this book contains more material then the UNIX man pages, this small book (<125 pages) really didn't expand my knowledge of make (I found the OpenVMS MMS user documentation more enlightening, although still lacking). This book tries to be all things to all people, and ends up being a few things to some. For the next edition, the authors should consider expanding the content to include more real-world examples, shortcuts and tricks. The book should also place more emphasis on using the 'makedepend' utility as well as maintaining products with multiple versioned subsystems.
This book is a good book to have handy, for people like me who sometimes struggle with makefiles.

It is short, easy to read, and packed with information that will save you time.
