Waltzing with Bears – Managing Risks on Software Projects. Tom DeMarco and Tim Lister. Dorset House, 2003.

"Running away from risk is a no-win proposition. Sometimes you come across a project that looks positively risk-free. In the past, you may have looked at such an endeavor as a 'slam dunk' and thanked your lucky stars to be given an easy project for a change. We've had the same reaction. What dummies we were. Those projects weren't worth doing at all."
