       Practice, Principles, and Prejudices.  Addison-Wesley, 1995.  Very
       highly praised by several of my contacts - e.g.  "has the highest ideas-
       to-pages ratio I've ever seen."

       Prentice/Hall, 1990.  Has some treatment of all of the popular
       requirements analysis and specification methods including OOA,
       Structured Analysis, SREM, FSM, but not the "trendy" stuff (Information
       Engineering, JAD).
