The quintessential guide to modern outsourcing, this gem of a book, laced with real-world examples, will appeal to both experts and newbies alike. A must-read for anyone venturing into this territory.

I manage several highly distributed development teams, including teams in Russia. Outsource It! is a very pragmatic, easy-to-read "how to" reference, which has practical recommendations for addressing the most common decisions and challenges with outsourced projects. In particular, I liked Nick's observations about cultural differences between popular outsourcing destinations, as it matched my personal experience, and I could clearly relate to many situations described in his book.

If you want to work with outsourcing, Outsource It! is the book you need. All the steps are described, and for each step, a lot of pragmatic tips. If you already work with outsourcing, as I do with offshore projects and freelancers, you will still learn many things.

If you are tasked with managing overseas outsourcing in any capacity, you owe it to yourself to read Nick Krym's new book, Outsource It!: A No-Holds-Barred Look at the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Offshoring Tech Projects. Your boss will thank you.

If you are considering or planning to establish an offshore effort, the Good, Bad, and Ugly is a must read. If you already have an offshore center or vendor (as I do) and are not satisfied with the productivity and/or results this is a must read.
