The Cathedral and the Bazaar

I have read this book of essays a couple of times, the last time as a refresher for a project I am currently working on.  I like the book, its approachable and well informed and covers the history and philosopy of Open Source well. 

However it does suffer from being a collection of essays, and not a well structured book, and some of the analysis is a little superficial.  For a thorough treatment of the subject I recommend

The Success of Open Sourceby Steven Weber

Its worth noting though that you don’t need to buy the book, its available online here.
