Book Review:
Year 2000 in a Nutshell begins with a comprehensive discussion of the Y2K situation. The author uses separate chapters to address managerial staffing considerations, legal ramifications, conversion steps, and technical background. These critical early chapters are written in a clear tone--at least for managers accustomed to phase-oriented projects.

The author then provides a series of worksheet and questionnaire examples for ascertaining your organization's current vulnerability. These chapters rightly termed this first step triage. There is also a sample master plan for a total solution.

In the remainder of the book, the author gives specific examples and solutions. He begins with a dedicated chapter on COBOL reference, followed by individual chapters on the particulars of date functions in COBOL, PL/1, MVS LE, Visual Basic, and C languages. The book wraps up with a discussion of code scanning (an automated processes of examining your existing code). There is even a sample code-scanner prototype, written in Visual Basic.

As a clear illustration of the problem's magnitude, the book includes an appendix of hundreds of year 2000-related Web URLs for your reference. This title is not a one-stop solution for the Y2K problem. It is, however, an excellent big-picture reference and technical brainstorming tool. --Stephen Plain
