From the Back Cover:

A landmark chip like the P6 or Pentium 4 doesn't just happen. Ittakes a confluence of brilliant minds, dedication for beyond theordinary, and management that nurtures the vision while keeping afirm hand on the project tiller.

As chief architect of the P6, Robert Colwell offers a uniqueperspective as he unfolds the saga of a project that ballooned froma few architects to hundreds of engineers, many just out of school.For more than a treatise on project management, The PentiumChronicles gives the rationale, the personal triumphs, and thehumor that characterized the P6 project, an undertaking that brokeall technical boundaries by being the first to try an out-of order,speculative super-scalar architecture in a microprocessor.

In refreshingly down-to-earth language, organized around aframework "we wish we had known about then," Chronicles describesthe architecture and key decisions that shaped the P6, Intel's mostsuccessful chip to date. Colwell's inimitable style will havereaders laughing out loud at the project team's creative solutionsto well-known problems. From architectural planning in a storageroom jimmied open with a credit card, to a marketing presentationusing shopping carts, he takes readers through events from theprojects beginning through its production. As Colwell himselfrecognizes, success is all about learning from others, andChronicles is filled with stories of ordinary and exceptionalpeople and frank assessments of "oops" moments, like the infamousFDIV bug.

As its subtitle implies, the book looks beyond RTL models andtransistors to the Intel culture, often poking fun at corporatepolicies, like team-building exercises in which engineersruthlessly shoot down each other's plans. Whatever your level ofcomputing expertise, Chronicles will delight and inform you,leaving you with a better understanding of what it takes to createand grow a winning product.
