Oh yeah, after all his methods work, Yourdon wrote "Decline and Fall of 
the American Programmer," warning against the evil army of genius Indian 
PhDs who would take all the American programming jobs at fry cook rates. 
:)  Then we did have a period of outsourcing panic, due, I think, not to 
Yourdon's book but to the reality that overseas outsourcing was 
happening.  I believe Yourdon backtracked eventually, but I'd moved on 
to research by then, so I don't recall ever reading past the "Decline 
and Fall" cliffhanger.

Seconded on Michael Jackson.
