One of a very small number of general software development books which
disdain the ivory tower of theoretical methodology, and deal with
real, practical issues. It covers a broad sweep of the craft of
software development, with examples for a variety of languages and
systems, in a light yet detailed style. I cannot recommed this book
highly enough. If you are just embarking on a career in software
development this is a great way to get to the heart of what it's all
about. Even if you have been developing software for years you will
find yourself nodding in agreement at some points, smiling at others
and wondering why you never thought of the rest. The pull-out card of
70 "tips" is worth the price alone. Keep this book where you work, and
dip into it. Often.(Frank Carver - Sherriff, Nov 2000)
