If you are a beginner to design patterns, this book is not intended for you. This book is intended as a supplement to on of the other design pattern books and in particular the GoF book. If you have read one of the other books and feel comfortable that you can recognize the patterns when you come across them and feel that you have developed a solid foundation then you do not need to read further. This book is not for you.
If you are like me and found that you need to read more to build your design patterns foundation then this book is excellent for that. I found that the best use for me was to read a pattern in the "GoF" and then read the pattern in this book.
I did find a few problems with the book. Some of the exercises seemed a little off track for a design patterns book, although they were still good exercises. There were also a few typos. The book is a pretty quick read with lots of diagrams and sample code.
