My knowledge of C++ is dated and was never very good. Will this be a hindrance to my reading Agile Software Developement. I've been reading DIP from Object Mentor and

Start to dredge up &, *, ->, and a whole bunch of keywords I'd rather not chase. I don't ever read the GOF because of this issue.

The examples in Martin's Agile Software Development are in both reusable C++ and Java . (That's one of the few books I bought this year.)
I hadn't realised until now that these principles were probably created and named by Martin and others. Possibly a good rule of thumb would be to think of the solution in Java and look for the closest C++ approximation ??? Java Design with C++ syntax ?

The book (www.objectmentor.com/PPP) takes pains to present each solution in both UML and either C++ or Java. If you have a passing acquaintance with either language, you should be fine.

Thanks for your reply.
Had you previously considered entittling this book - Patterns and Advanced Principles of OOD.
I see that title listed in the stability article at object mentor and no where else I search.

Yes, the book had several interim titles:
Principles, Patterns, and Practices of Agile Software Development.
Patterns and Advanced Principles of OOD.
Principles and Patterns of OOD.
etc.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
