Book containing conversations between programmers

I was reminded of a book about OO Design or Design Patterns when I read
Peer Reynders' "Conversations with a guro" post. Parts (all?) of this
book was written as a as a story/conversation between two programmers.

The conversations gave you an insight in their way of thinking.. perhabs
the book was about XP or pair programming..?

Does this ring a bell?

Thanks in advance,

I don't know if it's the one you recall, but "Extreme Programming in Practice" by James Newkirk and Robert C martin (Addison Wesley 2001, ISBN 0201709376) seems to fit your description.

Maybe you are looking for this one:

Object Models: Strategies, Patterns, and Applications (2nd Edition)

It describes how to build domain models for 5 applications and is based only on person to person conversation. By the way it's wellknown in the Feature Driven Development Community


I agree. Here's the link:
