I don't find a sample chapter on Amazon. So I just get some information from book description and reviews. I always think Design Patterns is a book of a collection of good practices: how to construct a class, how classes collaboration with each other, etc.

1. How is Implementation Patterns book different from Design Patterns book?
2. Are there any general rules behind the tips you exhibit in your book? Somehing like OO Principles in Uncle Bob's book.

thanks

Design Pattern books typically describe their patterns in a pattern format, which isn't the case for "Implementation Patterns". Also, the implementation patterns Kent describes are lower-level than design patterns.

Louis,

I agree with the other posters that Implementation Patterns are smaller scale than design patterns--intra- rather than inter-object. The book does discuss the values and principles behind the patterns, which is part of what makes it not just another Java style book.
