Dear Nag,

The purpose of the book is spelled out on the back cover: to help programmers communicate with other programmers through their code. Wherever I found a common problem with several reasonable solutions, I picked the one that communicated most clearly. Many of the patterns have code examples, some from real code and some from invented examples.

Does that answer your question?
