This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
The authors put in a lot of effort to make HFSJ a great study material for us. One of the authors founded JavaRanch. Another of them moderates. And the other graciously stops by to answers questions on the SCWCD forum from time to time. They're good people.
I'm glad you're so excited about buying a copy of HFSJ. It will be well worth your money.
