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.
I have been reading the reviews on amazon.com. Some are quite negative, some very positive. What impressed me, though, is the emphasis on design patterns and best practices. This is often not given enough attention. Large programs can be maintained so much easier even after they have been changed and added on, if these principles are given the proper attention from the very beginning on. Volker
