I didn't know how little I knew

Once you get past the first chapter, which states a lot of what anyone would consider to be obvious, it gets into an area which will make you reassess your practices.
It made me appreciate how much time saving later a little investment in practicing good programming style can make.
Although the book works through examples in C, C++ and Java, with a little perl, awk and Tcl for good measure, it is relevant to any language.
Ada programmers especially should read it instead of believing that the language does it all for them.
