4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to agile coding 26 April 2009
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book in the expectation that it would give a solid introduction to various agile methods - both coding principles as well as agile processes. It turned out to be focused primarily on coding principles ... of course, when you think about it ... it does after all focus on C# principles, patterns and practicies. You will see lots of coding examples (too many in my opinion) and very little about the agile processes around the actual coding. So it sure does deliver what it promisses: you will see how to actually implement coding patterns in C#.

If this is your first book on good object oriented patterns and practices then it's a good buy. If you already know your patterns, well, then it's a good brush up worth reading anyway.

If your are looking for a book on agile process like XP and Scrum then this is the wrong book.

As a senior C# programmer on my job I will certainly recomend new colleges to read this book.

I have a bookshelf groaning with books on C# and agile software development. This is without doubt the best I've read. Robert Martin has somehow managed to distil his experience of many years into one cohesive tome, which is easy to read and provides practical advice on all aspects of development - agile, TDD, UML and design patterns.

As for the previous reviewer who gave this a ludicrous 1 star review and suggests the GOF as a better alternative, I would suggest that he is either an abstract genius, or has never actually read the GOF stuff and is just name-checking this in a poseur like fashion!

For the rest of us, this is probably as good as it gets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book 3 Aug 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was impressed with this book, it is easy to read and has many useful points in it. It does occasionally labour points and in parts could be clearer, but all in all it is a well written and helpful book.

For an introduction to the SOLID principles, which is what I bought it for, it was excellent.

If you want a book that gives an introduction to Agile as a whole it is not the best available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 4 Jan 2014
By Pete
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is certainly not for beginners. It is for anyone who wants to get very serious about programming. I think the book could have been shorter by leaving out pages of examples (since the target audience is advanced developers as well). I think this is probably the best development book I've ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it! 13 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Every software developer should read this book.
It's packed with information and examples by an author who has been there and done it.
And actually invented quite a lot of it.
If we all read this book, work would be so much more productive.
