Concise review of good design 25 Dec. 2010
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pretty good book on using metrics to guide refactoring of design. The authors use combinations of metrics to find code smells, or what they call "disharmonies". It's quick, only about 160 pages, but definitely worth it. Very good read.
