4.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent book, 9 Aug. 2010
Enjoyed this. It's relatively short but the content is concise and lucid. Many of the anti-patterns are relatively basic for developers with more than a few years of experience, but it's a highly worthwhile read nonetheless. Along with informative explanations of good practice in developing database-backed applications, there are some really useful tips and insights for solving database problems.
As a team leader in a dev shop, this is the kind of book that I want all my team to read. I'm going to get a few more copies for the company and add it the required reading list along the Code Complete and Clean Code.
