3.0 out of 5 stars
Certainly an enjoyable, feel-good book, but, I'm not convinced that it is a "must read"., 20 Feb. 2011
The ideas presented are still very relevant today despite the examples being rather dated. The writing style puts ideas across in a clear, easy to read manner. The choice of phrasing for some points is excellent, specifcally when describing Technical Debt. However, as a more experienced developer, I found the content to be too high level for me to take a lot away. At the same time, the book covers such a breadth in topics that I'm not convinced enough detail has been given for someone starting out in their career either.
Overall, I'm glad that I've read The Pragmatic Programmer but feel I am unlikely to go back to it.
