5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable techniques for tackling legacy code in a pragmatic way, keeping in mind the creators as well as the code created., 20 April 2015
Adam Tornhill presents a new way of looking at software systems. By combining forensic psychology with software engineering he is able to shed light on completely new aspects of our code base. This gives us a new set of tools with which we can better understand and improve our legacy code.

By using his knowledge from psychology he also helps us understand how our informal organisational structure and team structure shapes our system. This knowledge is key to create an environment where we can grow solutions organically and move away from legacy systems.

On the whole this is a very good read with extraordinary techniques which will help most programmers and architects tackle legacy systems. Combined with Michel M Feather's Working Effectively with Legacy Code this makes such work more pleasure then pain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The translation making most sence out of Tao Te Ching, 4 Mar. 2002
After having read about sixteen diferent tranlations of this book, this is without a doubt the best translation. It has to have been made with alot of thought given to the time it was originaly writen as well as what it is actualy portraying. The gender roles have been shaken around so that not only men but also women are part of it and it is trouly anti-authorian.
