It's not a matter of skill, it's a matter of attitude
on 10 October 1997
This is an excellent book. If you don't find it good, it means that you have not catch the message that the author is trying to deliver. The message is: "As a professional programmer, you must believe in writing low defects code, and have the attitude to do it." All the examples given in the book are of secondary importance. They are merely included to support the idea and show you how you can achieve it. Don't be blinded by the examples and feel that they are not helpful to your particular domain. As the old saying goes, "It is better to teach a person how to fish then to fish for him/her." It is actually not so difficult to teach a person to fish, but to instill in him/her the faith and attitude to fish is the most difficult thing to do. I'm impressed by this book because it attempts to do so.
