Good content, not a great publication, even worse indexing!
on 27 May 2011
I have owned this product for two days and can see that the content is well structured with numerous code examples to see how the design patterns may be applied in real-life.
However, I have two problems with this product:
1) The book is not indexed correctly. According to the index, a UML representation of the Strategy Pattern can be found on p.114. Um, try p.116!! Apprently the MVC pattern can be found on p.344-345... Perhaps not. It's actually from p.348 onwards. I know this is a petty thing to complain about, but I expect a book's index to reference content correctly as a bare minimum and it gets annoying when you want to find something quickly!
2) There are typos and grammatical mistakes which can become annoying at times.
That said, these are the only two problems I have with the book and I'm sure you'll be happy with your purchase if you can see past them.
