This review is from: Beautiful Code: Leading Programmers Explain How They Think (Theory in Practice (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
This book takes you through several examples of what some top programmers consider beautiful code. As a by-product the book reads more like a collation of articles from a coder's version of Cosmopolitan magazine rather than a programmer's erotic novel. However I cannot complain about this as I did only by the book for a specific chapter. Simon Peyton Jone's article on "Beautiful Concurrency", it is a beautiful read, especially around Christmas time.
