The definitive guide on common-sense software development,
By A Customer
This review is from: Code Complete: A Practical Handbook of Software Construction (Paperback)The subtitle of McConnell's book is "A Practical Handbook of Software Construction". I have found that it lives up to this claim excellently. Like Brook's classic "The Mythical Man-Month" Code Complete offers practical advice on the real-world challenges of software development. Code Complete contains 33 chapters, which can be read as separate essays.
In short, Code Complete belongs in the library of every serious developer.
