This review is from: Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship (Robert C. Martin) (Paperback)
Experienced coders will recognise lots of good and sensible advice in this book, unfortunately, despite being a book that emphasises readability and attention to detail, poor editing and proof reading often result in statements that are misleading, incomplete or simply incorrect. This should not a problem to experienced readers who will know what was meant, but it is enough to leave the people who should benefit from this book struggling.
Not so obvious is that this is a collection of essays from different authors so can sometimes be incoherent or contradictory.
Deeply disapointing is the chapter and appendices on Concurency. The author states that this is hard and then goes out of their way to prove it, providing very little in the way of positive advice or guidelines.
