Great source of information on system design, 4 Oct. 2010
If you are serious about nontrivial C++ system design you should buy this book. I have read many books on object oriented desing, design patterns, refactoring and so on. However, none of those books mentioned placed much emphasis on physical design. This is strange, given that a solid physical design is crucial for creating maintainable, understandable components. As mentioned by other reviewers it is a tough read, but that is a small price to pay for the information that is on offer.
