I have over 10 years professional IT experience and wanted to find out about GoF. I bought this book as it pledges to make a complex subject easy to read and understand with its brain friendly technique. However, I found the style extremely difficult to digest and time consuming to read as the book shifts the reader's focus away from the important subjects to concentrate on humour and ridiculous scenarios. Also, the notes everywhere hinders the readers natural flow. I gave up on the book 1/3 of the way through having got tired and frustrated with it. Perhaps I am too used to dry textbooks that focus on the subjects.
