This review is from: The Art of Unix Programming (Addison-Wesley Professional Computing) (Paperback)
I bought this book expecting a pleasant lightweight read, having seen some of the draft chapters on Raymond's website. However the insight of certain sections ( especially the commentaries ) far exceeded my expectations. Many times I experienced a little 'satori', particularly in the section on modularity which is is the best I have read on the subject. If I had seen this book 10 years ago I would have dismissed a lot of it as platitudes. Now I recognise it as wisdom.
