A book by expert developers for expert developers,
This review is from: Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests (Beck Signature) (Paperback)
This isn't a book for beginners. It's a book for competent or expert programmers looking to become even better.
As you go through the book it feels like you're paired up with an articulate expert, guiding you through the process of developing a non-trivial application from scratch. I haven't come across many (any?) other books that describe the process and reasoning behind development decisions so clearly and in such detail.
If you're a strong developer (especially if you're familiar with Java) I highly recommend this book. You'll get a lot out of it.
