    "One of the most forward thinking software books"

    I read and listen too a lot of software books and topics. Books like code complete paved the way to how I approached designing my code and thinking like a good programmer should. That book was and still is great. However since that book was written, it seems many books just say the same thing a different way. We need to keep innovating and keep thinking forward as our industry grows and changes. I think this book hits on some of the more controversial subjects that I'm sure some programmers that have had success doing things a different way will disagree with. You must keep an open mind to all strategies and really think about solutions to problems and rethink and reevaluate ideas that maybe you have dismissed in the past. I like the arguments presented in this book and really think that anyone in the software industry should listen to it.

    "Great advice"

    With 15+ years of experience I was surprised that I failed to disagree with any of the advice offered by the author. A very easy and straightforward listen.
