I just finished reading this book for the first time. It's a book I know I should have read a long time ago but just never got around to it. The book is packed full of good ideas. Some of the practical examples may be out of date (a lot of C++, Makefiles, CVS, etc.), but the core ideas still hold true. Many of these ideas a baked into the Ruby/Rails tools and the philosophy is generally shared throughout the community as well, so it's nice to see the roots of these ideas.
