it was amazing

Excellent book on software development. I read the first version years ago. It was well worth picking up the second version as a refresher. The book covers everything from personal character to how to format a for loop, it's a must read for improving your skills and to help you realize how far you still have to go.

The only problem I have with the book is the formatting. It's a nightmare of little quotes, references and key point icons (with a picture of a key - thanks...) cluttering up each page, with section headlines aligned on the quotes rather than the sections and further reading material listed every few pages rather than at the end. Given the focus the book has on readable code it's a shame the book format is such a dog's breakfast.
