I found this book to be a source of good common sense in software development. It's written in a clear, easy to understand manner. It has a nice habit of cross referencing itself, which helps read the book in any order you like, or come back and revisit parts. It's a refreshing read, and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to improve their development practices and/or smooth out most nasty surprises in software development.

I'm a bit of a self-taught programmer, and I wish I had read this earlier in my learning process. I've seen examples in my own code of software entropy, stone soup, boiled frogs, and others. The advice this book offers is very sound - pragmatic even.
