Shelves: antipatterns
As you might guess from the title, this is a book which catalogues a series of anti-patterns, ie patterns of behaviour and organisation which produce negative results, and then tries to identify ways of breaking down, diverting, mitigating or counteracting the unwelcome behaviour.

It's largely successful - some of the sections feel like they've been created by hair-splitting differences from others, but overall it's a collection of mostly good insight and mostly good advice.
