Two great books, in one nice ebook. Both books are highly recommended for any developers who are serious about their craft. I would also recommend "The Clean Coder" for anyone working with developers, and who wants to understand more about how developers (should) think and behave.

Shelves: programming
While the book occasionally brings up some good points, overall I felt it was full of things that have been rehashed to death in the programming community and that are largely opinion-based. I wanted to learn techniques and coding styles, not be told that it's a professional duty to have 100% test coverage, which is a highly controversial stance that isn't given any real backing in the book either!

The chapters on soft skills are probably the best and everyone should read those, just to make sure

Grain of salt

There are some timeless truths in this book and I’d recommend it to all aspiring software developers as core reading. That said in an attempt to provide practical advice the specifics have not stood the test of time. So I recommend reading it. I also recommend reading it in a way that you think more about the take away message than the specific words on the page. I can see why it is a classic though.

Definitely a must to read for any programmer. While some ideas and methods might not be right for everyone, it does provide an insight to how we might better manage our time, code and professional output. At the very least you'll see how other pros take to the field, and at worst you'll learn you've been doing it wrong and how to fix your process and mentality

It's great. I'd recommend it to every programmer regardless of his experience. At first I was a bit skeptical about the Clean Coder, but after all I liked it even more than the Clean Code.

Very complete and thorough, this is definitely a pair of books I would recommend any IT worker (whether on the hands on or management level) to read as it provides not only practical usable insight but also organizational enlightenment.

Very good

Very clear explanation and concise.
In later chapters when the author tells stories about his working experience can be a bit boring but it's still really helpful.
Recommended for anyone who wants to take programming professionally.

After hearing uncle Bob in a few podcasts, I decided to read his book. I confess that I am not that sold for JAVA. The case study in the book takes too much time to read.
