Guillem Fernandez
Amazing compilation to prepare today’s software organization for the next level of quality, skill and production.

The book is organized in a very easy to follow way and allows you to prepare each of the chapters after reading for practice it by providing highlights, exercises and summaries.

It’s one of those must have if you are part of a software organization and a great lecture for those who related.

I'm particularly fond of the detailed explanations of "connascence", way better than other explanations I've encountered. This section inspired me to use connascence a lot more as a thinking and communications tool.

This book gives a great view of the path that a developer might take towards craftsmanship. I believe it gives a very good overview and guidance to apprentice crafters and experienced crafters will still find useful information.

This is a book in which I can agree with every point they make and still be disappointed. The technical parts (First steps, Walking and Running) distilled the knowledge you should know very nicely.

That is where this book is great and why I would recommend it to developers trying to improve themselves.
