A highly recommended read for anyone who deals with designing/designed objects. Settling on many low level decisions involved in making an object once for all, not only helps with the cognitive load of the job, but also takes the consistency of your codebases to the next level.

Great example of condensed style guide which could be applied for different programming languages that implements object oriented paradigm. Even seasoned developers will find this book interesting.
