Code Reading: Open Source Perspective
This unique and essential reference focuses on the reading and comprehension of existing software code. The concepts are supported by examples taken from real-world open source software projects. The focus upon reading code (rather than developing and implementing programs from scratch) provides for a vastly increased breadth of coverage.

Strange book. Author states that target audience are developers who need to quickly dive into big codebase, understand and fix a bug or add a feature. IMO those folks are expected to know basics, like simple data structures and basic language constructs. But for some reason most of the book is devoted to such simple matters. There are interesting few bits and pieces here and there, but overall I was disappointed by the book. I wouldn't recommend unless you are just starting in the field.
