This book is repetitive at times and mentions content already covered in some of the other books in the Robert C. Martin series. I think part of this repetition is due to many of the chapters being authored by different writers, which also occasionally prevents the book from flowing smoothly.

The book is a quick read and raises some interesting arguments on how code should be written. However, if you've read other books in the Robert C. Martin series, you might skip this one. Or if you have the chance to just borrow the book, consider looking at the last chapter on code smells and heuristics, where Martin provides his reasoning behind what makes good code.
