's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: tech

This had lots of good, practical advice that spanned everything from naming to testing to concurrency. A lot of it was pretty Java centric, so I skimmed a few sections.

By far the best portions of the book were the ones where the author demonstrates -- step by step -- his process for writing code test-first, as well as refactoring.

If you get frustrated with either of the two at times, these parts of the book are *fantastic*, because you see that even someone who's been coding for 40+ years (like Uncle Bob has) writes messy code the first time! He just surrounds it with tests, and then little by little refines it and cleans it up. Awesome.
