New programmers will benefit from reading this book, and applying its recommended development practices. It is important enough that I will claim that your career will taken to a new level. My experience working with many programmers is that at least half of them needed to adopt the practices covered by this book (not you of course!).

Experienced programmers will get a queasy feeling, knowing they have cut some corners to get code delivered a day or so earlier, and that it will come back to bite them soon.

This is not an Extreme Programming (XP) book, though the author seems in favour of XP. It is more about how to program, design, and test well. I particularly liked the explanation of Technical Debt, which other books and blogs mention without explaining.

Read the e-book on the bus to work!
