I'm not just reading this book, I'm implementing it. Since I don't work in Java or C++ I rewrite each pattern and look at every line. This is perfect. I end up learning the pattern to the extent that when I come across it at work I feel it approaching like a bus in the city at a street corner. I'm strapped to the front of a Saturn booster and I'm already going faster than the speed of sound. The sky is turning dark blue. I wrote an acceptance test framework over the holiday after reading chapter four on testing. My unit test code is so simple now it makes me blush. I can't hear anything anymore because I'm going faster than sound. But I'm not hurrying. Work is being done. Design flows like the thrust pushing that star ship. We're going somewhere. It's rubbing off. I find myself at the white board with other guys in my office talking and having fun like a bunch of happy programmers. Fun, yeah. Intellectually fun. We're moving fast and if somebody gets in the way I can stop. Let me tell you about this new thing I just learned... This book is a working man's book. You'll end up using these gems as tools. You'll find design easy. Your brain has already been wrapped around the common problems you work on every day. You'll go, "Oh, yeah. I saw that in this book". It's concise like code with every line essential - no fluff. The fluff was removed. You've got principles, patterns and practices with examples. You won't learn this stuff without examples. I find myself wanting more examples. Give me a range Uncle Bob, give me the range. Guess what. The range is our there in the application of the principles, patterns and practices. Care to go exploring? Get this book!
