"What the book is very much about is a broad, almost philosophical, approach to the activity of debugging in general. … as such it would be a tonic to any jaded programmer struggling with a project. … this was a good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I picked up a few hints and tips on the way, but its real value was in making me tackle the debugging task with a whole new enthusiasm." (Harry Fairhead, Visual Systems Journal, June, 2003)

I just finished reading this book and it was so good that I figured I finally had to write a review, which I have often thought of doing for other books but never actually done. This book is full of great debugging techniques and strategies, many of which I was familiar with but just as many which I had not encountered before. The author uses an engaging style of writing making use of real-life examples from his own career that are both interesting and relevant to the technique he is describing. I found the author to be very knowledgeable and very good at communicating that knowledge.
