As a rule I greatly enjoy books about the craft of programming in general, as contrasted to the fiddly details of a particular language or system, and this book was no exception. It concentrates on techniques at the class/module and project level, such as testing and design principles, with only passing mention of low-level coding issues such as style guides or optimization. In some ways it's like a much slimmer version of Steve McConnell's Rapid Development book. Worth reading just to be aware of what good software development practices consist of.
