I use it to explain many concepts and I don't even write smalltalk. I have a hard copy and digital. I've also given a copy away as a gift. It has improved communication of ideas for every team I've worked with. Paperback Verified download. I certainly did. While Robert Martin and others have offered up some of the canon of good design for contemporary developers, this little gem really reveals the "feel" of good OO.

Although not a recent book, it gives a great overview of sound object oriented coding practices. At the same time it is an excellent showcase of the beauty of Smalltalk. This book is great for learning design patterns even if you don't know smalltalk.

This is a must read for developers. You don't have to know Smalltalk to be able to learn from patterns presented, they are reusable in other object languages. I'm always looking for ways to make coding work better, at any level from nanosecond arithmetic operations to decade-long enterprise operations. I didn't find much of use here, but there were a few good points here very few.

Let me start with those. The "Execute Around Method" pattern is good idea, applicable far beyond this Smalltalk context.

Most of what's left is either trivial or Smalltalk-specific and face it, Smalltalk is mostly a cult language with nearly no commercial significance. The Smalltalk pretty-printing and variable-naming rules, fatuous at best, are just not applicable to most langages. Some of Beck's "practices" are language features like 'super'.

Other "practices", like the long chapter on Collections, seem to describe standard library classes and messages. Yet others e. Type Suggesting Parameter Name correct language defects - Smalltalk chose to give up the error detection capability offered by variable typing.

Beck tries to sneak it back in with variable naming conventions sort of like Microsoft's old Hungarian naming.

Some of his suggestions are just dangerous, like that one that says a constructor should "half-way construct an object in one place, then pass it off to another to finish construction. The good news is that no new trees died to make my copy of this book - I got it used, and it's returning to the used market.

At least my conscience is clean on that account, no matter what I'm doing to the poor guy who downloads this book next. One of my favorites. The patterns are concise and the examples, priceless. Take this chance to observe the beauty of PURE OO - concise code with the semantic richness and clarity reminiscent of poetry This is a handbook of OO Programming.

Patterns are broken into the following categories: Behavior, State, Collections, Classes, and Formatting. It's definitely one of those rare books that I return to over and over again SBPP has changed me. Kent Beck has changed me.

SBPP shed a new light on my previous knowledge of "patterns" in computer programming. I was deep in the DP tar pit.

SBPP saved me. SBPP changed almost all my thoughts on programming. It has changed what I value, and how I pursue it. Kent Beck says that he is not a great programmer but just a pretty good programmer with great habits.

Build great habits with this book. Read and reread this book every morn. If you have studied DP, this book will open your eyes to the wider world of patterns.

You will think about DPs quite differently after this book. You will be able to escape from the bad effects of DP abuse. When you learn a language it is very important to learn more frequently used words first. It could be less efficient or even dangerous to learn "appreciate" before "thank you ".
