My Rating


I’m disappointed. I expected more from this book. Being that I want to become a software craftsman, I thought this book is going to give me a fairly clear direction on how to get there. There are some bits and pieces of it, but not very convincing.

What I did not like about this book, is that the author is a craftsman himself, but he wrote in 3rd person. If this was based on his experiences, if this book was more personal, it would have been more convincing. It would have been a lot more interesting. Even though I believe in software craftsmanship, I don’t necessarily agree with bashing software engineering in favor of craftsmanship. I belive both fit together well.

Don’t get me wrong, you’ll find some useful information in this book (that’s why I gave it 3.5 stars), but overall it is just a light treatment of Software Craftsmanship.
