My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Precise and very easy to read. Although i completely disagree with author about the main subject of the book. I do think it’s impossible to produce quality works in 5 days flat. I loved the faq section. In fact , if you are in hurry, u can just go through the faq section. Some of the observations about self publishing sounds interesting. Overall a nice quick read , considering it’s free .

Review: Becoming a Better Programmer: A Handbook for People Who Care about Code

Becoming a Better Programmer: A Handbook for People Who Care about Code by Pete Goodliffe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent read for lethargic coders (including myself). It pin points to small compromises we do on a regular basis , which ultimately backfires and results heavy losses. I love the intuitive and generic code examples . Examples are well placed within texts. This one is absolutely unputdownable . Those comical reliefs deserves special mention.

Review: The Productive Programmer

The Productive Programmer
The Productive Programmer by Neal Ford
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Can be skipped. Basically this book doesn’t suit me at all. Initially most of the tips are elaborately described for windows. Being a linux user , i had to skip those pages. Rest of the book talks about many good practices in a very shallow manner . In those pages author narrowed down to some particular languages (I had to skip pages again ) . Basically i expected a more theoretical and abstract approach which is completely missing in this book . Will explore some more books in this genre.
