"Very good book about software development practice" - by Alex Ott on 20-JUL-2011

From my point of view - this is one of the book, that every programmer should read.  Junior programmers will find many useful information, that allows to greatly improve coding (and related) facilities.
And mature developers (like me ;-) could also find some interesting information, including numbers, that allows to present some ideas to management more clearly....

It's no wonder that it is consistently cited as one of the most influential books on software construction. A lot of sound advice has been collected between it's covers.

I'm glad I read this at the start of my journey into programming and feel sure that I'll be returning on a regular basis for a refresher.
