XP = the Psuedo Revolution,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change (Aw Professional) (Taschenbuch)
The claim, in one of the reviews here, that this book is going to rank w/the Gang of 4 book is patently absurd. This book attempts through a kind of Jonathan Edwards Fire and Brimstone approach to convince the reader to get its religion, but when you sum it all up, there isn't much religion to get. All the pillars of the methodology have little or no exposition in the book (unit testing, pair programming, constant builds). They are all mentioned and meekly argued for, but none of them are actually examined. Furthermore, I remember quite distinctly reading about pair programming in Larry Constantine's far better Peopleware a LONG TIME AGO!
Let me add one other crucial point here: this book attempts to achieve acceptance with the reader through creating an impression of both an epiphany and validation. I found that a lot of things that were being espoused here are things I've been doing a long time. I believe many people will find that to be true and consequently will like the book because of the sense of validation it gives. However, when I was done, I couldn't help but think about how much more could have been done here! How about talking about actual unit testing examples? Why not talk about structure within groups; it's far too easy to just say everyone should be doing everything. Profiling, for instance, is clearly not something everyone should be doing. Like so many things in the modern world, this is largely a retread wrapping itself in the cloak of a revolution.
