How do the experts solve difficult problems in software development? In this unique and insightful book, leading computer scientists offer case studies that reveal how they found unusual, carefully designed solutions to high-profile projects. You will be able to look over the shoulder of major coding and design experts to see problems through their eyes. This is not simply another design patterns book, or another software engineering treatise on the right and wrong way to do things. The authors think aloud as they work through their project's architecture, the tradeoffs made in its construction, and when it was important to break rules. "Beautiful Code" is an opportunity for master coders to tell their story. All author royalties will be donated to Amnesty International.

Einige Artikel haben auch das geboten, was ich mir erhofft hatte, nämlich eine interessante Lektüre, die man gemütlich auf dem Sofa lesen kann. Allerdings erfordern nicht wenige Stellen schon etwas Konzentration. Das ist natürlich nicht notwendigerweise schlecht, aber wenn dann bei manchen Autoren der Schreibstil eher zäh ist und man sich beim "Durcharbeiten" des Textes an seine Unizeit erinnert fühlt, blättert man als Berufstätiger im Feierabend vielleicht doch das eine oder andere Mal ungeduldig zum nächsten Kapitel.
Alles in allem ist "Beautiful Code" schon OK und etwas besser als es meine 3 vergebenen Sterne ausdrücken können - ein "4 Sterne"-Buch ist es für mich persönlich jedoch nicht.
Man sollte nicht versuchen immer alles zu verstehen, sondern sich von den niedergelegten Gedankengängen inspireren lassen.
Insgesamt aber positiv: über 30 Top-Autoren, vielseitige Themen, einige Perlen... Mit über 550 Seiten ist garantiert für jeden Quellcode-affinen Leser etwas passendes dabei. Von einigen Beiträgen (z.B. Alberto Savoia, Beautiful Tests) war ich begeistert, andere (z.B. Charles Petzold, On-The-Fly Code Generation for Image Processing) wirkten für mich wie Schlaftabletten.
Fazit: War meist nett zu lesen. Kein "Must-have", am besten ausleihen...
During my studies I had to go through all these Kernighans, Ritchies, Knuths, Ahos, Petzolds, and so on. I don't say I didn't liked them however, Beautiful Code reminds me all these books some way. Each problem described is somehow intriguing and innovative while at the same time you can say ' hey, I have read that already, somewhere. Don't let me be misunderstood, I value the book, but for me, and for now, it's not the best pick. Hawking wrote once: 'Somebody told me, that each equation put into my book will reduce the number of sold copies by two ' thus I have referred to just one'. Well, Beautiful Code has much, much more than one equation inside.
