Perhaps the title of this book is unfortunate, given the fact that those who have posted bad reviews here seem to have expected it to be an extension of the GoF Design Patterns book. (In which case they would have been better off with the GoV A System of Patterns book.) All such expectations aside, however, this book is an enjoyable guide to project management that is well worth reading. As for the criticism that it is nothing more than common sense packaged as wisdom, I would argue that common sense is nothing more than applied wisdom, and the common sense this book aims to teach is sadly lacking in too many companies today (hence the existence and popularity of Dilbert).
BTW, the reviewer who attributed the quote, "there is nothing new under the sun" to Shakespeare might be amused, given the nature of the quote itself, to find that it was originally written by Solomon (in Ecclesiastes 1:9), quite some time prior to Shakespeare! There is nothing new, indeed.

In 1994, a book was published that caused a mini-revolution in the field of software development. The book was _Design Patterns_ by Gamma et. al. Their approach was to describe software in terms of patterns, which are abstractions that are more general than a standard algorithm. Since that time, a small but growing band of individuals have made great progress in the codification and application of patterns. Preliminary indications are that properly understood, and it is problematic that anyone really does at this time, and applied patterns will have a substantial affect on software development.
An antipattern is a pattern that has negative consequences when applied. This ranges from the antipattern that almost always leads to a negative consequence to those that are generally positive, but lead to negative results when used in the wrong context. One example is the Cut-and Paste Programming antipattern. We all have benefited from the use of cut and paste and we have all suffered when we used it in an inappropriate situation. Many such examples are given, and fortunately for us all, for each antipattern the authors provide instructions on how to recognize it, what causes it and how to cure it. Anyone who has worked in software development has experienced one or more of these problems.
In keeping with a negative often being more significant than a positive, it is quite possible that the study of antipatterns will yield more substantial results than similar effort being expended elsewhere. That is why I included this book in my list of best books of the year that appeared in the September, 1999 issue of _Journal of Object-Oriented Programming_.

After reading the reviews here on Amazon, I simply had to find out what it was about AntiPatterns that so polarized people.
I'm glad I did. This book has to be the absolute best PATTERNS book I have ever read.
As a software systems consultant in the real world, I loved Design Patterns, but I'm finding that I USE AntiPatterns practically weekly while explaining complex ideas to clients.
It is highly enjoyable to read, steeped with useful insight, and wonderfully illustrated. I hope these guys write more.

If only all the compter lit I have to read was this great. Some guys in class said it's just a "rehash of well-known computer mistakes like Spaghetti Code." I don't think they read it, because it also helps you *fix* them. Besides, someone *needed* to formalize these terms so everyone knows exactly they mean. For example I have a major "lava flow" anti-pattern happening on my thesis project right now -- wish I'd read it before I started!

AntiPatterns: Worth it just for the shear fun of it.
I have never enjoyed reading about the foibles of software development and software project management than reading the AntiPatterns book.
Not only does this book tell you about a number of AntiPatterns, but you also get Patterns or refactored solutions to deal with the AntiPatterns.
I just skimmed the introductory chapters, so I could get to the meat of the book: the AntiPatterns. As you read through them, you will be nodding your head. Quite a number of them are just plain common sense. However, if you have not "Been there, done that", you will truly appreciate them.
I also like the fact they have AntiPatterns at all levels of Software Development. From the Blob: a CLASS that does it ALL, to the CORNCOB: the individual who says: "We must use CORBA". This book will be useful for all participants from the developer to the Project Manager.
I congratulate the authors on an informativ! e and entertaining book!

Well researched, methodically organized, and convincingly exposed. The book is an intelligent attempt at addressing software development project problems (categorized into Architectural, Developmental, and Managerial), identifying their root causes, and suggesting remedies. And the authors do so without being too philosophical nor prescriptive. If a "pattern" explicates a design approach that works in different contexts, an "antipattern" is a literary form describing a typical solution to a problem that generates decidedly negative consequences. By focusing on failures proactively ("two-thirds of all software projects encounter cost overruns in excess of 200%"), the book makes its readers mindful of the nature and consequences of every single decision in a software project. I relate to every insight in this book. A fantastic read and a permanent reference.

This one is okay but far from great. Mowbray's books make a few good points but you have to wade through way too much fluff. Straight and to the point works best for me. The first few chapters were lacking, though the book is somewhat entertaining and makes several good points.

This book was quite a disappointment, especially since I heard so much about it. As Shakespeare said "There is nothing new under the sun" and this book proves it. It's really just putting fancy or cute titles (corncob!) on quite obvious, well-known software development problems. I don't think I saw a new or original thought in it except for the title. Having said all that, it might be a useful introduction to classic, well-known s/w problems for someone new in the field.

My experience in reading this book has been very much like: (1) Reading Dilbert -- It's a somewhat fun look at problems all to familiar to experienced developers and managers. (2) Reading someone's viewgraphs after missing the presentation -- The authors attempt to catalog the AntiPatterns, so many ideas are presented in bulleted form. Buzz words are perhaps overused, too. (3) Reading the Bible -- Many sentences are just too abstruse for me. A lot of effort is required to get the (apparently) *deeper* meaning.
The book's greatest, lasting value will be in codifying the many recurring software development problems, and establishing a vocabulary for discussing them. I hope a later edition will correct some of the recondite language.

If your company's walls are littered with Dilbert cartoons, then there's a strong possiblity it can benefit from this book.
AntiPatterns classifies, in serious tone but approachable language, generic problems that get in the way of success. After taking a strong look at the root issues, it help to formulate workable solutions to those problems.
I found it to be well organized and uncannily familiar.
