I got a copy of this awesome book today and I’m so excited, I have to write a post about it :-)!
Yeah, dude, you got yourself a book, whatever.
But it’s in English! I read this holy bible of programming already. But it was only the crappy Czech translation, which is not only a lot worse, it’s actually more expensive than the original version.
The only thing that sucks about this book is, that it’s a paperback. Why the hell does anyone ship a thousand-page book in paperback version only? The explanation is very simple. In fact, it’s written right on the cover. Let’s see if you can figure it out! Here’s a couple of pictures:
You got it! Microsoft Press. Who else could possibly screw up this otherwise perfect piece of literature? Even the Czech version comes in hardcover edition. Yeah, I’m kind of a Microsoft hater. Other than that the book is just amazing. I recommend it to everyone who is serious about software development.
