Head First Design Patterns teaches object oriented design and techniques, using Java.
Summary Of The Book
This is one of the Head First series books that teaches concepts in an easy and interactive manner, with lots of visuals. Head First Design Patterns, as the name suggests, deals with software design patterns. These design patterns can be considered as templates that can be used as a base to develop new code.
According to the authors, it is not necessary to reinvent the wheel when it already exists. Just use it and concentrate on building other things instead. So, this book shows how software design can be made easier by taking advantage of the patterns already out there in the digital universe. Studying some of the best design techniques can really cut down on the development time of new software.
Head First Design Patterns starts with a farcical project - building a duck simulation program. This section is told from the viewpoint of the programmer, Joe, who has to build a virtual duck, with all its appearances and behavior. Using this object model, he has to populate the virtual duck pond.
Using this base, the authors get across concepts like designing and implementing behavior, and encapsulation. In a similar vein, the book progresses, with each chapter taking up a different kind of project to get across different design concepts, and each chapter discussing design patterns that can be used.
Interspersed with the design discussion are many Java techniques, which are also clearly explained in relation to the concept being discussed.
Head First Design Patterns is written in a light style using puzzles, jokes, and visuals to highlight the points being taught.
Head First Design Patterns covers object-oriented concepts, design patterns, and relevant Java features so that at the end of the book, the reader gets a good practical understanding of the subject.

Surely the first step to understand Design patterns!This book presents the design patterns in such a beautiful way that the concepts sits at the back of your mind. It ignites the need of design patterns in your day-to-day work.

Very Descriptive book but bad print qualityI had ordered this book since I liked this book after reading the same from my company Library. Unfortunately its print quality is bad when compared to the edition I have here in my company library (July 2007 for sale in Indian Subcontinent etc).

Awesome book, poor printing qualityThis should be a part of every software engineering curriculum. Many questions that had been plaguing me for weeks were answered even before I finished the first chapter. The style of writing makes it so that even a child can understand the concepts presented here. My only reason for not giving this a 5 star is the poor quality of the printing. Letters are missing here and there and white lines run through some gray scale diagrams. Though it is not so bad as to impair understanding, as a paying customer I believe that I can expect better quality products. I hope the publisher takes steps to re… (Expand)

Its Head First, SE's know it wellLoved the book, the way it tries to load the brain with these fantastic design patterns. However, the authors are so confident and stubborn at places, one may find them rude at times but that's fine with me as Design patterns are not for novices (or just the beginners in programming) anyway.

Just buy itA must buy for every java programmer. Just to make my comment 100 chars. Don't know why flipkart has this restriction. I would suggest to remove the char count to > 1. Thanks!!

Poor quality paper but good contentWatch out, the paper quality is very bad. I already had the earlier version of this book. I was disappointed with the paper and print quality. This is not a fiction book to be read once quickly. You need to read this book patiently. So this kind of poor quality does not help. I am not satisfied with this product.
