Poor quality paper but good content

Watch 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… (View complete review)

Awesome book on design patterns

This book has taught me design patterns from the very beginning.It caters fundamentals of designing applications (in addition to explaining design patterns) which most design patterns book fail to do.
This book will help you learn design concepts from scratch,though this book cannot be used as a catalogue of design patterns. Once this book is covered, a catalogue can be referred to for implementing design patterns.
One notable feature of this book is it explains how to modify and fit a particular design pattern for your requirements

I was completely intrigued with the way this book has been w

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.

It's a true story that I read about something called "Observer pattern" and a month later I suggested a new feature in the product I am working on at IBM. Currently I am involved in its development - thanks to this book.

I appreciated the true use of UML diagrams in the book. Every design pattern is explained with the help of UML diagrams wherever necessary. Along with design patterns, now I understand UML paradigm in

WoW!

Unlike a lot of people, I don't care much for this book's 'irreverent' sytle. I think it masks some shortcoming in the examples it uses. But once you get past that, this is still the best introduction to object-oriented programming that I have read.

HFDP is not just about design patterns. It's a great introduction to object-oriented programming. The book does a great job of explaining the benefits of OOP over traditional procedural programming, and it explains OOP very well in terms of the most commonly used design patterns.

Now for the bad news. The examples are rather lightweight. They d

Very Descriptive book but bad print quality

I 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).
The edition that I have is the same version(October 2011 Edition Reprint for sale in Indian Subcontinent) but the latest reprint.
Unfortunately this reprint is pretty bad compared to the 2007.
Both are grayscale printing but somehow the one I got is more like back and white. Either this book is not original or the publishers have degraded it.

Awesome book, poor printing quality

This 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

Wonderful book

Must read if you want to get down to the basics of design patterns and when and how to apply them.

Good experience and knowledge of OOPS is desirable.
Print quality of the book is good.
Fipkarts service was good and on time delivery in good packing was given

Good book for OO experienced people

If this book needs to be cashed in fully, one should:
(i)Have the skill to represent OO models using UML
(ii)Have good working knowledge of an OO language (Java, C etc)
(iii)Have insights to inheritance, aggregation, composition and general polymorphic behaviour
(iv)Have prior experience in confronting applications that need deep/incisive code changes for small changes in fuctionality.

In spite of the casual approach to presenting the essence of the patterns, this book is not for beginners. In fact OO design itself is not for beginners. Occasionally I have felt the need to re-read th

Its Head First, SE's know it well

Loved 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.
Its not just value for money it is rather more than that. DPs are explained through examples, I already have read them many a times but this book just changed my way of looking at the problems. I am damn sure it will yours too..
My take is 'Just Go For It !!!'
