Book Overview

What will you learn from this book?

You know you don't want to reinvent the wheel, so you look to Design Patterns: the lessons learned by those who've faced the same software design problems. With Design Patterns, you get to take advantage of the best practices and experience of others so you can spend your time on something more challenging. Something more fun. This book shows you the patterns that matter, when to use them and why, how to apply them to your own designs, and the object-oriented design principles on which they're based. Join hundreds of thousands of developers who've improved their object-oriented design skills through Head First Design Patterns.

What's so special about this book?

If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. With Head First Design Patterns, 2E you'll learn design principles and patterns in a way that won't put you to sleep, so you can get out there to solve software design problems and speak the language of patterns with others on your team.

   I hate the style of this book
Very chaotic for me, especially to be used as a spot reference instead of reading a book. I'm giving this away because I have read less than 10 pages.

   The book stinks like gasoline or bug spray
The book looks promising, but it smells terrible. It's almost overpowering. It's just that the Beatles are so good at it.

   Great Book!
If you are new to design patterns, this book is for you. But as you go through it things just stay in your head and make the learning of patterns enjoyable. The official definitions of each Pattern are provided by the Gang of Four.

   Fast delivery and recommended book
An IT professional friend recommended this book to me as he told me it was an entertaining way to learn to improve my knowledge of developing software. The book arrived sooner than expected, Mr. O'Neill said.

   Good Introduction to Design Patterns
Very good introduction to design patterns, especially if you have never used them before or are relatively new to some OO principles. The pace is and slow at first, but can get tedious after some time with each nice chapter describing a made up scenario and how someone might approach the problem with a simple solution. Then it shows how this solution has some drawbacks and introduces that chapter's design pattern. That would have made this book a lot more consumable, but I had to force myself to get through the entire thing so I would rate it 4 stars, docking that one star because it was too long. It's a good review, sort of like this review. It's just that I'm not that good at math.

   Still a good book but no new content in 2nd edition
The book has been updated to include Java 8 support. I couldn't find any description of what is new in this second edition, so I bought it to find out. The difference is that the book is almost identical. Flipping through the books, the chapters are exactly the same or have only one or two pages with minor differences, like a different clipart or title page. I didn't see any new content or code that would be worth an upgrade, Raymond said. Still, it's a good book for a Java programmer that is new to creating patterns.

   Great book
There are also a number of books written around C#. Gang of Four members are shown in this photo released by the police.

   Excellent—just don't get the Kindle version
The visuals are what makes this book special, but sadly that doesn't translate well on the Kindle. Buy it in its entirety from Amazon. com.
