   Good information that is easy to read!
I hate bronchitis! '' Reading a practical object-oriented design in Ruby was a blast. Sandi still reached my goal, even through my fog of exhaustion. I see objects very differently now and will happily refactor my code to make it better. The only real drawback to the book is Chapter 8's references to Enumerable and Forwardable. I don 't understand them and have probably missed some of the book's goodness. I may get it later. I still give this book a 5 - star buy!

   Great
I wished this was the first book I read before I tried to write any Ruby - Code. My opinion is that this book is really for ruby coders. After reading this book, it changed my thought process for writing bad code and answers to writting new code. A I ran through the book I ran into every tricky, paint yourself in a corner no,no. In our work, we understood the code and why it was so hard to fix. Some of the code I wrote and trashed the correct way. There are 2 coding example errors in the code, but I know Ruby, so I saw them immediately. Still, these errors are a small change ; this book is about understanding OOP concepts.

   A good book for programmers at all levels
I have now programmed in Ruby for a number of years and still found this book of value. I would not recommend it for general beginners, because it assumes knowledge of language, though you learn absolute principles. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of writing good object oriented code, especially in Ruby.

   Useful, approachable, distilled wisdom
This book is aimed at a developer at an intermediate level of skill who wants to master the craft and take it to the next level. In this book, Sandi guides the reader through the process of revealing both the what and the why of object-oriented software design and testing. It was a joy to read and will be something I refer to often as I integrate this wisdom into my own development experience.

   Great resource for novice intermediate OO designer
I have been playing with Ruby for a year, although I took some programming courses while I was in college, never got to use what I learned until I came across Ruby. Very fun for development, reading this book opened my eyes to a whole new world of software engineering.

   One of my favorite programming books in recent years
One of my favorite books on programming in recent years has been in recent years. I have been programming professionally for about 15 years, but I still found the book very enjoyable and read it cover to cover.

   Great book
Uses practical examples to demonstrate OOP in Ruby, loved how it works progressively through each concept to demonstrate the problems they solve.

   A must read if you are into OOD
Sandi is super engaging and manages to get the point across directly, but very effectively.
