"It's rare that I read nonfiction these days that is worth reviewing. Most nonfiction to me simply consists of reference material, examples, and step-by-step instructions to help in a given field of study. As a software engineer, I often find myself digging into a particular book for an example or a hint as to how to implement a piece of code. But only rarely do I find myself reading a book from cover to cover. Pragmatic Thinking & Learning: Refactor Your Wetware is one heck of an exception."
--Brian Fitzpatrick, Blogcrititcs Magazine
