Brilliant Book

I just read "The Brand Gap" and thought it a brilliant book. Marty, thanks again for sharing your thoughtful insight and elegant brevity. Straight, focused and contempory views on the theory of branding. I've already sent copies to my several of my colleague and clients.

The best book on pointers I have seen

After reading the reviews, I purchased this book only to be severely disappointed. This book does a poor job explaining casting, pointer to pointers and scaling. The author included a lot of code in the text (and on disk), but very few comments within the code or text. In source 5.6, he has a 1 sentence explanations for 6 pages of code. I read the first 100 pages and that's all I can take. This book stinks!

Highly overrated

This book includes a lot of obvious advice (like keep your designs simple --- the KISS principle), and is lacking in any profound insights about how to make it so. The material on Design by Contract elevates a marginally useful idea to a major breakthrough, which it is not. One wonders whether the authors have much field experience writing large systems.
