    Sometimes useful, sometimes debatable There are some good tips in here that should be on evrey developer s mind as they write However some tips are common sense and others should be taken with a grain of salt.

    I like the Head First series, and even Head Rush, for its innovative and fun approach for introductory software topics I ve had small concerns on all of them but I have never been as ambivalent as I have for this book I know a big part of this problem was that it was rewritten expeditious I am still not sure of the reason why and it shows throughout the book with spelling, logic and code errors.You can tell that the first chapter was rushed There are several spelling and programming mistake I like the Head First series, and even Head Rush, for its innovative and fun approach for introductory software topics I ve had small concerns on all of them but I have never been as ambivalent as I have for this book I know a big part of this problem was that it was rewritten expeditious I am still not sure of the reason why and it shows throughout the book with spelling, logic and code errors.You can tell that the first chapter was rushed There are several spelling and programming mistakes The most egregious is where they ask you to look through some code to find what FIRST you change and then they answer that question with a much smaller problem the main problem was they forgot to add a return statement pg.5 and they write about the inconsistency of using String based searching It has also been mentioned by several reviewers of the use of the method name matches which only makes sense for regex not for an equals operation I also did not like the search example how can you not think of price in a search The best part of this chapter is the mantra that should be practiced by many engineers Make sure your software does what the customer wants it to do The next few chapters are definitely better though still some spelling mistakes They are a good read for beginners and intermediate programmers on gathering requirements, change of these requirements and analysis The ideas are a bit simplistic though it is good to get many programmers used to the idea of UML and use cases and using them to drive requirement gathering and textual analysis Intermediate and advanced readers familiar with use cases will gainfrom reading Alistair Cockburn s Writing Effective Use Cases or will already have read it and for further UML reading should go with UML Distilled by Martin Fowler.When the book gets back to design I see some problems with the coding The designer has this bizarre idea of abstracting all properties under the guise of encapsulate what varies into a Map attribute to lessen the amount of subclasses for instruments While initially this may seem a good idea it gets rid of all type safe coding you can now safely assign an instrument type to a backwood for the instrument , you cannot have behavior from the instruments this is mentioned in the book and if you put a property with one letter misspelled or capitalized out of place you now have a bug, one that you might have trouble finding thereby increasing maintenance costs Too much flexibility makes the code ambiguous.After design, the studies get to solving really big problems, architecture, design principles, and iterating and testing These chapters I enjoyed muchespecially the chapter on design principles with the beginning mantra that Originality is Overrated This chapter goes over basic principles such as OCP open closed principle , DRY don t repeat yourself , SRP single responsibility principle and LSP Liskov Substitution Principle.Then the book last chapter the ooad lifecycle sums the lessons in the book in one large somewhat contrived but these type of examples always are program for the Objectville Subway Then two terse appendixes dealing with ten additional OOAD topics and OO concepts should make the reader realize that this book is just an introductory sliver of what needs to be learned for a sagacious software acumen.This book is useful for programmers with a bit of Java or C knowledge who want to get a good overview of OOAD This book is useful because it teaches important OO vernacular and a simple holistic approach to iterative development If the book did not have a quickly done feeling, better design and fewer mistakes I would have liked this bookThis book is a good candidate for a second edition If you want athorough explanation of these topics I recommend The Object Primer by Scott Ambler as one of my favorite books for a good introduction to OOAD

    Head First Object Oriented Analysis and Design tries to cover most of the Object Oriented principles and paradigms in a completely non boring way It is a good starting point to think about software in terms of objects and classes.

    Very practical , reads like a novel My style of writing , if I were to write a book

    I started the book a long time time, got to the 80 85% pretty quickly it s a quick read and left the book for a very loooong time until now.All in all, It s a nice book on Object Oriented design and analysis , though most of my reading I felt like the book tries to explain things to a 10 years old kid It tries to convey the principles of OO, though I think it could have been much better in a shorter book Some OO tutorials and stackoverflow provide a better source for that topic.3.5 5

    The book is very well written and covers many basic aspects of analysis and design of software from the beginner s point of view One of the plus points is due to the reason that apart from the regular analysis and design, this book also discusses other important aspects of software development such as being customer centric and managing risk to name a few However, some of the readers may find the pace of the book as slow as it really hammers a point down to its details Highly recommend thi The book is very well written and covers many basic aspects of analysis and design of software from the beginner s point of view One of the plus points is due to the reason that apart from the regular analysis and design, this book also discusses other important aspects of software development such as being customer centric and managing risk to name a few However, some of the readers may find the pace of the book as slow as it really hammers a point down to its details Highly recommend this book especially to engineers who are in nascent stages of their career

    It s an OK book The writing style is not my cup of tea it tries too hard to simplify things to a point where it becomes difficult to focus on the original concept take OO for instance But I would recommend the title for beginners.
