Simson Garfinkel ´ 7 charactersVery fun book to read full of truth in my opinion I have been in programming world for some time and when I was in college all we were taught was the things that are being described as basically worst ways of thinking about software This is why we have not seen good progress in software for a ong time other than few companies made
