Clean Coder, The: A Code of Conduct for Professional Programmers (Robert C. Martin Series) 1st Edition, Kindle Edition
Senior Software Developer
“Some technical books inspire and teach; some delight and amuse. Rarely does a technical book do all four of these things. Robert Martin’s always have for me and The Clean Coder is no exception. Read, learn, and live the lessons in this book and you can accurately call yourself a software professional.”
Senior Program Manager
“If a computer science degree had ‘required reading for after you graduate,’ this would be it. In the real world, your bad code doesn’t vanish when the semester’s over, you don’t get an A for marathon coding the night before an assignment’s due, and, worst of all, you have to deal with people. So, coding gurus are not necessarily professionals. The Clean Coder describes the journey to professionalism . . . and it does a remarkably entertaining job of it.”
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
“The Clean Coder is much more than a set of rules or guidelines. It contains hard-earned wisdom and knowledge that is normally obtained through many years of trial and error or by working as an apprentice to a master craftsman. If you call yourself a software professional, you need this book.”
–R. L. Bogetti
Lead System Designer

From the Back Cover
Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with "Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship." Martin has teamed up with his colleagues from Object Mentor to distill their best agile practice of cleaning code "on the fly" into a book that will instill within you the values of a software craftsman and make you a better programmer-but only if you work at it.
What kind of work will you be doing? You'll be reading code-lots of code. And you will be challenged to think about what's right about that code, and what's wrong with it. More importantly, you will be challenged to reassess your professional values and your commitment to your craft.
"Clean Code" is divided into three parts. The first describes the principles, patterns, and practices of writing clean code. The second part consists of several case studies of increasing complexity. Each case study is an exercise in cleaning up code-of transforming a code base that has some problems into one that is sound and efficient. The third part is the payoff: a single chapter containing a list of heuristics and "smells" gathered while creating the case studies. The result is a knowledge base that describes the way we think when we write, read, and clean code.
Readers will come away from this book understanding
How to tell the difference between good and bad codeHow to write good code and how to transform bad code into good codeHow to create good names, good functions, good objects, and good classesHow to format code for maximum readabilityHow to implement complete error handling without obscuring code logicHow to unit test and practice test-driven developmentThis book is a must for any developer, software engineer, project manager, team lead, or systems analyst with an interest in producing better code.

Side note, there are three books in the series. I strongly recommend buying all 3. Yes i know books of this type are not cheap but you have to decide whether you are serious about coding in a new much clearer and easier way, tidying up old code and just becoming a more constructive programmer. If you take up this option and you should, read them in this order. 1. Clean Code 2. The Clean Coder and 3. The book i have just started, Clean Architecture. You can do it by buying 1 book at a time which is easier on the finances, this is the route i took but either way if your serious about your programming you really need to read this series. Hope this helps.
I liked reading author's personal experiences and how they were extracted into a fine coding wisdom.
The book is not about actual coding best practices such as which design pattern to use for which problem. But it is rather on a human side of the coder. It is like given you already know how to write the clean code for the purpose, now what soft skills / behavioural / personal traits you should focus on for optimal result.
I felt the book was bit short and I only received the small part of what author really wanted to deliver. Looking at Uncle Bob's wealth of experience, I would have enjoyed reading more and more about his war stories at high pace, competition heavy start-ups and corporations.

I was gladly that a lot of the points in this book are the same that I abide on my day to day work, but I've learned the hard way!
This book will be a reference book that I will be sharing with my teams and colleagues without reservations!
Clear and precise with a very down to earth impression. Hopefully this helps me with my degree
Using the old adage 'every day is a school day' was very true of this , it reiterated some long standing principles and has made me revisit some old code to improve it , something I have known I should have done for some time, but never got around to.
This book - is no different. Equally funny as thoughtful; the style is anecdotal but challenging. Given the few chances you get to receive such wisdom and depth from a true master, this is a must for anyone aspiring to become a true craftsman. I learnt a lot from this book - not only that you must not forget how others perceive you as a professional, but also that a true professional knows when to say no. This is one of the subjects I would say the book has a leaning emphasis on; how a professional ought to behave and act in hard times.
No chapter is boring as it is opened with a good story from the life of Robert C. Martin himself, as well as disclosing his past weaknesses for everyone to see - and rightfully so. We must never forget that the journey starts with a step, and lasts until the end of our life.
If you want a book filled to the brim with Wisdom and Laughs. This is the one.
