I'm typically frustrated with OOP books that discuss patterns, because they often miss the most important part - how to actually plug this into actual code. For example, in the example of Abstract Factories the author clearly and succinctly explains strategies to create objects on demand within the context of the pattern. And this is where most books leave it - but these classes don't exist in isolation. Something has to make use of them. And how do we do that? What's the best strategy? Big-ass switch statements? More polymorphism?
Well - the author does his best to actually address these issues, and I've found it wholly enlightening. His examples are also very good, being very lightweight and succinct, with clear explanations as to where liberties have been taken for the sake of publishing a book, and what not to do in real life code. Thoroughly recommend this book.
All of my PHP friends/coworkers want to borrow this book.
