This book is very practical which leads (I can confirm) to quick results. I wrote a mini-guide where I use the guidelines to evaluate some of my Python code (blog post with same title as this review). As you see Python, Java (used for thier code samples), it does not matter, with basic coding skills you should be able to follow along.
It's important to note that this book is also a preparation guide for the "Quality Software Developer Foundation Certificate in Maintainability" (via PeopleCert). If you are more of a visual learner, there is an accompanying video course available at O'Reilly.
Anyways, this is recommended reading for any software developer. I give this book 5 stars: it is short but concise, it's very practical in nature, it has clear/easy code examples, and it shows how SIG uses these metrics to evaluate real world software.
Overall great explanations with justifications. A must read for software developers in general.
