Design Patterns is a modern classic in the literature of object-oriented development, offering timeless and elegant solutions to common problems in software design. It describes patterns for managing object creation, composing objects into larger structures, and coordinating control flow between objects. The book provides numerous examples where using composition rather than inheritance can improve the reusability and flexibility of code. Note, though, that it's not a tutorial but a catalog that you can use to find an object-oriented design pattern that's appropriate for the needs of your particular application--a selection for virtuoso programmers who appreciate (or require) consistent, well-engineered object-oriented designs.
This book isn't an introduction to object-oriented technology or design. Many books already do a good job of that...this isn't an advanced treatise either. It's a book of design patterns that describe simple and elegant solutions to specific problems in object-oriented software design....Once you understand the design patterns and have had an "Aha!" (and not just a "Huh?" experience with them, you won't ever think about object-oriented design in the same way. You'll have insights that can make your own designs more flexible, modular, reusable, and understandable--which is why you're interested in object-oriented technology in the first place, right? -- From the Preface
This is one of the best written and wonderfully insightful books that I have read in a great long while...this book establishes the legitimacy of patterns in the best way: not by argument, but by example. -- C++ Report

Extremely useful - literally chock full of great ideas and well-tested, proven patterns that work. A classic that any developer should consider a standard go-to reference.
The uses for the ideas and patterns in this book are virtually unlimited. Clearly great design, made easily available and usable.
In this book, the authors laid a foundation for large-scale assembly-based IT approaches. I successfully used their guidance to assemble new IT solutions, beginning with components and services. In recent years, I focused on applying the assembly-based approach to IT capabilities and business capabilities to achieve greater IT flexibility and business agility.
This book remains as applicable today as when it was first published. If you are responsible for architecting, designing, constructing, testing, or managing new IT solutions, you must have this valuable reference book. I've recommended this book to many colleagues. I am very please to recommend it now.
