Amazon.com recommends….

Yesterday morning I get an email from Amazon.com with the following subject:

Amazon.com recommends "Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship" and more

containing the latest product recommendations from Amazon for me.  After I skim it, I realize I have to go back and give it a deeper look.  After that second pass, I can’t help but laugh at their book recommendations for me:

  • Clean Code: A Handbook of Agile Software Craftsmanship – Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob)
  • Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code – Martin Fowler
  • Working Effectively with Legacy Code – Martin Feathers
  • Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests – Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce
  • Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture – Martin Fowler

Now looking at that book list, you may be wondering what prompted me to laugh at those recommendations, well I own and have read them all.  Time to go update Amazon.com as marking that I own all of them, and see what new recommendations it has for me.
