Still superb after all these years
This book, along with two others by the likes of Ed Yourdon and Larry Constantine, gave me tools I haved used regularly for nearly 30 years now. Today I am helping a younger colleague regain control of an out-of-control project by passing on to him some fundamental principles of system design that are outlined in this book. I came here to Amazon to see if this book was even still available. Now I'm going to suggest to my colleague that he return here and buy it before another day on the project "slips" by.

Best book ever written !!!
Yes, I would personally rate this as of the best book ever written on the subject of design.
I read this book many years ago and it inspired me to build robust systems and enjoy my career in Information Technology. I treasure this book. Even today, I can evaluate a design by applying basic principles outlined in this book.
This book is equal to the classic "The Mythical man-Month".

An old friend
I have been making my life (and my family's) as a programmer for more than 15 years, in three countries (Cuba, Spain and USA) and two languages (regular Spanish and bad English).
I read this book about 12-14 years ago, and it taught me more about programming than any other document. For the pleasure of do it, I translated it from English to Spanish, believe or not: hand written, after hours during several months, in the early 90s. I (believe) still have these papers and the book with me, regardless the many places, cities and countries where I have spent the last 12 years. I'll check when get home tonight. I'm working right now, and suddenly, this book came to my mind. So, I jumped into Amazon to search it and I liked to see the rate of the book and how another (intelligent) people wrote about it.
