Hello to anyone that has read Code Complete by Steve McConnell, would it be wise for a newbie c++ programmer to read this - I mean will this book confuse me or will it be a big help. GameDev says that this is a good read, and I''m looking forward to it. Jeff D

It will certainly give you a lot to think about :-)

I think its a great book and I belive that people of all experience levels can gain a lot by reading it. In fact reading it now before you have gathered too many bad coding habits is probably a really good idea.

The binding is crappy though - I''ve only read my copy twice, and it''s already fallen to pieces.



"I know very well who Satan is: He is freedom. He is the uncontrolled, the incalculable, the antithesis of order and discipline, the antithesis of the legalism of outer space.... We know where a planet will be in twelve years, four months and nine days. But we don''t know where a butterfly will have flown one minute hence. Therefore the butterfly is of Satan."
