That's why I originally avoided the book, my opinion based only on the title. I later picked it up based on monk recommendations, and it turned out to be much better than I expected.

It wasn't do this, do that; It was "most do this, here's why. This is contentious, and some people do that, it's important to make a choice and be consistent." I don't follow everything in PBP, but I learned a fair amount from it and it make me examine my own practices.

[ambrus]: That's what some of the "Black Friday" sales are about.

[ambrus]: Corion: ah. that's different. the ones I mean are selling at reputable sites like ebay that usually filters scammers out pretty quickly (as well as filters a lot of legitimate users who then get annoyed that the biggest providers exclude them)
