This is where Structured Design comes in. It forces you to think first and program later. This is probably the reason why it fell out of favor with the script kiddy generation in the late 90's and 2000's. Structured Design needs a few modern elements though to cope with programming techniques that didn't really exist in the 80's, primarily exceptions which contradict the principle of SD, as well as derivation of structures/records (which is NOT identical to OOD), but I think it is possible to extend the design philosophy accordingly.

This book is an eye opener. I used to dabble in top down design in the 80's and early 90's whilst being a hobby programmer. Later, during my professional life I was sucked into Object Oriented programming and design and I believed this was the way it is, although it always felt awkward.

I don't want to go into all the details regarding criticism of OOD. You can find enough articles on the net yourself. For my part, I concluded that Structured Design is not obsolete by any means and I bought this book and the one by Page-Jones to get into this field. OOD is something for the code monkey. It's easy to start writing an application without too much planning, since "objects" are so natural for all of us that it is easy to design them, right? Yes, but after a while the development leads inevitably into a swamp and you get stuck halfway to the finish line.

This is where Structured Design comes in. It forces you to think first and program later. This is probably the reason why it fell out of favor with the script kiddy generation in the late 90's and 2000's. The more I read this book, the more I am convinced that it is a true gem. It explains Structured Design for the non academic person and enables access to it due to it's clear language and the way all thoughts and conclusions are laid out in an elaborate way.

Structured Design needs a few modern elements though to cope with programming techniques that didn't really exist in the 80's, primarily exceptions which contradict the principle of SD, as well as derivation of structures/records (which is NOT identical to OOD), but I think it is possible to extend the design philosophy accordingly.

My advice for everybody who is not satisfied with today's toy languages like C++, Java, Ruby etc: Get this book and learn REAL programming. Forget UML. This is the way to go. It will just cost you a lot of sweat, but it is worth it.

I bought this book for a specific presentation I needed to do at work. People get wrapped up in technology, and forget the basic ideas put forth for structured decomposition and design are the basis that most all of todays latest and greatest ideas are based on.

I suggest reading this book for anyone intrested in designing reliable, maintainable programs.

Also, I bought this book used. It was well worn, but I don't mind. I saved a lot of money, and the words inside are the same on an expensive book, or on a cheap book.

Good book to understand structured design. Seller did a very fast shipping.

As a retired CIS professor and computer professional, Ed Yourdon and DeMarco were the gurus decades ago in structured techniques -including Data Flow Diagrams. This book is a classic!

The best book on software design prior to the PC revolution. It is a timeless work by some of the greatest in the field. This is a review of the book not any particular seller. I thought that the 2 star for a damaged book delivery and then going out to buy it from somewhere else only proves the book is more than two stars in the buyers eyes.

Arrived damaged so I returned it and bought it elsewhere.
