In the spirit of Dr. Seuss, this video begins,

For such a short video, it has a lot of meat. And I love that last sentence!
But I see mixed reviews of the Kent Beck book that inspired it, Implementation Patterns. Have you read it? Please share your own short review in the comments below.
And if you haven’t read it… what did you think of the video?
