Book Review: Working Effectively With Legacy Code by M Feathers

Although this book's code examples are in C++ and othe languages that are not PHP, which is the code that I mainly work in, it is an excellent book that provides a lot of food for thought in how to deal with 'Legacy Code' and how to make improvements and add features to old code in a way that can be tested and not send a trail of destruction through out your code.
I actually even recommend this book if you aren't working on a Legacy system but your starting a fresh project of a decent size and haven't got much experience then this book will save you a lot of time and money as you are likely to see what mistakes to avoid before you make them.
