"This book isn't dependent on any single technology-rather, it provides a way to integrate the best, most efficient techniques from a variety of programming methodologies and presents to the reader a clearer view of how and when to use each technique. This book is a cohesive presentation of concepts and strategies which make complex software designing and programming look easy. It thoroughly conveys the keys to gaining complete control of systems and development efforts - for every role, and from novices to veterans.
The author designed this book to thoroughly convey the thinking which makes complex software development look easy, regardless of which technologies are used. This book is meant not just to reveal several fundamentally more effective ways of viewing software and its development, but to pass on an even more fundamental "feeling" for systems. These concepts are the keys to the best overall systems, especially given that a single application can integrate multiple platforms and languages.
Moreover, this book also helps to optimize the reader's ability to simply figure out things, new and old. It makes even the classic books much simpler and easier to understand, explicitly providing the cohesion and intuition which they don't. Iterating Infusion is truly one of a kind. And it's the kind of book which directors would require their entire department to read.

Iterating Infusion: Clearer Views of Objects, Classes, and Systems is a one-of-a-kind book, not dependent on any single technology. Rather, it provides a way to integrate the most efficient techniques from a variety of programming methods, in a manner that makes designing and programming software look easy.
Iterating Infusion presents comprehensive tools for you to best manage and work with object orientation. These include simplified fundamental concepts, popular language comparisons, advanced designing strategies, a broad usage progression, thorough design notations (interaction algebra), and data-oriented (fundamentally-OO) languages.
The title, Iterating Infusion, alludes to the fact that any system has multiple, coexisting functional levels and that new levelsboth lower and higherare continually added to the same functional area. The practical effect is to bring processes into focus, always clarifying the vague. The extreme form of this is when separate but compatible technologies are brought together to create advancements; these can be baby-steps or great leaps, with varying amounts of effort. In more general terms, the same thing in a different context can take on much more power. And actually, this phenomenon is at the heart of object-oriented software.
Readers have been confirming that, compared to books on just low-level details, Iterating Infusion presents cohesive insights that allow you to solve more problems with the same effort in more key places.
