A good book that discusses how to clean up your code. I wasn't expecting the 3rd section of the book discussing the theory of tidying, of when is it the best time, how much to do, etc. I wouldn't consider it a must read, eye opening book, or anything like that but still a nice read. I felt like a good portion of the book points already exist in other literature like Clean Code, the Pragmatic Programmer or similar books and only some parts of the book stands out as unique compared to the more established books.
