"You should have this book at hand at all times...so whenever you start feeling disheartened, unmotivated or simply bored with what you are doing...you'll look at it's chapters and remember that programming can be fun. That, beyond good and bad parts, beyond best practices and the professional fences with which we surround ourselves, those LEGO sets that we call programming languages, can and should be played with."
