4.0 out of 5 stars Still a good book but no new content in 2nd edition
By Nom Nom on March 16, 2021
I have the "10th Anniversary - Updated for Java 8" (2014) version of this book. I couldn't find any description of what is new in this 2nd edition so I bought it to find out.

The books are practically identical. Flipping through the books side-by-side, the chapters are exactly the same or have only one or two pages with minor differences like a different clipart or page title. I didn't see any new content or code that would be worth an upgrade. Rating 4-stars because it's still a good book for a Java programmer that is new to design patterns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book to learn design patterns ever!
Reviewed in Singapore on July 17, 2021
I struggled for years in my attempt to understand how a pattern came about, how and why it was designed that way and more importantly, how to implement the design and how the implementation works. I just completed reading the first pattern. This is by far the best book to learn design patterns. I would give this 10 stars if I could.
