Written by the so called 'Gang-of-Four', this book brought the idea of software patterns to a wide audience and remains the classic text on the subject. It catalogues twenty-three standard patterns which are used over and over in software development including 'Facade', 'Adapter', 'Factory Method', 'Observer'. An essential book for any serious software developer's library.
