Written in a frank but engaging style, Debuggingprovides simple, foolproof principles guaranteed to help find any bug quickly. It’s brilliantly laid out for someone new to the discipline, but even if you’re experienced it’s well worth a read for the clarity of the 9 elegant principles the author identifies, and for the many memorable “war stories” he describes from his own engineering career to illustrate them.

The rules are clear, make sense, but they were introduced by A LOT of war stories, most of them related to how you debug hardware problem. His nine common sense rules for successful computer program code and hardware troubleshooting and debugging are applicable to all fields of technical endeavor.

It’s based on the 9 rules which form debuging basis for every debugging process: Interesting to read a methodology around debugging. Fun to read book for all engineers! Useful and applicable methods for debugging. Also, this book recommends that you learn your debugging tools well, so I learned and practiced using PyCharm’s debugger well, which has made a huge difference when I’m debugging Python code.

Common sense backed with a ton of experience. No trivia or quizzes yet. The examples were a bit dated and it helps to understand solid state electronics but the principles are sound.
