IT Knowledge Exchange interviewed Norman Matloff about The Art of Debugging with GDB, DDD, and Eclipse. Read the interview here!
The Art of Debugging with GDB, DDD, and Eclipse "is intermediate to a glorified user's manual and an abstract treatise on the cognitive theory of the debugging process. The authors provide information on the 'how-to' for specific commands in the tools, but they also set forth and make frequent use of some general principles for the debugging process."

"Most of the examples in The Art of Debugging with GDB, DDD, and Eclipse are in line with the theory and bring out the concepts clearly. There is the repeated comparison of usage of the three debugging tools for the same example so that the reader can draw their own conclusions and grow on their own favorite debugging tool."
