Hi Richard I would add CODE COMPLETE by steve McConnell as well but rapid development from memory is a shorter read.
Update I decided to look on amazon rather than my library and I was right 674 pages instead of over 950 .. so shorter is relative and I find it’s not on kindle. You can find it easily on the usual sites (I won’t link to it to spare blushes). I always like to have a pdf of any book I have in print ... much easier when going on holiday. Many’s the time I purchase a dead trees version from amazon and if it’s not prime I purchase the kindle edition as well to read while it arrives.
