Tal Cohen's Bookshelf: A Collection of Personal Opinions about Books

''Another part is aimed for pattern writers, rather than users. Sadly, these is no clear separation between these two aspects of the book.'' This may be because there is not clear distinction in life. No one writes a pattern without having used them, in fact the act of writing a pattern is predicated upon unsuccessful attempt at use.

Perhaps I was imprecise. Of course every developer who (knowingly) uses patterns also creates his own patterns at times. What I've meant is that some sections of the book are aimed at those developers who also attempt to document their patterns, with the aim of publishing the result. This certainly does not include the vast majority of developers.
