In order to properly understand a field, a researcher has to first understand the accumulated knowledge of that field. Micro-architectural design has accumulated knowledge elements that are clearly defined. These elements, such as design patterns, are properly differentiated and generally understood, but other elements -- such as heuristics, best practices, and others -- are just vague concepts.

Object-Oriented Design Knowledge: Principles, Heuristics and Best Practices provides a unified and global vision about the lesser-defined areas of micro-architectural design knowledge, exposing the main techniques, experiences, and methods in order to help researchers apply these concepts. Understanding the experiences presented in this book will help readers correctly apply design knowledge.
