In Elegant Objects Vol 1 most chapters have an associated blog post.
I've read the book and as clear by my review, I'm a big fan.
A lot of co-workers and colleagues want to borrow one of my copies. To help give some insight into the contents of the book; I've compiled the links to the blog posts here.

With this post, linking to all of Yegor's posts, it'll give a simpler, quicker, hopefully easier, insight into what Elegant Objects is about.

Chapter 1

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

That's the high level of Elegant Objects Volume 1. I hope this shows how great the book is, or at least can open some discussion around these topics.
