If you have read "Growing Object-Oriented Programs, Guided by Tests", read some of Steve's blogs, or have simply seen some of his code, you will know that Steve has a distinct coding style. He writes a lot of isolated, focused classes that can all be easily tested, and all the components fit together beautifully.
