Its not a Buzz for sure. Refactoring is just a neat name, which
developers have been doing for years. Its common among developers to
rework on their code bases. Have a better implementation for the same
function. Nothing to do with a Programming Language. Its a nice read
and recommended read for person dealing in Object Oriented Programming
on a daily basis with C++, Java. Python itself does not restrict you
to know OOPS to solve problems in python. To swear by a book,
methodology . Refactoring Book is not up there.  Not sure if the Book
got an update, It was a almost a decade ago since I read it.  The only
folks who made statements like that were freshers from Throatworks :P
