this discussion should go hand in hand with refactoring and function naming because that's really what is behind a lot of what's being discussed here.
Messy code needs a lot of comments to make it obvious what it does, the opposite is also true.

It does go with functions, formatting, unit tests, etc... in the original book.

This article is kind of a dump of the comments chapter, without the whole context of the book.
