I like this style as well. Not only for the readability but also because it better reflects what the code is doing - it's making several tests whether it can safely go ahead with whatever action it's going to perform or if something's wrong and it should fail.

I hate it when if ... else ... if ... else ...... is used instead because it can confuse you by suggesting branching where there is none.

There is sufficient light for those who desire to see, and there is sufficient darkness for those of a contrary disposition.
Blaise Pascal
