"Good Collection of Best Practices!" - by Ali on 23-SEP-2012
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
I think this book (actually a collection of tips and practical guidance) from various professionals in the field, is a good reference.

For many software architects, like me, the tips in this book will serve to remind the characteristics of successful software architecture practices.

I intend to keep this as one of my Swiss Kit items.
