Just Enough Software Architecture

At the beginning, George Fairbanks declares that this book is different from other books about software architecture because it teaches risk-driven architecting, it democratizes architecture, it cultivates declarative knowledge, it emphasizes the engineering and it provides practical advice. I am not an expert in software architecture books, but I would say that these objectives are fairly achieved.
