Easy to read and down to earth in most chapters. You should read this book if you are trying to find elegant solutions to problems addressed by Software Architectures. I think that no Software Engineers should venture on designing and writing Enterprise Software without reading this book. Supported by what the authors wrote I found gratifying the exercise of identifying the problem space and the strategies and software patterns that were used to solve such problems.
