Thanks to Dave, the book might be a must-read for me indeed as I work often with roles between Sr. developer and architect recently.
Yes, I hope to become a decent architect, however, I've seen myself not only the language barrier, but also other certain things to improve in many aspects.
Hope the book could help and put me on the right track to move on.

Welcome Dave!
I went through the TOC; it's an awesome collection of non-tech skills which high tech guys generally overlook and these are mostly the difference b/n a successful and an average architect...hats off to you for collecting and bringing such topics to the light for architects.
