Hi,

When I look at GoF book and present day design patterns (let's say in Wikipedia), I see a difference which is growing
I would like to know does this book cover latest design architectures which covers recent changes in software paradigm.
Also I would love to see a design book which is concise and too the point but should explain the patterns in depth.

Regards,
Anujit

Hi Anujit, it's not a patterns book I'm afraid, and the main reason for this is that there are already many fantastic books out there. I would start with something like "Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture", for example. My book is about the sort of things you need to think about before starting to code. It's about introducing technical leadership through a set of lightweight software architecture practices; including "just enough" up front design, communicating software architecture using a collection of simple sketches and mitigating high priority risks. It's about practices rather than patterns.
