Author(s) : David M. Dikel, David Kane, James R. Wilson You might ask if a book devoted to Organizational Principles and Patterns on Software Architecture is really necessary. I didn�t think so until I read this book! I quickly found myself nodding as I recognized patterns from the book that we practiced at work. I was also alarmed at the number of Anti-Patterns we have as well. This gives me a goal and guidance to help guide things, hopefully, along a successful path. Besides my enlightenment, the book mainly covers the VRAPS Principle (Vision, Rhythm, Anticipation, Partnering and Simplification Patterns) with real world case studies from organizations such as Allaire. An extreme amount of research went into the production of this book. The result is obvious. Any company producing software should make reading this book mandatory for their Managers, Architects and Developers (Carl Trusiak - Sheriff, November 2001) More info at Amazon.com More info at Amazon.co.uk More info at FatBrain.com
