I found this book to be generally a disappointment. If you are looking for any in-depth treatment of any content on software architecture, you won't find it here. To be fair, one could probably guess that from the title and the length of the book.

The format of the book is such that each entry takes up 2 pages. However, most entries only need close to 1 page, so much of the book is white space. On the plus side, it's very small and light to take with you on the bus.

If you like reading blog entries that are mostly opinion pieces about the topics around software architecture (including personal communication, teamwork, business challenges, etc.), this might be a really good fit for you. I found that too much of the content is simply common sense.

Of course, our industry isn't the best at always applying common sense, so perhaps some people might find this useful as a gift to their coworkers. I would choose to apply my personal time and money elsewhere.
