This yet another great read and is a part of the software Engineering Institute's series in Software Engineering. I don't know about anyone else but when I started out wth an interest in software architecture, I was not quite clear on how people did software architecture. I was in the process of reading an architecture text and was struggling to connect all the dots. After some google searches I came upon this book. This book helped me alot by clarifying the Attribute Driven Design process and giving several case studies which featured a range of different kinds of projects. I would definitely recommend this book in terms of examples of real projects and how a systematic design approach such as ADD 3.0 can be applied to real projects!!
