5.0 out of 5 stars A great book to simplify life of application architect, 1 Feb 2003
If you are an experienced application architect/designer ... you'll probably learn very little new from this book. All patterns described here have been mentioned somewhere else, and has been used for many years. What you will get though is a common vocabulary and very precise and wonderfully written explanations what each term exactly means.
So how this book is to simplify my life? For every new/replacement developer on the project, instead of many pages long architecture document, I'm handling a 1 page summary that uses patterns names from Martin's book along with the book itself and it works beautifully :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, but too C++ centric, 5 Nov 2002
Reading this book was real pleasure, but it seemed to me that only half of it was applicable in general, the rest was dealing with C++ specific issues.
I would still recommend this book however, even to Java programmers. Just skip the discussion about Singleton destruction problems :)
