4.0 out of 5 stars an interesting book

The article on Architectural Layering provides some useful insights into correlating design and source base suitable for large software systems and aimed at ensuring a high degree of component re-use is facilitated/enabled/employed.
The article on Extreme Frameworking has a nice simplistic model of a version policy that ties into the code management policy and can be used to explain version policy to non-techies.
The Flexible Software Development Process article nicely captures increasing functionality (feature points) of a software product or project over time and how XP adds value to the development process thus enabling closer match to the final requirements.
The team streams article also explains how a source code control system is used (in simplistic terms) to protect a teams development on a 'workspace' (read Branch) from other development activities, and yet to consolidate the various teams development intermittently on the 'team stream' (read Mainline).
