This might be a good book, but I can't tell because I don't have a spare scanning electron microscope handy to read the tiny, miniscule, nano-sized, infitesimally small fonts, especially in the diagrams and tables. I have other "pocket" books such as O'Reilly pocket guides which are not like this. There's nothing wrong with my eyesight, but this gives me a headache. Unreadable.

Anyway - the attraction of a "pocket guide" is simply that it is a condensed summary of a certain subject; you don't particularly need to put it in your pocket, so why not just make a normal sized book that's readable?

I'm reviewing the paper version, but I notice that on Amazon USA, both the reviews of this book complain about the Kindle version's unreadable diagrams and tables saying "All the diagram is just too small and when zoom in the diagram, you still cannot see it clearly because of its low resolution."

This little book has helped me to promote TOGAF to management by showing that one doesn't need spend months studying to get an appreciation of The Open Group's Architectural Framework (and as a side this compares very favourably with the Prince 2 study manual). Of course all the necessary content is in there and every architects desk should have a copy of this book to promote awareness of TOGAF. That said the diagrams are small so perhaps print out the main ones from the web to hang on the wall, using the book as the textual reference.

I found this to be a very good companion to other material I had on TOGAF. You can read through the whole thing pretty quickly, and I reckon the information in here covered about 85-90% of the TOGAF part 1 (Foundation) exam.

Great Knowledge base and am Still reading but so far so good. I will ready at least 3 times before attempting the exam hpowever, the test questions included provide useful insights and good test of knowledge of the concepts. Really really useful.

Great, simple and easy to read. Graphic's are not necessarily great in Kindle format (especially if you have an older version of the kindle)

Really good guide covering TOGAF, the diagrams are fine although some may find them small and hard to read with poor eyesight.

Text is small, I accept its a pocket book, but many pocket books are fine, this one was not planned correctly
