I have been reading through this book over the past few months preparing for part 1 certification (self study) and found the guide to be very good. There are however places where less wording (or breaking out notes from the main text) and more examples would be appropiate, especially due to the formal writing style used.
This material is also freely available on the main TOGAF site, but obviously easier to read on paper/ebook reader.

The standard of documentation and presentation of diagrams etc is very high. It is also nice to have quite a lot of pictures to aid understanding :-)

I would recommend this book for anyone using TOGAF as either a guide or reference, however it is very large so do not expect a brisk read.

A quality hard copy of the TOGAF method - easier to read than endless htm docs or huge pdfs! TOGAF has become the de facto standard for developing enterprise architectures and the latest version (v9) has been expanded to cover the particular needs of packaged systems such as SAP.

Although this publication provides a lot to assimilate, as a reference copy for architects involved in designing strategic business information systems, it is essential.

A good one-stop-shop guide and toolsets for getting your enterprise architecture right. A lot of thought, experience, and funding have gone into this, and the results are well worth the price you pay for the book (and the actual accreditation should you or your organisation wish to go down that route). On embarking on the journey to this structured approach, one needs to carefully determine which components to select and implement first. I would start with the governance. Like other detailed methodologies (quality, architecture, design, and project management) it takes a lot of strong leadership and targeted funding to implement, but then what is the price of getting your enterprise architecture wrong?"

A wealth of information for anyone looking for a foot-hold in Enterprise Architecture. A relatively consistent and comprehensive framework with an associated method for developing the architecture. It is your choice what you include or exclude from the framework and can be mapped to other process frameworks within the organsation. Can highly recommend it but beware that the topic is relatively dry and the authors have tried their best to make it interesting and readable. Mainly though it should be viewed as a reference manual.

This is a very substantial and well written book covering all aspects of the TOGAF methodology. Whether you are studying to get the TOGAF qualification or if you already have it, and are trying to establish/maintain TOGAF in your work place, this book will serve your needs.

Worth a read and much better that paying a few thousand pounds for the course. Learn at your own pace
