I needed to attain TOGAF certification for a client, and this was the book that accompanied the course/exam at the time. As the other reviewer here says, this topic is incredibly dry. This entire framework is non-prescriptive and very high level, coining its own vocabulary seemingly just for the sake of it. During the training course covering this book, there was a universal agreement amongst the delegates that TOGAF is a bureaucratic and meaningless framework that creates paperwork for people in IT with no actual IT skills.

After achieving the TOGAF certification I don't think anyone saw any value in it so we did not apply it - and used common sense instead to achieve success.

This is a paperwork generation framework for people who like to call themselves "Architects" and should be avoided by anyone who actually likes delivering results and engineering real solutions. Despite being several inches thick, this book provides zero meaningful content and should be avoided. A waste of trees and a waste of time!

I am a Software Engineer of some experience and I bought the TOGAF book last year and read it. Subsequently I have attended a training course on TOGAF 9 and believe the course has provided a much easier way of consuming this subject. The sheer volume and dryness of the subject makes it diffuclt to read the book and come away with confidence about the subject.

I would recommend that if you want to read this material then use the On-line version as it's free.

If any of you have any experience of Cap Gemini's IAF then you are essentially doing a subset of TOGAF which does include many more Artifacts and phases throughout the entire lifecycle.

Hope this helps.
