Yes, this book is more abstact than applicable. Yes, this book covers general design rather then specific approaches. Yes, this book covers information that is not new. That does not mean this book should not be recommended.
I strongly believe that software engineers need to read more abstract, general books such as this along with the specific, applicable type books. The help keeps us focused on problem solving as opposed to solution techniques. Both are needed to keep us fresh and effective in out roles. Kind of like spring training for baseball players - relearn the game basics and practice the needed skills.
Application Architecture for .NET is one of those books that should be read because the information is technically sound, is relevant to today's computing environment, and provides a solid understanding of designing enterprise level applications. Also, the book is short, direct, and straight-forward ( as a good abstract, general book should be ).

If you want or need a book to provide a concrete approach or a specific solution, no, this book is not for you.
But if you want a book to learn or keep abreast of the direction of current application design and the direction of application architecture, it's worth reading.

Format: Paperback
There's a lot of sensible information and guidelines in this book, but its main problem is that most of it is a bit abstract, and should be known material for experienced developers or architects.
For inexperienced developers or people just starting out on the path of good software architecture, this book may provide some insights, but doesn't offer much practical advice on how to solve concrete problems.
However, it is a pretty good and comprehensive survey of the state of so-called "best practice" of .NET architecture as it looks today, and I didn't encounter much that I couldn't agree with.
As it is a blissfully short book (157 pages including appendices) compared to most books on software development, it may be worth if you need to get a quick overview of the subject. However, the tone is rather dry and condensed, so don't expect those 157 pages to be a light read.

I'm not a Microsoft fan at all. But this book is really helpfull in answering lots of designing questions that arise when trying to design a complex system. It explains, tier by tier, layer by layer, all that has to do with OOD, security, communication, etc.
I'm really happy with this book. Although it has no examples or deep info about anything, it provides lots of links to MSDN articles with the missing info. I strongly recomend it.

This is a good book, but a little dated. there is a version 2.0 out now but was unavailable at the time I bought it. I would recommend to get the newer version since this book does talk about technology that is somewhat old.
