The book is full of humor and literally makes you LoL every now and then. A great example is the term "Feet of Enterprise Architecture". Try guessing that does it denote? The humor makes it very east to ingest and internalize the knowledge which this book is full of.
Great analogies. Analogies are good when trying to explain something but software industry is cursed with bad and horrible analogies. The ones Gregor uses are supreme. Example? Comparing architect role to movie characters. Yes, you'll find Matrix there.
Deep insights. Many people use the building architecture -- IT architecture parallel but Gregor actually cares to tear this analogy apart and put it back again to show what a good architecture document should and (more importantly) should not contain.
Invaluable are parts dealing with leadership, decision making and systems thinking.
Once caveat though: before you open the book prepare to change most of your current opinions on the software architecture. You have been warned!
