"Spinellis and his co-editor Georgios Gousios have done a good job of selecting interesting essayists and of putting their works together into a collection that feels solid. Reading it will certainly make you think more about your own project's architecture...Whether it's something you're building on the weekends or on the job, Beautiful Architecture will certainly do your code base good."
