I fought this book. There is really no better way to put it. It is a difficult read, but not because of its depth or complexity (which it has in spades), but because of poor execution. Bear overreached, and failed.
One of the websites my company created and continues to manage is Architecture & Governance Magazine, a community site with several hundred articles on something called Enterprise Architecture. They recently asked us if we knew how to create an eBook out of their monthly PDF of their new articles. "Not a clue!" I said, resisting the urge to lie.
