Read full description of the books:
This is a difficult subject: how much effort should I put into modeling my software architectures and what exactly should be modeled? When do I stop?
Mr. Fairbanks gave it a good shot and he was honest as well. He can't take away the most difficult part: using your brains. His vision of focusing on the risks seems very viable, be it risks on the quality attributes (performance, security, availability etc) or the functionality.
The approach in the book was a practical one. The models of the architecture are not created before you know what they're used for; that's a good advice and even the caveats were provided.
I can recommend this book to all software engineers with some experience (> 2 years); enough that they know the difficulty of working with medium to large sized code bases. Modeling your architecture is there to help you think and make decisions on how to produce software; it's useful to understand why we would even bother documenting that which is already expressed as code. That's why I wouldn't recommend this book to a newbie: he probably wouldn't appreciate the advice. Just like the advice in Software Architecture in Practice (Bass, Len et al) was lost on me when I first read it with less than a year of practical experience.
