Discussion on: Why I can't recommend Clean Architecture by Robert C Martin

The essence of Clean Architecture would have fit nicely into a single, albeit maybe somewhat lengthy, blog post.

The filling material which makes up about 70-80% of the book, is also not per se of bad quality. It mostly reiterates rather basic concepts, but I'd qualify it, depending on the how experienced a reader is, as too shallow for an in-depth treatment or too bloated for a high-level overview. And the unavoidable morale tales from Bob Martins projects are also entertaining, but I personally don't seek entertainment in software engineering books.

I think, it can be worth skimming, but I don't consider it an essential read.

Nice summary, Fabian.

I had the same idea about the book fitting into a long blog post but it didn't make it into the final version of my post.
