You cannot add robustness by adding if statements. It must be designed in from the
beginning. This book is an important contribution to the design of robust software.
--Dennis DeBruler, Lucent Technologies
In this book, Greg really cuts to the core of those elements of software architecture
that I've found to be necessary to build a highly available, highly scalable system.
--Bob Hanmer, Lucent Technologies
Because of the recent debacle in the telecom sector, an entire domain of expertise
is disappearing. Designers who knew about the topics in this book--availability,
reliability, and scalability--have moved on to other things. The void that patterns fill has
never been wider and deeper. I am so thankful that Greg has documented these vital
techniques. The need for them will always be with us, and this book provides us with
a solid reference.

Patterns in Communications Software, and Introducing Patterns into Organizations
