I would highly recommend it to all the budding and practising architects in the field. Also, unlike books on technology, words of wisdom and experience rarely get outdated, so expect it to hold value through years to come.
The key here is quick. None of the "articles" are more than 2 pages long. This book is interesting in that it is 97 small articles which provides for a quick read. With the vast amount of technical books that I purchase (and mostly read) I liked the fact that I could get through this book in a reasonable amount of time and pickup some gems or reminders.
I read this from the beginning and basically read the title and the last 1 or 2 paragraphs of each article. If I found the article's summary intriguing I would invest in the entire article.
Some of the articles seem a bit contradictory but you should read the ones that make sense and disregard the rest. So was it worth the price? I believe so. Remember even the smallest amount of eduction/enlightenment is valuable.
