While you won't leverage this text in a vaccum, you will have the confidence to truly speak and evaluate API Solution Architecture like a pro. True to the title, it focuses on the design concepts and solution building blocks. Construction details are for other volumes
I give this 3 stars because1. It has no worked example APIs at all. All theory.2. Feels like an extract from a PhD thesis, not a book.3. It doesn't mention the role of HATEOAS in API architecture.4. It does intelligently breakdown an API Architecture into the Development, Runtime and Engagement platforms. This is a good idea.5. It actually mentions somewhere that an externally facing API is ultimately a company's product. This is an advanced concept for non-technical people.Otherwise, it's a good basic overview of API Architecture, but that's all.
Great book. As a 25 year techie, I enjoy concise and practical technical docs, this is one !
This is purely a theoretical book, it talk about design to an extent, but no implementation details. There are no details on how to break a product down into APIs. Basics are covered well, but advanced concepts seems skipped.
This book is crap. It's simply a general overview light on any substance.
