Head First Software Architecture
Chapter 2: Architectural Characteristics

In this live Q&A-driven podcast we talk about the second chapter of Head First Software Architecture, and take a detailed look at what we call architectural characteristics (what some people call non-functional requirements), including how to define them, identify them, categorize them, and unravel the complexity of composite architectural characteristics (things like reliability and agility).
