Sorry to slightly deviate from the actual question, but I have been following a couple of recent questions by the poster whose main ambition is to become a successful architect, which is very good.

One wont become a successful architect by just reading books. And there is no single book which can be called a bible (even more so in the context of architecture).

I had exactly similar questions like you and Here's the thing I learnt. Hands-on experience is the only way to become a successful architect. All the rest of the books should be only be used a reference (based on the platform you are working).

So what next.. Get away from the programmer/developer position and take-up an architect's job ( if not senior , atleast a junior role).

Like many other's said, in real world an architect does only 50 to 60% of a real architect role, the rest is soft skills.

Hope that helps.
