We recently published a small book to be used as an easy way to get into Systems Oriented Design. It was written by Jonathan Romm, Adrian Paulsen, both from HALOGEN, and me. Published by the Oslo School of Architecture and Design. Together with Elisabeth Skjeltens book, Complexity and Other Beasts they form a pair that we hope will be valuable in practicing SOD.
Bot books can be ordered at AHO.no while Complexity can also be bought here http://www.complexityandotherbeasts.com
