In the book when discussing examples volatile vs stable dependency is mentioned often in the specific context, but never really defined. Could the authors consider adding a definition for it?

The concepts of Stable Dependencies and Volatile Dependencies are defined in sections 1.3.1 and 1.3.2.

My apologies for the brain fart on my side. I am on and off reading through the book and I forgot I read the chapter content. When I tried to search the book for definition I used the term Volatile dependency and that caused me to miss the chapter 1.3.2 Volatile dependencies. smilie

If you're not reading the book from cover to cover, the glossary will come in handy. It will be located in the back of the book and will point you to the page where terms are defined.

One caveat though, it could be that the current MEAP of the second edition doesn't have a glossary smilie The final print will, obviously, contain a glossary that lists all important concepts. There will also be a Glossary Conceptual Map inside the front cover that shows a subset of the glossary list that visualizes their relationship with one another.
