There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
To me it was a waste of time. They came straight to the point in The DevOps handbook as compared to this novel.
Starting from requirements phase, we cut corners in our processes and that makes us fall into trouble.
Great read and would recommend everyone to read it once.
This book takes a show not tell approach as it maps out 'A day in the life of an CIO' superbly, bringing forth the challenges. It takes us thorough a journey of discovery that culminates in DevOps.
I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling to understand the DevOps movement. Especially to the non techie sales and marketing folks.
This is not a O'Reilly series, it doesn't tell you How? But it slams WHY into your soul with brute force. Enjoy the ride & may you drive down the Third way ... Fast!
The author puts the fundamentals on the table with a story to which every IT person can easily relate to.
Go for this book if you want to learn about DevOps and if you want to enjoy while you are at it.

With these realistic problems that no doubt face most of us the Pheonix Project lays out a number of tools and approaches that will lead the reader to think "damn, that's a good idea" or "that's an amazing way of looking at it". There's a moment in the book (I got it on kindle first, but now I have a physical copy that's getting the highlighter treatment) where one of the executives more or less goes "well dur well done you've figured it out" to which another goes, "well why didn't you think to explain this to everyone?" we often assume that the obvious is obvious to everyone, it's like a person watching poker on TV who can see everyone's cards going "well that outcome was obvious" clearly it wasn't to the people playing who couldn't see the cards.
All in all this book should be a must-read for everyone in IT or work with IT, it sets out the groundwork for implementing lean principles in IT and I wish I'd read it years ago. To be honest I think anyone with aspirations to help improve workflow through an organisation should read this, and the Goal and then sit down and think about the lessons presented within.
I'm not depressed at all, no I'm fine. Really. Thanks. *inaudible weeping*
The story follows the life of the newly promoted IT Manager who is tasked with solving these problems and while tackling the issues he learns about DevOps. I found the book itself to be a very entertaining read and the concepts introduced both made sense withing the context of the story and reflect the real world issues a lot of us face as well.
The book does have a somewhat "accelerated" rate of adoption within the company, most real world scenarios would probably take considerably longer and be much more of a struggle with considerable more meeting - however I doubt many people who be enthralled by that. The story pacing certainly benefits from this approach.
The comparisons between IT and a typical manufacturing plant makes understanding the concepts underlying DevOps easier than speaking about them in the usual IT language.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who works in an IT / DevOps environment and wants an enjoyable read that also helps with the daily job.
From the frantic mess of the SAN upgrade (apparently) fighting the Payroll run in the opening section (we've all been there, done that, got the tee shirt <that is, if we are to be really honest with ourselves, folks, eh?>), to Brent and his knowledge of everything, with nothing documented.......
I grimaced at the developer who'd had to do a rushed change that broke, gone on holiday, and no-one knew. We all know that one.....
Its a gripping read, though understanding the mindset of Erik the guru is hard at times, and I'd have liked a little more domestic background.
I strongly recommend this book to all the IT professionals, IT students and other interested people in IT and would like to learn many things regarding IT industry.
