Book Review: The Phoenix Project. Gene Kim

The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win.

Entertaining and instructive. The cult novel for the DevOps movement. It have a very ops related point of view, but is also very interesting for the software development, in fact, nowadays there is no so much difference.

Great book with lots of information on the development of Lean and DevOps software and great lessons on how to implement it.
I'm not used to this format for a highly technical book, but I must admit that a novel is a very good way to remember the concepts (and even, to empathize with the characters).

Recommended for anyone in a business with a strong technology base (almost every business today).

Very funny, entertaining... A must...

Book Review: How Google Works. Eric Schmidt

This book contains some interesting facts about how Google, as a company, works, but IMHO only the first half is interesting, the rest is a bit repetitive.

The book contains many anecdotes, but many of them are not interesting or simply repeat a concept already discussed previously.

Entertaining but I have not learned as much as intended.
