One of the best DevOps books out there.
This is not like any technical books where it will tell you the problem and then take you through the steps on how to solve the issue. It is written in a narrative style, more like a story, explaining the day to day problems that a company's IT departments have to deal with and based on this the main character together with his colleagues tries to solve those issues, however, this doesn't work as planned, until he meets Erik, which will help the main character, understand the DevOps culture and not only, understand what goes wrong, why is going wrong and how to better manage, plan and solve those issues.
Moreover, this book also describes the importance of the Development and Operation teams working together in order to help the business accomplishing its goals, which includes, but not limited to: deployment automation, servers (environments) provisioning, code testing and security implementation.
This book is a good read not just for DevOps engineers as myself, but also for people who would like to understand more about DevOps (be it entry level or advanced) as well as CTOs and CEOs as this will give them a good understanding on how critical the IT department is to a business and by understanding what the business goals are and how IT impacts those goals.
