Felt compelled to do a preliminary review on Amazon, while I work on the full one for the blog here. I’ve given it 4 out of 5 stars, but I admit I tend to be a real hard ass. I would expect a 5 only for those books I come away from inspired. It’s a very good book, and it builds a fantastic foundation, but… it’s just missing that something that makes it a superstar. It’s a book that I’d use as a reference for time to come, and has gotten me thinking, but don’t suspect I’ll be quoting it in meetings (like I did for another book I reviewed, Todd Biske’s SOA Governance book).
I should say, 4 is excellent. 4 is a book I’d wish I’d written myself, and carry around with me until I finish it because it’s so useful.
