An IT person would be influenced by Jeff’s approach to delivery of services and people outside of IT would gain an understanding of the above mentioned subject matter and the relationship they have with IT or development in general.
Michener’s books always left me with a feeling to learn more about a subject. Though, I am not ready to compare him to Michener; Jeff left me with a similar feeling. I wanted to learn more about the subjects he wrote about. It is one of the best compliments; I can give an author.
The writing style is logical and walks a very good line between presenting foundations (cybernetics, autopoiesis), storytelling and actionable advice. I will get a few more copies to hand to my colleagues.
Jeff does a good job of presenting the "why" behind several of the software industry's most effective practices. Agile, DevOps, and microservices are components of what I believe makes software successful, and this book does a good job of explaining how they do that for an organization. Beyond that, it ties in some of what intrigues me so much about the Lean Startup movement.
I'm posting this review about 2/3 of the way through the book, because I'm enjoying it enough that I'd like to discuss the ideas with my colleagues and friends with a software interest. I've bought it for 2 of them already.

However, I can't give it 5 starts because I was left wanting for practical techniques that would help me get started. If it was meant as a book of pure theory, then it could have been a lot more punchy and less like a technical manual that explains every concept and technique in detail before moving on. I found the early chapters a bit hard going.
It's a great book though and I would highly recommend it. Just give us more implementation advice please.
