Who This Book Is Written For
This book is primarily written for software engineers and site reliability engineers who have either split a monolith and are wondering “what’s next?”, or who are building microservices from the ground up and want to design stable, reliable, scalable, fault-tolerant, performant microservices from the get-go.
However, the relevance of the principles within this book is not limited to the primary audience. Many of the principles, from good monitoring to successfully scaling an application, can be applied to improve services and applications of any size and architecture at any organization. Engineers, engineering managers, product managers, and high-level company executives may find this book useful for a variety of reasons, including determining standards for their application(s), understanding changes in organizational structure that result from architecture decisions, or for determining and driving the architectural and operational vision of their engineering organization(s).
I do assume that the reader is familiar with the basic concepts of microservices, with microservice architecture, and with the fundamentals of modern distributed systems —readers who understand these concepts well will gain the most from this book. For readers unfamiliar with these topics, I’ve dedicated the first chapter to a short overview of microservice architecture, the microservice ecosystem, organizational challenges that accompany microservices, and the nitty-gritty reality of breaking a monolithic application into microservices.
"Implementing the microservices architecture style is hard, particularly from an operational perspective. This book will help you get it right by understanding what is involved in making microservices production-ready. Regardless of your role, Susan gives you the insights necessary to build an effective production microservices ecosystem." - Mark Richards, Independent Consultant

5-8 pounds - maybe.
20 - no way.
I work in a company that started laying the groundwork for microservices two years ago by implementing an infrastructure - based on mesos - that puts the deployment pipeline under the control of the development teams. This book has been an invaluable insight into illuminating some possible reasons things are how they are and what decisions need to be taken when building our service.
The book is structured with overview introductory chapters laying out the areas each of which are expanded on later in the book in separate chapters. This structure makes the book useful for developers/devops - who should read the whole book - and business/management people who should at least read the overview chapters.
All in all a very useful book that should be read by all members of the development and business team in your company if you are considering using microservices extensively. It is important that everyone understands the challenge and has a good mental model of what is required. This book provides that.

Five stars book, one of those you HAVE to have in paper format in your bookshelf.
