Ben's book is somewhat congruent with my own older book, "The Economics of Software Quality", which was co-authored with Olivier Bonsignour of CAST software, a colleague of Dr. Bill Curtis who wrote the foreword to Ben's book.
Many years ago in the 1970's IBM developed two powerful metrics that are useful for quality. One is the function point metric which is a good choice for quantifying software bugs. For example the average number of bugs found in software in 2017 is about 4.25 per function point and the average for agile projects is a bit over 3.00 bugs per function point.. The second IBM metric is "defect removal efficiency" (DRE) or the percentage of bugs found before release. Up until Ben Linders' book agile averaged about 92.5% in removing bugs. Hopefully the tips and advice in Ben's book can raise agile DRE up above 97% which is the range of the TSP methodology. Overall Ben's book has good advice about improving software quality.
