If you have not read "The Phoenix Project" book, read that instead or read it first. I understand the author's intent to refresh the story and make it more modern with the use of the most recent technologies and tech terms. However, it seems to be more attempt to monetize once more based on the initial success of the "The Phoenix Project" book. There is no purpose of the "The Unicorn Project" as it reinforces the same points made in "The Phoenix Project." BTW, "The Phoenix Project" is a more realistic and better story. Don't take me wrong, I did enjoy reading the "The Unicorn Project," but I guess my expectations were set high after the first book. I liked how, in the first book, the main character had to manage and balance between his family and his office work and make tough choices. And it is missing from "The Unicorn Project."
