So I just wandered into Mike McGarr‘s office earlier today. He was on the phone so we couldn’t talk. If you ever walked into Mike’s office, you would know that he always leaves his current NY Times Best Seller on his desk. Today’s new book on his desk is The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win. Mike’s words were pretty clear and simple…”You have to read this because John Allspaw likes this book. In fact, he wrote a blog about how awesome this book is.”
So naturally because Mike likes it and because Allspaw likes it…I just had to go search it on Amazon.
This is where the story gets better. Amazon must have implanted a secret chip in my head. Before I could even search for the book…it’s was in the #1 spot on my list of recommendations. Very tricky Bezos…way to be spooky and awesome in the same breath!
