The author starts by explaining the origin and rise of DevOps, why it's important, and the problems it can help solve. He takes a holistic view, showing how not only all different roles on a development team, but also those on the operations side, benefit by working together, rather than by leaving the "Ops" part of delivering a product to a separate department. One thing I especially like about the book is it warns you of potential pitfalls along the way, so you can recognize if your team is getting into trouble, and make course corrections.
Though the book appropriately notes that people and processes are more important than tools, we still need tools to create the fast feedback needed for successful software delivery. The book presents examples of useful tools and appropriate ways to measure and track progress. It explores how processes such as Kanban help ensure successful development and delivery.
Best of all, the book presents many real-life examples, which I think are a great way to learn. Disclaimer: I provided one of these real-life stories about my own teams' DevOps approach. So this may not be the most objective review. However, I wouldn't have volunteered as a technical reviewer, nor taken the trouble to provide an example, if I didn't believe this book provides essential information. It ties together various agile values, principles and practices with the practical side of how to turn concepts into delivered features that provide business value.
