I look forward to read the real world examples especially since they cover the evolution of devops as the project evolves.

Really interested in the cultural and behavioural aspects of establishing a DevOps mentality that the book looks to address - the chapter on No Pain, No Gain and Culture and Behaviours would appear to cover these points well. Looks like this book should be on the list of all those companies trying to establish a DevOps mentality.

A lot of paragraphs have caught my attention in the table of contents, bat at most I'm interested in Building trust-based relationships across organizational boundaries, t.m. how could a DevOps-like environment successfully interact with a rigid, rule-based consumer.
