    Wow, a truly phenomenal book about large software modernization projects. I read the entire book in a single sitting as a PDF on my desktop (which I was not expecting). Bellotti takes what many might consider a dry topic and brings in interesting anecdotes from history, along with relevant perspectives from seemingly unrelated disciplines like sociology, behavioral economics, systems thinking, and more. The book provides not only high level frameworks for thinking about these types of problems i Wow, a truly phenomenal book about large software modernization projects. I read the entire book in a single sitting as a PDF on my desktop (which I was not expecting). Bellotti takes what many might consider a dry topic and brings in interesting anecdotes from history, along with relevant perspectives from seemingly unrelated disciplines like sociology, behavioral economics, systems thinking, and more. The book provides not only high level frameworks for thinking about these types of problems in the abstract, but it also offers pragmatic & prescriptive advice for solving problems based on differing contexts. The book is well structured, and written in an accessible style. I'd also call out that this book is not limited to a technical audience. While software managers/engineers/TPMs will definitely enjoy & get value out of it, I think this book is just as important (if not more important) for product managers, executives, or any other non-technical audience involved with executing product strategy.
