So this is a read that takes work, but is worth it if you are interested in building and selling sustainable software.

It takes a substantial amount of mental stamina to get through this text. Long winded at times, the advice, thoughts and considerations mentioned are well worth the read and were enlightening.

Pretty good book...takes some time to read, think, re-read to really get the gist of what Luke Hohmann writes. It's easy to dismiss it as lightweight...until you bother thinking and re-reading.
