One liner review: Authors were able hit the sweet spot between theory and implementation by picking an interesting real life problem that demands the key challenges of microservice based design to be discussed and built, deployed, monitored a system for that.

Book structure: Divided into four parts of which design, deployment, monitoring section discusses what their name implies. The other section(the lay of the land) is introductory, mostly comparing monoliths with microservices.

Shelves: ibooks, it
For an "In Action" title, there is very little "Action" going on. Not that the book lacks information: There is plenty of theoretical information, although a lot is hidden in "cohesive" adjectives: "If you do this, the service will not be cohesive", "doing so will make it more cohesive"... and what the author means by "cohesive" is never explained -- I'd ask the author to replace every reference to cohesive with a proper explanation.

Also, there are a lot of images. Not that images by themselves

It's an interesting overview of Microservices, but more from Architecture perspective vs. really "in Action".
It's good to see that the authors agree that regulatory requirements are a perfect fit for microservices :)
