Potential bias: I got this book for free at a conference. It is however free to download as an ebook on the Camunda website.

The book gives a lot of good insights in the different use-cases for Process Automation tooling. When to use them, when not to use them and most of all (which is an aspect I liked): Who can benefit from using these tools? (nearly everyone as long as it isn't used to over-engineer a simple system).

I liked that the author clearly states his biases (creator of Camunda, one of the most well know Workflow / Process Automation tools on the market). The book does not feel like a commercial for his product at all, although sometimes the frequent mentions of "any good good workflow engine should have X" feels like a jab towards competitors not offering feature X. It does not get in the way of solid reasoning and argumentation... so I don't consider it a bit deal.

I like that the book challenges a few misconceptions I and many other developers have about Process Automation Tools. For that "breaking out of a thought pattern" alone, this is worth the read!
