I'm a casual reader of the author's blog and I find the pieces there thoughtful and reasonable. This book (v3) was ok, practical at points, but also polarizing/ranty at moments. I can understand the culture where the author is focused on release or die, but that's far from the reality of most companies and people. There are successful companies out there where life-work balance is encouraged and respected. It's not Silicon Valley or bust. Also, a business/practical book without a cheatsheet falls short from becoming actionable, therefore useful.
