From the Publisher
What Are Microservices?
Microservices are small, autonomous services that work together. Let’s break that definition down a bit and consider the characteristics that make microservices different.
The benefits of microservices are many and varied. Many of these benefits can be laid at the door of any distributed system. Microservices, however, tend to achieve these benefits to a greater degree primarily due to how far they take the concepts behind distributed systems and service-oriented architecture.
Key benefits include:
- Technology Heterogeneity
- Ease of Deployment
- Organizational Alignment
- Optimizing for Replaceability.

Well worth a read for anybody who is in the throws of a Microservice architecture or planning to embark on the journey.
Sam does a great job balancing technical writing with a touch of creative writing. I have started to recommend this book to customers and co-workers as a first step into Microservices.

He really needs to go back in to before java and see why those systems are still in use today.
Performance is key, not functional beauty.
Lots of good references are listed but most seem to stem from java.
If I had only ever done java, I'd give this 5 stars as my universe would be quite small.
If I've been computing for nearly 40 years and have seen how bad modern day developers are, then I'd give this 2 stars as the approaches here ignore programming for speed, accuracy, user experience and more importantly programming for what the user wanted.
He is one of mines, the loves XML.
I love the comparisons with the way they work at Amazon or Netflix.
