I really enjoyed the first few chapters. The core concept is explained quite well, and I found the ideas very inspirational.
In fact, for days I was obsessed with thoughts about how I could use these great ideas in the system I’m working on.
However, I was really surprised to reach the end of the book so quickly. I think there was a lot more to talk about.
Especially, I would have liked to see a few case studies or at least some more very concrete examples about how to apply event logging in a real system. The ideas in this book are simple and elegant, but I have a feeling that applying them to production systems might not always be.
So I am left with the feeling of having read only half of a book, and I can only give it 3/5 even though I think the first chapters are at least 4/5.
