This is a Gem of Information, don't let the publish date scare you off!

This book is great, there is no doubt about that. After reading this you walk away with knowledge that most of your peers may know a little bit about . However not to this extent. I see this book as more of a guide, and if your company even tries to establish a good process without this knowledge, this fills the gaps in pretty good. It turned out on one of the projects I'm on, we are very close to CI, but nobody knows the depth of it to act on it appropriately. This book walks you through, and breaking down each step of the process, has you examine your current situation at every step, then you can apply principles presented where appropriate. Even though this book is dated, it is still a gem, and do not let that discourage you one bit. If your suffering from poor development process, this book will help take your company to the next level.
It was tough to give it 4 stars, when it really deserves 5 for the quality of information. The reason I give it 4, is because things are repeated way too much. For example ("CI is great because you can do this, this, and this"), couple pages later ("CI is great because you can do "this", "this" and "this"). I found this a bit annoying being told the same thing again and again.
