When I read the announcement for the "Release It! Design and Deploy Production-Ready Software", book promotion, I couldn't help of think of another book: "Ship it! A Practical Guide to Successful Software Projects".
The author, Jared Richardson, blogged the following: "I believe in building teams, not products." The Ship It! book focuses on getting to the Release 1.0 product. And, the techniques appear to mostly focus on getting people to talk.
How does Release It! compare to this philosophy of "building teams not products"?
