    2. This book is great reference material for when you want to affect change in an organization. Looking back at past jobs, I can see how applying some of the patterns (especially ones that I wouldn't have thought of myself) could have been very useful.But I did find the book difficult to get through. The structure with examples is great for reference, but when reading straight through I was constantly switching gears mentally. This was exhausting and meant I had to take it in small chunks.
