I was gathering some material for a Gartner summit next week in Sydney (we're a sponsor) and was pleased to see that John's excellent book on 'SOA in the Real World' is now published and available online.   Recommended if you want a pragmatic perspective on Service Orientation.

BTW, if you're at the summit I'll be attending and around our stand during the breaks, Nils is also speaking on Microsoft's Software + Services strategy.
