Amazing talk, it sells the book really well at least for me!
With much much emphasis on evidence I have to ask: Have you read the book? Do you know anyone who has?
I would really like some opinions on it, although 624 pages seems a little bit too hard to digest for me
Aston set this to “opinion-piece” but in my opinion it is not, the talk is about evidence-based development (contrary to opinion based development, haha). Opinions about the book / talk you can find with google.
I have not read the book. The (complete iirc) contents of the book are also readable when you search for it on google.
