This is the best OSS book I’ve ever read

This post is about the most inspiring OSS book I’ve ever read, and yet it doesn’t contain a single word that is directly about OSS (so clearly I’m not spruiking my own OSS-centric book here 😉 ).
It’s a book that outlines the resolutions to so many of the challenges being faced by traditional communications service providers (CSPs) as well as the challenges faced by their OSS.

It resonates strongly with me because it reflects so many of my beliefs, but articulates them brilliantly through experiences from some of the most iconic organisations of our times – through their successes and failures.

And the title?

Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success.
Book by Ken Segall.
Insanely Simple

OSS is downstream of so many Complexity choices that this book needs to be read far beyond the boundaries of OSS. Having said that, we’re incredibly good at adding so many of our own layers of complexity.

Upcoming blogs here on PAOSS will surely share some of its words of wisdom.
