In 2016, Google's Site Reliability Engineering book ignited an industry discussion on what it means to run production services today-and why reliability considerations are fundamental to service design. Now, Google engineers who worked on that bestseller introduce The Site Reliability Workbook, a hands-on companion that uses concrete examples to show you how to put SRE principles and practices to work in your environment.

Thirty-five years after the publication of Ronald Blythe's classic portrait of an English village, Akenfield, Craig Taylor returned to the Suffolk village on which the book was based. He sought out locals who appeared in the original book to learn how their lives had changed, met newcomers and interviewed Ronald Blythe himself. The result reverberates with the voices of the villagers: young farmers, retired orchardmen and Eastern European migrant workers talk about farming in an age of globalization; commuters, weekenders and retirees discuss the realities behind the rural idyll; and the local priest, teacher and pub owner describe the daily pleasures and tribulations of village life.
