Haha, I haven't read anything else by Dr. Lamport but this book was excellent. I feel like this topic (discrete representations of software systems including liveness, safety, and fairness properties) is one of those topics where in 10 years there will be some testing framework that will allow you to verify code against a specification which has itself been mathematically verified for correctness.

There are some companies that have already used this concept for products (CosmosDB) but as far as I'm aware it requires manual verification of code against a spec which is tedious and time-consuming.
