I liked the book and like the adaptation. A stretch, but career wise I identify with both Tom thr Builder and Philip the priest or whatever. My last job I founded and ran a high tech company and experienced lots of politics and treachery that went against what we were trying to do. Like Tom I was the get it done guy, engineering, mfg, operations, whatever. And like Philip I had to get folks motivated even after they'd already busted their humps. No indulgences to give out though. Bummer.
As an amateur astronomer, I loved the way Philip mixed astronomy (sunrise) and religious precepts to get the quarry workers on board. True to historical form.
