One of the worst technical texts I have read in years, so much so that I am suspicious of the motivations of any of the other reviewers who praised this book and its publisher. I made the purchase after having seen a flashy, full-page Sybex ad in a trade magazine; Sybex apparently excels in producing attractive ads and professional-looking book covers. However, the fact that I am submitting this review over two years after reading the book should convey the lingering disgust that I have for the publisher and the text. The number of typographical and formatting errors is unprecedented in my experience. But I could have overlooked this had there been any substantial content here; instead, the book is replete with (often worthless) diagrams and screenshots that are enlarged to absurdity as if their real purpose is to stretch the page count. Between the unrelenting series of redundant images, the authors manage to squeeze in a bit of text that explains cloud concepts to only the most elementary degree. In short, the whole production left me feeling like I had been victimized by a fraud.
