This book gave me a really good understanding of what cloud computing is, what the security concerns are and how to deal with them. It is clear and well written, and gave me a god understanding of technical areas that I knew very little about. What I liked the most were the chapters on cloud security architecture and cloud operations. These are areas I would probably never work in, but now I have an appreciation for what architects and operations personnel face.
