Format: Paperback
I wrote a pre-emptive review on this some time ago for this book based upon an advance copy I was fortunate enough to receive. Since then there has been a revision of a number of chapters, and I have therefore had a chance to read the book again, including the revisions, and decided to post another more accurate review.

As one reviewer on Amazon wrote, the book is like a series of disjointed blog articles. To my mind this is both a strength and possible weakness. The weakness being just what it says; sometimes the different writing styles and approaches, as well as the chapter changes can be a little jarring as you mentally shift gears from one chapter to another.

That said, I have long realised that books like this, written for large complex subjects, are not exactly meant to be read as novels! And this is where this books strength comes out. The contributing authors (at least the ones I recognise) are well respected experts in their fields and can therefore provide best of breed advice and guidance on their relevant areas.

The ability to either dip in and out at random and learn something, or even to search for a particular topic that you need advice on is the books greatest strength. Want to know how ISO27001 can help you? Chapter/Rule 9. Is free really free in the cloud? Chapter/Rule 25. How about the effective approaches to risk management? Chapter/Rule 6.

This book is not the definitive piece on technology and security in the cloud (does that book even exist?), but it is an effective and simple approach to a large and complex subject that in many cases will stop many traditional IT and security manager in their tracks. It may not even answer all of your questions, but it will definitely ensure you know what questions to ask, and that in itself is the most important lesson.

To set the expectations right from the start - this book is not a step by step guide on how to migrate your business to the cloud, it doesn't contain recipes how to get things right, but it is not a FUD list either. It is in fact an awesome mind-map for those that are interested in using cloud environments for fun or for profit - things you should really look into, consider pros and cons... and keep in mind once you are 'in the cloud'.

Chapters cover variety of topics and are written by some of the best people in their respective areas. The book speaks in many voices but all of them lead to one conclusion - think, evaluate in your local context, build your own "cloud recipe".

Cloud is here, right now! Get over it, adapt or fail.

Incoherent 27 Nov. 2011
By J. Freund - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been hesitant to review this book as I know some of the authors well enough to know that their writing and thoughts are fabulous. However, with two editors on this book, you'd think there would have been some actual editing done. This is a book that is essentially a collection of first-draft blog posts. Each "article" by the various experts talks about cloud security in a way that varies from brilliant to mind-numbingly incoherent. Editing is more than just running a spell check, you need to make sure that the various authors' works can be strung together to form a theme throughout the book. Further, each "article" needs to contain a complete thought. Many ramble on for a long time with too many subsections containing a sentence or two without ever completing a thought. Many "articles" end suddenly without ever giving you a feeling about what their point was. My comments on editing are more than just concerns about grammar and style (of which there are many problems that contribute to a lack of clear, understandable writing). It is also about those macro editing issues that will keep this book from receiving the recognition that it deserves. I understand that there is a revision of this book being done for a release later this year, and I hope that there is better emphasis put on editing in the next edition.

Very valuable read for those who are thinking of making the jump to cloud! 23 Mar. 2012
By Jesmond Darmanin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As another reviewer said this is not a one size fits all solution book to address the jump to cloud land. Your approach has to be customised depending on the business and it's function. It will surely help out in the deciding phase and simplifying the pros and cons balancing. The various authors in this book are some of the most well known in the industry and i'm positive that what they wrote in the book is based on past personal experience. Very valuable read for those who are thinking of making the jump to cloud!
