5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
I found this book extremely useful as an intro to AWS and liked the fact that it doesn't just scratch the surface, but actually goes deeper into the technology. I still use it regularly as a reference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, somewhat baffling
So who is this for? It starts telling you with pictures and text how to register, enter credit card details, and so on. Puhleeez! Then it 'dives into' setting up AWS storage, going into mind-numbing detail. So it is NOT readable as a book, unless for total coneheads, it is for reference. But seek the webhosting capabilities, and you will really not find: Route 53...

This review is from: Amazon Web Services For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) (Paperback)
So who is this for? It starts telling you with pictures and text how to register, enter credit card details, and so on. Puhleeez! Then it 'dives into' setting up AWS storage, going into mind-numbing detail. So it is NOT readable as a book, unless for total coneheads, it is for reference. But seek the webhosting capabilities, and you will really not find: Route 53 does pop up on p193, with some really inside-out explanations of what it is and how it relates to DNS register services, (which includes not-mentioned folks like e.g. GoDaddy). And that's it. Now if you look at Lynda training on AWS, it goes head-to-head with GoDaddy from the get-go all about how great AWS is in comparison. Who has a better grip on what folks want, I ask? Also, the book is a non-stop pitch for how great AWS is (for large, scalable businesses) but not really much about who might find it irrelevant - like the manager of the average website, frinstance. More case-by-case recipes, please! What if I have a hosted website and want to transition? No clues given here - none. Strange - maybe there really is a book that matches the title, but this ain't it.

The book itself is excellent, just what a newbie to Amazon Web Services needs.

The packaging could have been better as it was open and the book could easily have fallen out.
