Its a good book. I'm a under-graduate college student, and have decided to build a proof of concept private cloud system for my FYP, I'm using this book as a guide to teach me the fundamentals of OpenStack. Be sure to check out the publishers site for updated commands and code, there are quite a few errors in the first chapter of the book. I recommended it though, its quite easy to understand and well laid out. I plan to deploy my OpenStack environment in time in VirtualBox and with CentOS components, this book teaches through Ubuntu, but if your familiar with the difference's with different OS's package management and services enable/restart etc, you wont have any trouble, moving what you learn here in Ubuntu and apply it elsewhere. OpenStack Havana just came out as this book was published, would of been nice to have some Docker covered in the book, but I'm sure it'll feature in next release of book.
