Format: Paperback
Started reading the book yesterday and read Part I and Part IV.
I have to say that i have not learned anything new. Everything there is already on different blogs.
The part about Mobile Cloud Computing is very weak. I was expecting a much detailed insight and sections about open standard, deployment challenges, deployment techniques, enterprise applications being exported to the cloud etc.

Another thing; i think that i have also spotted some typos, or may be its just my poor English.
Some of the stances also did not make any sense.

On the over all presentation: i expect the text to be in justified mode the text is aligned towards the right.
The references are given as links between the text, it should either be in the appendix or in the footnote.
The screen shoots are too big.

May be the next additions should be written in collaboration with other Cloud Computing and Mobile Cloud Computing professionals.

For me its a 3 star.
I would rather suggest reading blogs and attending webinars.
