Format: Paperback
This inexpensive book of 188 pages is well written and well laid out, with brief introductions to its sections, numbered steps of instructions on how to install things and how to do stuff on them, accompanied by clear colour screenshots, while tips and reminders appear on the page margins. It provides both explanation and inspiration to those starting to explore the trend towards cloud computing.

However, while reading the book I googled various things for further details, and I ended up with the feeling that all the pros were being presented and very few cons. For example we are not told that Microsoft Sky Drive can not be used on Windows XP. There is no mention that you can not use Google Documents offline unless you have Chrome installed, and the same goes for Google Calendar. There is no caution that Google accesses your data to personalise the adverts it shows you.

While a chapter is devoted to the excellent Dropbox, there is no mention that there are other cloud storage and syncing services, such as the equally good Sugarsync, out of a number of others. The chapter headed 'Making notes' in fact concentrates only on Evernote, while 'Pictures in the cloud' deals solely with Flickr. The equally good Photobucket appears in the index but it is only mentioned in another context. Google Documents is certainly the best known of its kind, but you could be forgiven for thinking it is the only one, when there are others like the apps that are bundled with Zoho Mail Suite. So you start to wonder if product sponsorship has affected what the book includes? Other things that are not mentioned in the book are online backup services and web operating systems.

The author has done a fantastic job explaining how to use the main cloud computing apps. Even though I am a dyed in the wool old school computer worker, I only had a sketchy idea of cloud computing, but not how to use it in day to day life. Read this book and you will start to use cloud computing to improve your productivity.

I thought this would be a roundup of advanced cloud computing and where it's going but it wasn't sadly (if your looking for something like that I'd recommend A Brief Guide to Cloud Computing). More targeted at beginners wanting to use online storage like Skydrive.
