This book gives a great intro into the fundamentals of OpenStack. For the most part the information is explained well enough, but occasionally terms are introduced without their meaning and some of the paragraphs really could do with some rewording. The biggest bug bear I had with this book are the large number of spelling and grammatical errors which interrupt the flow of reading and occasionally require you to read the sentence again for clarity (e.g. Head data base, instead of Heat DB). For the sake of a good proof read this book loses some stars from me.

HASH(0x95ad43f0) out of 5 stars Not worth for the price 11 April 2014
By minseo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The depth of information is too narrow -- not much beneficial.
Superficial explanation is given for each component with only few pages.
Space is wasted by many figures, which are not much informative.
Besides, there are so many typos and grammar mistakes.

The book might be useful for high-school students.

HASH(0x959e509c) out of 5 stars Typo-riddled glorified cliff-notes 9 April 2014
By R. Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This thin "book" is more like a collection of pages off the Internet. You can breeze through it in a couple of hours, and while it gives a high-level overview of OpenStack components, it does not provide much context on the why's and how's. There are many typographical errors, which irritate and take away from the little interest that is built up by the nice diagrams. The highlight of the book is the step-by-step description of how certain modules work. While it is very simplistic and repetitive, it does clarify the operations for the novice reader. The collection of diagrams and the step-by-step descriptions take up most of the book, leaving little else for the author to fill in.

Buy it for a very quick overview, or better still, read it on the Internet.

HASH(0x959e3f84) out of 5 stars Great OpenStack Primer 25 Mar. 2014
By R. Hicks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Describes origins, need and reason for existence.
Describes all modules and interaction between modules. Goes over reason for Rest and API interaction. Feature overview per release and release structure.
Note this is only a primer and is a fast read. Helped to obtain the basics.

HASH(0x95c6933c) out of 5 stars Not woth the money 16 April 2014
By D. Goding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's high level and very general. Doesn't provide enough information for the price. I recommend just reading Wikipedia instead, and following the some links.

HASH(0x96a6829c) out of 5 stars nice explanation - too many spelling and syntax errors 20 May 2014
By W. Gateman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book contains some very good descriptions and explanations of openstack components. However, as you move into the book you begin to encounter spelling and syntax errors.

Along with this you notice that some pictures / figures are not aligned, something that can be done very easily by multiple software programs.

Clearly the writer did not always understand how English sentence structures are created, but it also could be that some of the final layouts were rushed since the figures / pictures had issues.

Overall, if the above mistakes don't make you crazy, you can figure out the intended words that are misspelled and will gain an overview of openstack.
