A quick word of caution - don't expect to be a Terraform/Ansible/Puppet/OpenStack/AWS expert after you have finished reading, as this is not the point of this book (and besides, there are already many great books covering specific technologies). However, Morris has managed to cram an excellent high-level overview of all of these tools in only 300 pages, and more importantly, he provides the context, application and antipatterns of using these tools.
I believe nearly everyone in the infrastructure space will get something out of this book - seasoned operators/sysadmins will be able to take away a coherent view to the new style of building and managing infrastructure (not to mention a bunch of new tools and techniques to research); and those new to the scene will be able to develop an appreciation for the how everything knits together, and gain an understanding of the architectural patterns and practices surrounding practices that the like of Google, AWS and Netflix have been using for years.
Big kudos to the author, Kief Morris - I don't think he could have written a better book that both summarises the current state-of-the-art for architecting, deploying and managing infrastructure, and also provides excellent recommendations and documents well-established antipatterns for both associated architecture and process. A job well done!
