About the Author
John Arundel is a devops consultant, which means he solves difficult problems for a living. (He doesn't get called in for easy problems.)
He has worked in the tech industry for 20 years, and during that time has done wrong (or seen done wrong) almost everything that you can do wrong with computers. That comprehensive knowledge of what not to do, he feels, is one of his greatest assets as a consultant. He is still adding to it.
He likes writing books, especially about Puppet (The Puppet 3 Beginner's Guide is available from the same publisher). It seems that at least some people enjoy reading them. He also provides training and coaching on Puppet, which it turns out is far harder than simply doing the work himself.
Off the clock, he can usually be found driving a Land Rover up some mountain or other. He lives in a small cottage in Cornwall and believes, like Cicero, that if you have a garden and a library, then you have everything you need.

However, I was surprised to find lots of little gems scattered through the book which I know I can use to simplify some of my existing puppet modules.
The only negative, and the reason I didn't rate it with 5 stars is that it has absolutely no windows recipes. Now that Puppet is evolving to support Windows, some example code would definitely be of use to myself and others.

I learned a lot from this book and have a bunch of new tools to use in my day to day use of Puppet.
