The text is littered with examples, web addresses and great explanations.
Highly recommended if you run a business and am curious about 'the cloud' or (like me) just need a broad explanation for personal interest.
From the start the book is thorough and detailed and it explains some complicated things in a really simple way so everyone can understand. From technology novices to Internet geeks this book is ideal for everyone.
The book is crammed with useful web links of practically everything from social networks to useful softwares. Kate explains the uses for every website perfectly and if you are reading a chapter about video softwares she gives you a choice of websites and not just the most popular one. This is extremely useful because it allows me to compare the websites myself and decide which one I think is best.
In conclusion, Working the Cloud is a fascinating read which will advantage anyone who uses the internet - which is basically everyone! I would definitely recommend this book.
This great book will hopefully be a hit and if you are seriously interested in learning from someone who talks and writes in a wonderfully illustrative way that is very easy to understand, then Kate is the person to follow.
I have been a huge fan of hers for almost 20 years and she consistently delivers high quality work and this book is all you need to get a great start, improve your knowledge and make some money too.
What are you waiting for? Just buy it and you will be converted too!
First, a couple of things that are not so good. I read the book from the beginning - a habit I've fallen into with eBooks - and found Hilary Devey's 'Foreword' rather lumpy; it could have done with a good edit. Also, the book can come over as a pile of bricks at times, with the mortar to bring it together less easy to find - though Kate does give useful examples throughout.
That said, this is a very practical book that could be used to set up an internet business and to run it economically from your local coffee shop, if you like. The strongest sections are at the front of the book and are enough to help a businesses to establish a social media presence - though perhaps not enough to grow it and co-ordinate it.
Kate's writing is very clear and her enthusiasm is infectious in the manner of her regular slot on the BBC's Click program. I have been using IT for years and there was plenty that I highlighted for later reference. Well worth buying even for old hands.
