Utter nonsense

The 5 star reviews here are almost certainly shills: funny how they all arrived on exactly the same date!

I only got as far as the introduction but it's barely English:

"The objective of this guide is to present frameworks chairmen, frameworks engineers, furthermore newcomers to Microsoft Azure to some incredible <inaudible> contributions on the Microsoft open cloud stage. You will learn normal terms, structure examples and some specific instances on how to send IAAS answers for register, arrange and capacity on Azure..."

Good resource for general Azure knowledge

The audiobook is well presented and cover so much. I will encourage the Author to insert Chapter numbers at the begining of each chapter. This way, it will be more listening friendly. It's very difficult to track which Chapter you 're on.

No frills practice book for Azure learners

Excellent book for beginners. This is purely a hands-on-practice book. Those who do not have any concept about VMs, Storage,VPN Gateways, Application Gateway, Automation, File Storage Service, Azure Active Directory should do a bit of learning before using this lab manual.

Good Intro to Azure

This was a good book for those who are not computer wizards. Joseph k. Brown wrote the best book thus far on Computer Basics.

I’m an Azure certified architect. This book is useless

I’m certified as an Azure architect, having passed the AZ Fundamental, Cloud Development, and both of the Cloud Architecture exams.
If you are in IT development, infrastructure , dev ops, networking, and most other technical aspects of IT, this book is useless for you. If you are an Azure door to door salesman this book is perfect.
This book is a 5 hour long timeshare presentation . He repeats the buzz words over and over (“scalability”, “flexibility”) and cites quotes and articles praising Azure and never gets into any real meat.
Pluralsight, Udemy, and searching Azure on YouTube are far better uses of your time. Good luck to you all

Covers the basics

This audiobook shows you how to get started with Azure which is the best cloud offering available right now. I've tried Google's and AWS and although there is a learning curve to Azure this audiobook makes it so easy that I could get up and running in no time.

Awful Narration

The narrator shouldn't be reading technical books - he doesn't seem to understand what he's saying, making the sentences choppy and difficult to follow. An all but useless audio book.

I could not put this audio book stop. The author has used easy language throughout the book and, as an absolute beginner; this book has given me so much information without being difficult to follow. If you are looking for a basic guide to Azure, this is the book for you.

Good First Look at Azure
