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..."

Comprehensive, well structured

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 friendly. It's very difficult to track which Chapter you 're on.

Good supplimental content for learning Azure

I bought this audiobook in the hopes that it would help me prepare for the Microsoft exam. I found it to be very useful and I passed the test. The audiobook is well organized and covers the topics that are on the exam and it does so in a logical way.

Excellent information on identity protection

I bought this audiobook a while back, but only now had the chance to hear it. Excellent information on identity protection and network security, the areas where I wanted to focus - these two chapters cover (and rightfully so, may I say) almost one third of the audiobook. Key Vault and IoT are interesting additions as well.

Nice intro to Azure security

I have been working with Azure for the past few years. During that time I have had minimum exposure to security and networking details, so was hoping that this book would help me get up to speed on those topics.

Good training material

The IoT chapter felt a bit forced and did little to provide concrete value.This audiobook arrived on time and in good condition. It will help me a lot as I teach myself. Thank you.

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.

Easy language and excellent guideline

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.

An extraordinary spot to begin

The audiobook is a quick and simple perused. It covers the reasons you would need to change to Azure, just as giving you great data. On the off chance that you don't know anything about Azure, this audiobook is an extraordinary spot to begin.
