By Rus Healy
I'm impressed. A huge amount of development went into this book and it's obvious from the way this book is organized that Cerri went to a lot of effort to do this the right way. It's very useful to me as a cloud services integrator. I also find the bits of "programmer angst" humorous, having worked with a lot of software engineers over the years. The book is useful to anyone who is looking for the cleanest, most consistent way to deploy resources into AWS.

A must, before you churn out live servers
By Sreeprakash. N
As rightly mentioned in this book, documenting and remembering what is what later on is one of the biggest complication in the amazing aws platform. Sooner than later you will realize that the assets you have created have become a nightmare to manage and replicate. Refactoring your meticulously architectured work can save days of trouble. This is not a book, this is a well documented collection of scripts to automate everything, full stop.

Just what I was looking for
This book is excellent. Its not just about the scripts - you learn a lot about good AWS security practice and the author has done a great job.
If you're involved in using AWS resources for your web app, this book is highly recommended, even if you don't end up using the supplied scripts.
