I really liked it and am already using parts of it in my daily work.

Between the official docs, the IRC channel, and this book you should have a fair amount of coverage.

Initially when I started to work with puppet I found it hard to manage my modules, certificates and various conf files. In these terms I found this book a practical and handy guide, with lot of best practices.

The best part is the way each content is organized. Each topic is distributed into following sections "Getting ready", "How to do it", "How it works", "There's more", and "See also". This made things detailed and clear for me.

Even if you have done puppet set-up in this book you might find some useful info which can make things easier or better. For example, this books, talks about various puppet.conf parameters (as common as modulepath and as unknown as usecacheonfailure, ).

Another good thing which I felt that apart from managing Application, Packages and Virtual resources, this book covered Reporting and graphing. Though I haven't tried reporting and graphing yet, but courtesy this book I might try that soon.

The only 2 things to keep in mind regarding this book. First, it is not for beginners and demands some understanding of Puppet and Linux (though author has mentioned in the book, but thought you should be aware). Second, it is not purely a "How do I" kind of book.

I think this the book that I wanted Pro Puppet to be. Light on handholding. Lots of "here's an example of something you might find handy, and a resource link if you're more curious about it." I've already put lots of it into practice. Top book recommendation for anyone that does or wants to work with Puppet. Between the official docs, the IRC channel, and this book you should have a fair amount of coverage. Grab Pro Puppet if you're having scale issues.

You need to have a VERY serious working knowledge and foundation of Puppet for this book to be beneficial. Most explanations are vague and seem to leave out important details that will send you into a troubleshooting frenzy, since Puppet itself is non-forgiving. I learn quite fast, but the format of this book left a lot of basic questions still unanswered for me. I put it down and found myself going through Puppet's website to learn what I needed to know.

I have been running a basic puppet setup for a while, and this book (that I read in about 6 hours) really helped me understand some things about puppet and gave me a lot of ideas of what to do next (and how to do it).

I recently read this book and it was enlightening -- that is the least I can say. It is organized into a set of recipes addressing the most common problems you have with puppet. I think the whole point is about being practical and it gives you various ways to achieve the same goal, depending if you want to do a quick and dirty hack or pick a long term solution. The whole book aims at being practical and it achieves this goal pretty well. However, it is not for beginners. Puppet itself is not for beginner and you should already have written and run into problem to really take advantage of this book.

This is a shameless copy of a more complete review I blogged about:
