I would recommend you read introductory online resources (like at the Ansible site) or the nice short tutorial at Digital Ocean on how to get started, just to have a really broad overview.
Then - get this book!
The author does a nice job of learn by doing. Many books like this would end up repeating the official ansible documentation, and he doesn't do that.
Each of the examples provide value on how you can use this framework for real world purposes.
Where Ansible gets really tricky is when you try to get it to do things with variables, lists, jinja filters, control flow, and custom modules. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an Ansible book out there that covers advanced topics like that.
This book is fine if you're using Vagrant with Virtualbox and you just want to get your feet wet with Ansible.
