This book is an excellent companion of the youtube Video's series which is BTW an excellent overview (from introduction with ad-hoc command to real world use case up to AWX/Tower and CI/CD pipeline). And this book is going far deeper.
On top of that you see that Jeff have not just a theoric knowledge but a real experience of DevOps day to day problems.
As IT professional that definitely a book I recommend.
When I look at the "go to menu" the table of contents is disabled, and I wrote here to complain. But then I used ^f to find the subject I wanted to go back to and found an index.

From the first chapter you are running simple playbooks and the book builds on this and it becomes a great tutorial.
As a Linux Systems Administrator I found this book is the perfect introduction to Ansible.
And although I'd argue that Ansible is pretty much always used for DevOps matters, the title "Ansible for DevOps" is apt.
Whoever has used Ansible Galaxy roles or read the Ansible or Molecule documentation or lingered on mailing lists and such, will have stumbled over the nickname geerlingguy and that's the author of this book.
His qualification to write such a book is therefore not in doubt. Unlike other books which assume you have no privacy concerns using some cloud service, this book strives to allow the reader to reproduce the results locally and thereby teaches the basics of how to stage a production environment.
Although the Vagrant examples make use of VirtualBox, it's easy to adjust those examples to use with libvirtd (provided you have worked with libvirtd before and know the quirks when using Vagrant boxes that only come in a VirtualBox flavor).
I liked the book so much, I went ahead and got the ebook from the author's website as well, giving a tip instead of just the minimal price.
You NEED a Linux machine. Windows does not work.
