The AWS books (i.e. Amazon Web Services for Dummies) are too technical - this book has a good niche.
I would recommend this for the project manage that wants to learn a little bit about cloud - or the architect that is coming over from a different field (i.e. security or networking) and likes to start at the very beginning.
That being said - this isn't a "dummies book to cloud" - its further along than that. You sill need to understand architecture and other advanced computing topics to get the full value of the book
The book takes you through a roadmap and foundational concepts about how to approach your applications and the cloud whether you are in enterprise IT or a nice greenfield startup. Some of the concepts are available in other places but you will be hard pressed to fine a more concise ordered guide. The author also provides lots of references to other information throughout the chapters.
There are a lot of concepts covered including Rest based API's, Cloud Types, Devops, Security and Compliance (really good) as well as organization impacts. You will probably discover as I did about half way through the book that 99.9 of the stuff that is covered is a great foundation for a modern enterprise IT shop whether headed to the cloud or not. I ended up bookmarking about a million things which is always a good sign.
I've done three enterprise IT cloud projects and I sorely wish I would have had this book before starting them. Although I'm going back to explore some of the chapters in more detail, the book was easy to get through in a weekend. I highly recommend reading it.
This book is not really about an architectural discipline to cloud decisions, except at perhaps the highest level of abstraction to the point where is is merely an introduction.
Thomas Erl's work in this area would be better suited.
Also short enough for people who are terminally busy to finish.
