Outdated so suggest for this alone its not a good buy. Besides that, it basically just is a collection of screen shots showing the mechanical steps to do something. Nothing insightful and some things wrong, like the continuous deployment (very) mini-section. I should not complete a 315 page book in less than an hour. I am giving it a 2 vice a 1 because someone with 0 knowledge may want some outdated steps by steps to get a gist of something to accomplish.

soooo very very disappoint and likely would stay away from this author.

On principle I want my money back

I've gone through a lot of books on Azure topics, and the main problem is, by the time they are printed they are already out of date.

Tejaswi got ahead of the curve and includes things that have just recently been released. The samples are relevant and practical as is the device given in the book.

I would recommend this as a great buy.

Given the rapid advances with Azure services, it is quite a pleasure to find a book that appears to be written specifically for my needs in early 2014.

Strongly recommended.

I originally purchased hard-copy as I like to mark them up and then de-construct the pages into smaller chunks for detailed reading and experimentation.

So on the third pass through I went ahead and purchased the Kindle version for safe keeping <g>

Just read the book on building Windows Azure Web Sites. Good examples on integration with VS Online, GitHub and configuring caching in Azure for the Web Site.

Redkar's book is extremely well written, and covers this topic with a high level of detail. It's quite a challange discussing a topic that's changing as rapidly as Azure, but this book really nails it and I enjoyed reading it very much. I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to get the hang of Windows Azure Web Sites!

Azure WebsSites is one of the more interesting products offered by Microsoft on Azure but there is a lot to take in when first exposed to it. Mr Redkar does an excellent job delving into the capabilities of Azure WebSites and when/how to use it. I work more with the Windows Azure Pack Web Sites product which is the on premise version of Azure Web Sites and found that while it was not written for that, it still helped with how to work with it. Overall is well written and very informative. It should be a must have for any IT professional interested in leveraging the Azure Web Sites or Windows Azure Pack Web Sites.
When the book came out it covered pretty much all capabilities being offered at that time. There have been some advances in the system since the book came out and I hope that in time we will see an update with the additional product changes and maybe even some details on working with the Azure Pack version of WebSites.

The first chapter of the book is very useful, as it collects lots of information from about the internals of the system and explains the technical tradeoffs quite well. After the first chapter the bulk of the book were mainly walk through how to configure various web apps. I found this a little less interesting. Toward the end there was a bit more technical content but I think it could have gone into a bit more depth.

Finally a book that takes you step by step through using Windows Azure Websites! I would have loved to see an in depth chapter on Kudu, and hopefully the author will update the book with the latest features like webjobs.
