    Comments about oreilly Google Compute Engine:

    The book is detailed and accurate and helps you get up and running fast. Of course it is difficult to review a book in mid-writing but if the quality and depth of the final sections is as good as the first, then there is a place for this in or on a system administrator's book shelf.

    All the examples I tried worked and though you can find much of this in Google's own documentation, this is a bit easier to read, follow and search.
