    Comments about oreilly Puppet Essentials:

    I strongly recommend this book.

    I am not sure it is self sufficient to learn everything but I took it as a complement from other sources (books or websites) and it is well and deeply explained with a lot of tips.

    It is also pretty much up to date.

    Good job.
