        Comments about oreilly DevOps for Networking:

        Choice of chapters is rather good, but unfortunatelly this is the only thing I liked about this book. The content of the individual chapters is usually very, very generic and I did not find them much useful. When the author decides to go into details, it's almost like you are reading a configuration guide (especially chapters about Nuage VSP).
        Maybe this was caused by releasing this prematurelly - there is a lot of typographic errors and the diagrams which are not very good, also ebook edition is not without errors.
