  • $11.18 on the Amazon US site, with similar pricing on Amazon Germany, France, UK, Spain, Italy, and Japan. It’s crazy cheap for the amount of knowledge you are getting.

  • 336 pages totaling 58,833 words! This is a real-deal book (ISBN number and all) painstakingly put together from knowledge all over the globe!
  • 140 community contributors with 152 submissions help make up this book. That’s a lot of people with a lot of unique perspectives and experience on cloud design!
  • It was #1 on Amazon’s New Releases list in the US for the Computer Science genre and #1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers list in Germany under the Computers and Internet genre. 😮 And that’s just some screenshots I spotted on Twitter, it most likely made a lot of other #1 lists as well.

A big congrats to Bas and Christiaan on the success of this project! Looking forward to collaborating with everyone on future community projects! 😀
