"This is a great book – one of the top 3 or 4 technical books I’ve read in the past 3 years. Every developer working on Azure must read this book. Must. Nothing beats the experience of working on a new platform, but this book will sure make it easier, and teach you the benefits and the pitfalls of this environment."

Descriptions are concise with lots of examples, you don't want to read copy of the MSDN on every method and possibility product has in 1000 pages biblia.
