Chris Weaver, Architect at CISCO

I took the test exactly two weeks after I started studying. Your book was an integral part of my success. Thank you for writing it. The graphics are very helpful for visualizing what's going on.

I've already recommended it to a few others.

Steve Mayne, Lead Architect at 1and1

Thanks for this, Matthew - I feel far more prepared for the CKAD exam thanks to your book.

The Linux Foundation's CKAD course was substandard by comparison.

Ron Freiburg, Engineer at HomeNet Automotive

Originally went through the LFD259 Kubernetes for Developers training course and wasn’t quite satisfied with the preparation.

I looked for more resources and stumbled upon this book and was very impressed. Well organized and packed with clear information, I was more than happy to upgrade to the full package.

I would highly recommend for anyone preparing for the CKAD exam or just looking for a solid reference for understanding Kubernetes.
