Since I've seen the book planned to be published I was really execited to get my hands on it and knowing Stuart's expertise from cloudacademy courses, I knew it will be a rich and well written book. And indeed it is.
I've been playing around with AWS since 2015, and it's a challenge to keep up to date with what AWS releases almost every month, however despite some changed in the screenshots that you may find and some formatting issues on kindle, the details captured in the book are really a foundation for the exam, not forgetting about the mock exams.
In my opinion maybe some personal recommendations and challenges for the reader will enrich this security journey on AWS.
