"I started with no prior knowledge of the author, Jono Bacon. My initial fears about the author were quickly removed by reading the first chapter. Jono has good story-telling skills and the prose is never boring or too verbose. The entire book is packed with real-life anecdotes and references and it’s not hard to read, even if you are not a techie type."

"Надо сказать, что я новичок в работе с платформой Heroku. По сути, познакомился с ней недели 3 назад. Ну, а познакомившись был очарован элегантностью и простотой подхода, который пронизывает все элементы платформы. А раз так случилось, то, конечно же, мне стало интересно и захотелось копнуть поглубже. Вот таким вот образом я и познакомился с новой книгой издательства O'Reilly Heroku: Up and Running написанной Нейлом Мидлтоном и Ричардом Шниманом." Full Review >
