Books: Kubernetes: The Complete Guide To Master Kubernetes (March 2019 Edition)

I started reading Kubernetes: The Complete Guide To Master Kubernetes (March 2019 Edition) and almost immediately had to put it down. I don't get it. All the other reviews were so good, but the text of this book is literally terrible. It's like a non-native speaker was leaning on Google Translate and was in a hurry to get things out the door.

For instance, on p. 8, it says, "It will also run on vacant metal machines." I think the author meant to say, "It also runs on bare metal." On the same page, it also says, "The main objectives of Kubernetes is to hide the complexity of managing a fleet of containers by providing REST arthropod genus for the needed functionalities." What the heck is "REST arthropod genus"?

I generally lean toward O'Reilly books because their product is generally so good. However, in this case, the O'Reilly book's ratings were pretty bad. I don't know how this book got the highest ratings other than to say they're not real.

Oh, and btw, the chapter "Docker vs. Kubernetes vs. Apache Mesos: Why What You Think You Know Is Probably Wrong" was copied from this blog post.

Yeah, it's a bunch of fake reviews. If you click through on the reviewers they all reviewing the same diet books and romance novels.
