Packed with exclusive, in-depth interviews with top executives who are "in the cloud" at major corporations including IBM, Microsoft, Coca- Cola, Avon, Boeing, Baker Hughes, McKesson, Flextronics, Salesforce.com, VMware, Wells Fargo, and Toyota, On Top of the Cloud explores:

Interesting but light on detail

Is there anything you would change about this book?

More detail. Constantly referencing lots of research and evidence that is never surfaced and you are left with only high level anecdotes.

What could Hunter Muller have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Stop giving details of the entire CV and an advertisement of the company for people being referenced. At times it felt like they were paid ads.

Was On Top of the Cloud worth the listening time?

Just about. I came away thinking meh and don't feel I have walked away with very much useful information.
