Good balance of principles, approaches, and practical techniques

The first part of the book would look boring and too "common sense" without the second part, where you get some practical advice on implementation. Good balance between the two parts, between principles and practical implementation.

The book describes the overall architecture in simple language and well defined layout, I wish more white papers are available in Kindle format as reading in it is a cool breeze.. Thanks

Bullet-point book, written by repetition and spreading out of just a few good ideas

I felt that i needed to finish this book because of how short it is and because I like to finish what I start.

That being said, this book offers very little value. The appendix, which is about 50% of the book is full of copy-pasted content from the chapters. As such, I'd say 25% of the book is literally copy paste.
The structure of the book then is based in parts on questions and answers. Most of them go like this:

This whitepaper does a good job at outlining a number of considerations individuals, teams, and organizations must make when designing their systems...particularly if moving to the cloud.

Filled with self-evident yet nonetheless practical advice. Would have liked to see some real-world architecture examples but I guess that'd be expecting too much. All in all it's a decent read that can be used as a cheatsheet/reference and that's probably its greatest merit.

Ok, but pretty general

I was hoping for some real life examples of how you can put AWS services together to build working systems. This is really an overview at a very high level

Does one rate such things? Half sales pitch, half darned good ideas, you probably should read this if you are going cloud native on the AWS platform.

A must-read for any solution architect

Precise, easy to grasp and a great place to start when designing any infrastructure for the long haul on AWS.

Consultant material

I was expecting to get some specific knowledge. The truth is that the document is a bit too generic for my taste. In fact the Appendix was more interesting for me than the rest of the book.
But hey, it's free
