Hi,
How does Docker In Practice differ from Docker In Action?
Does it delve deeper into the topics and maybe skip some that are less important?
As a beginner, would Docker In Practice be a good starting point to learn the technology?

Hi Will,

Docker in Action is a more standard 'introduction' to Docker and overview of its features.

Docker in Practice was conceived far more as a handbook for people 'in the field' using Docker in various contexts. We try and be emphathetic towards the harassed and busy reader by giving practical advice and tools. We also hope that along the way you will learn lots of other useful tools techniques for software engineering work. We strove to make it informal and pragmatic.

Chapter 2 covers the core of Docker in a 'hands on' way, and is available free here: https://www.manning.com/books/docker-in-practice, and gives a good flavour of our approach. It's very much not an expansion on the core documentation, rather a guided way of getting your hands dirty with Docker in order to understand it fully. If you find it a little too hands-on, then https://www.manning.com/books/docker-in-action will more likely be for you!
