I went back through the last few years, and on average day 16 is my breaking point. I've never even started a puzzle after day 20.

The world of Terraform has changed a lot even since I wrote the book. But I feel it is still the best resource available for someone wishing to improve their skills with Terraform. The HashiCorp documentation is great, but scattered. Other books and video courses don't go into enough depth. The reason this book is valuable is because it is highly opinionated and providers the reader a distinct learning path to becoming an advanced Terraform user.
I hope this answers your question.

If you do find some situation where Terraform doesn't quite do what you need it to do, there are always bandaids like the External https://registry.terraform.io/providers/hashicorp/external/latest/docs or Shell https://registry.terraform.io/providers/scottwinkler/shell/latest providers for Terraform.
