    I bought this book years ago and never finished reading it. The fact that it took me over 5 years to read it prevents me from giving it a higher review.

    It's not a bad book though. It introduces Jenkins well. And gives you tips on what to look for. It covers different plugins (mainly for Java.) I would have liked more advanced material like things you can do with the Groovy scripting console or how to scale Jenkins. At this point, the biggest problem is that the book is over 5 years old and Jenkins has evolved a lot in that time.

    I give this book 7 out of 10 horseshoes.
    With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
