Exactly one month ago Niels and I published the VMware vSphere 6.5 Host Deep Dive and it is a major success. Within 30 days we sold over 4000 copies of the book. Building consistent high-performing ESXi hosts remains a strong focus point for the virtual community.
The attention for the book is overwhelming. The hashtag #HostDeepDive felt like it was trending. Tweets from around the world letting us know the book arrived, from Brasil to New Zealand.

Amazon awarded the book with many accolades, being the number one book in the network section and at one point it was in the top 25 of computer books overall. Quite an achievement! The absolute fantastic reviews help a lot. Thank you all for submitting a review!
Due to the popularity of the book, Amazon offered us help with creating an ebook version of the book. They put their professional team to work two weeks ago, and we expect to have it online soon.
