What are Gorilla Guides?

Gorilla Guides are intended to help lead you through the technology jungle. They bring clarity to what can be an obscure market or solution and help you understand how a solution works and, more importantly, how it fits into your IT organization. The Gorilla Guide is designed to be your companion as you make the journey into new technologies and as you work to take your IT organization into the future.

Every Gorilla Guide includes a series of accompanying callouts that help bring context to the overall discussion without distracting you from the topic at hand. If you’re unfamiliar with a particular concept, you can choose to read a callout to learn more, or you can skip over the callout and continue learning.

We know that IT pros are pressed for time, so we make the Gorilla Guides accessible and easy to read. While the overall book length may vary, each book is broken down into easily consumable sections. Part of the reason that the Guides are so accessible is that they are written and edited by industry experts with deep subject matter expertise. When an author really knows the material, that fact comes through loud and clear in the Guide.
