Frequently Asked Questions about Inside Citrix

Last year, in May 2016 to be a bit more precise I published my first book named: Inside Citrix – The FlexCast Management Architecture. Since than I have had a ton of positive feedback and reactions, through Twitter, facebook, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, you name it. It goes without saying that all this made me a very happy man. Next to the feedback I also received a bunch of questions, ranging from the amount of books sold to how applicable the content is today with the rapid release cycle Citrix is currently maintaining. In this (short) post I’ll try to answer all of the most frequently asked questions throughout the last six months , so I can also refer people back to this post in the (near) future.

How many books have you sold up till now? — For those of you who are wondering, I’ve sold around 830 copies so far — A combination of paperbacks and Kindles (over 200). This averages, give or take 90 books per month. Wow! I mean, it’s a book on Citrix, which has a much smaller ‘fan’ base than let’s say Microsoft and/or VMware, and even for Citrix it’s a very specific topic that I’m highlighting. It’s also definitely not an install and configure manual, one of the most popular formats out there. What’s also great is that I’m still getting one or multiple orders on a (almost) daily basis!

I would like to order a copy, where can I get/oder one? — The book is only available through the (well-known) Amazon channels, both paperback and Kindle. Or just go here.
