Amazon.com just posted my four star review of Programming Amazon EC2 by Jurg van Vliet and Flavia Paganelli. O'Reilly provided a free review copy. From the review:
Because this is a short book, I'll write a short review. Programming Amazon EC2 (PAE) explains how to use certain elements of Amazon Web Services to deploy applications in Amazon's cloud infrastructure. The discussion centers on the authors' experiences deploying live, production Web sites (like Kulitzer) using AWS. I found this approach refreshing and novel, because it reads like a playbook for recreating similar infrastructure for the reader's own purposes.
