I knew nothing about Docker before reading this book and I found it a good introduction to the subject.  
There is a whole lot more to learn about containers, for example, it sidesteps Kubernetes (and rightly so, seeing as how that is a whole subject on its own).  That said, it is a solid starting point.

Marina,
We definitely intend for the book to be accessible to those who are comfortable:

* in a Unix-shell such as bash on Linux or OSX
* running and reading simple programs
* with the concepts and some light usage of virtual machines

Joe - we're very happy to hear you thought it was a good introduction.
