5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping it simple, succinctly, 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Corr & Stagnitto have applied the essence of Agile - process light, rapid prototyping - to the issue of Data Model design in an intuitive and easy to follow manner.

The beauty of the approach for me, as is outlined with remarkable clarity in the book, is the bringing together of the business users in the process, and early in the process at that to help derive business insight.

Well worth a read. As someone who has faced that "process gap" - where you need knowledge of the business and of good data modelling design - at the same time - this provides an easy first step approach to addressing that issue.

The book itself provides a number of well thought out examples to illustrate the approach as well as a library of further resources and links - including to Lawrence's own site where you can download the templates referred to within.

4.0 out of 5 stars Griffin MyPhones Kids Headphones, 31 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All in all very happy with the product. The headphones are well made and to date, seem robust enough. I actually purchased two, one for my 7yr old and another pair for my 5yr old.

My 7yr old is particularly fond of them, and they've been employed from iPod to Nintendo almost constantly. This is partially a result of their slightly better fit on her head but it would difficult to make a single set that could adjust infintely.

The material in the earpieces give a comfortable fit and good seal but my youngest complains that they can leave his "ears all sweaty" - an alternative velour type material may be an option worth pursuing.

Still that aside - solid for star product.
