4.0 out of 5 stars Explains Concepts Well, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're new to the numerous standards for the Semantic Web, this book does an excellent job of putting each of the pieces in context, building up the overall picture with a well-thought-out sequence. It also tackles some misconceptions you might have about schemas and ontologies if, like me, you have some experience with object-oriented programming.

My one complaint with the book is that the production process seems to have been a bit slapdash: it has a surprisingly high number of typos, there are a few tortous sentences in dire need of attention from an editor, and a lot of the diagrams looked pretty amateurish. (I read the ebook version; perhaps the diagrams look better in the print edition, but it seems unlikely - it wasn't a case of poor reproduction of figures. They were legible and clear enough, they just looked like they needed a graphic designer to spend a day making them look less ugly.) I found these issues sufficiently intrusive that I can't give this 5 stars, but none of this detracts from the usefulness of the book, so I would still recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good informative book, 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Semantic Web is a very important to understanding the increased exploitation of the vast ocean of data potentially available on the WWW can be achieved. This book is a very good reference for understanding the importance of the Semantic Web. I have found it easy to follow the sensible pace it takes you through to comprehend the various key constructs of the Semantic Web and the International standards that support the concept. Highly recommended reading.
