Just because you have experience in BI and own a successful company (well done by the way) does not mean you can write a good book and this most certainly applies here. From the patronising waffle about impressing sales executives and financial directors to the random way the chapters evolve with no real structure, to the introduction of IBM’s version of MDX with no explanation, just the occasional sketchy example… this sucks/.
No wonder Cognos has such a learning curve if all the books are as bad as this one. Say what you like about Microsoft but the amount of decent books, documentation and fora on the MS BI stack and SQL server is excellent.
I am half way through this and losing the will to live.

As one reviewer mentioned, there seems to be a bit more helpful info for administrators (which I am), though not much in the way of things I've actually looked for in this book.
I've been doing Database development for 10+ years and Business Intelligence for 8+ years, so I'm not a beginner. In my opinion, this was a waste of $45.
