Exceptional .... and wordy, 6 Sept. 2004
This book covers just about anything you might need to know to get started in content management.
The main difficulty is that the author--or his editor--doesn't seem to be able to decide whom he is talking to. As a result, the work is much too long; whichever background you come from (e.g., project management, database management, system analysis or others) you'll find that about a third of the work could have been cut without any loss of coverage. Add to this a series of fully superfluous (and silly) digressions (e.g. about metadata), a rather mechanical--and resultingly redundant--construction of sections in a significant number of chapters (i.e., "Think/Plan/Integrate"), and you start having thoughts about how many trees might have been saved.
No question, however, about the author's knowledge and competence and, in the end, the wisdom buried in there is certainly worth going after.
