This isn't a technical book that talks in detail about how to solve design problems. It's a book that tries to explain what a BI project is and why it is so complex.
Even if it isn't a book for developers, the target audience is very broad and includes dw architects, project managers and executives.
The book structure is well designed: each chapter covers a different stage of BI projects using the same structure which includes useful practical things like project flow charts, project roles and risks.
It is essentially a methodology with some technical details, but don't look in it for complete, in-depth technical discussions, or for innovative contents.
For example, dimensional modelling only takes two short paragraphs that are absolutely insufficient to teach a designer how to use it in practical situations.
Even with these limitations this is a good and useful book, and it's clear that the two authors (Shaku Atre e Larissa T. Moss) have a lot of experience and a good understanding of BI projects.

I purchased this book after reviewing other feedbacks thinking it would provide a very clear and concise roadmap to deliver BI. Whilst it was OKish as a general high level overview, overall I was disappointed with the book.

After being involved with BI for many years, I found the book missed some very important considerations, fell short in other areas previously discussed and some topics I found confusing.
