Not as bad as all the others!
21 September 2009
Lots of ideas, and the exposition is always clear. Kaushik writes quite well, his style is plain, straight and to the point, and easy to follow. He has the ring of authority, it helps that he is pleasantly sceptical about many things.
However like almost all IT books it's quite repetitive...heaven knows why IT writers have to say things 3 times always. Make your presentations attractive, OK. But 3 times, at length, in different chapters? Segment, OK. But why tell us so very many times? And on it goes.
It's genuinely a good piece of work, but could be so much better if he disciplined himself to keep the same content, but say it in 40% less space.
