This is a Well-written book on the latest version (R2) of the Microsoft Business Intelligence tools
Additionally, it has two important features that really make it stand out:
1. It explains the whole set of Microsoft BI tools and MS's vision for BI
2. It explains trends in BI such as how to integrate unstructured data & structured data
The scope of this book is wider than the usual, tool-centric book. That makes it extremely valuable. It's relatively easy to obtain information on tools. It's much more difficult to obtain information on using the right tool for the right job. It's also difficult to obtain simple and comprehensive information on how Microsoft's tools relate to each other.
Finally, this is a great book for many audiences. Both the new and experienced developer community will benefit from the breath of the information. They will also benefit by seeing how the MS BI tools relate to each other and to glimpsing Microsoft's BI vision.
These last two features, tool integration and vision, make this a great book for the IT manager or executive. It provides them an overview of Microsoft BI and also provides additional material to pursue that overview.
