I'm using this book for a graduate course as a student. I've worked in field of IT for 25+ years, so I'm no newbie. This book takes topics that are straightforward and makes them extremely complex and theoretical. The liner notes indicate it was translated into English, which would explain some of the awkward phrasing. You'll read a passage, re-read it again and if you do figure out what they are saying you are left to wonder, "why would you say it that way?" Answer, because it was translated! Strange wording, run on sentences, overly theoretical...can you tell I don't like this book!

Other reviewer was correct that it reads like a run -on journal article, replete with citations and examples...most of which do not help.

Avoid it if you can, but if you must use it, find other sources to help explain the concepts and take comfort in fact that in the real world of IT, it's not this hard! If you are new to the field, hang in there, don't let this book scare you off!

This book is required for my class or I would not have purchased it. I did buy the Kindle version in hopes of saving some money. Unfortunately, this book is not supported by my e-Ink Kindle (get error message "Unavailable for Download The item is not compatible with this device."). I can still read it on my Android devices but not as easy on the eyes and e-Ink.

Maybe the Italian version is better, but this book has you going all over to find their referenced examples. The translation is terrible and could possibly be the worst book that I have ever picked up..... Shame that I needed it for school.

I am using this textbook for a class this semester. This text is not reader friendly. Just because the topic is complex does not have to mean the book as to be hard to consume. This book is horribly dense. The images of models are seldom explained. My class hates this book. The book reads like journal articles pasted together to get enough information for a book and I sincerely regret the purchase. You will find yourself reading the same sentence over and over again with still little understanding of the intent of the author. The book throws around terms that it assumes the reader should be familiar with...but then if you were familiar with the terms, you wouldn't need their book. It is a really awful book. I will keep looking. If you were unfortunate enough to pick up this book because your teacher was looking for a text on data warehousing, you have my sympathies. Here are some tips. 1) Use other sources of information to supplement the text. The text alone is useless. 2) Read it early in the morning. The book is really capable of putting you to sleep at any time after 12Noon. 3) Find a data warehousing guru to decipher the examples. Put him on speed dial though. You'll need him after every page. For educators, there are no author's resources except a hard to find manual. You are on your own. You have been warned.
