"The Missing Link: Hendler and Allemang's new book is exactly what our industry is looking for. We have many introductory books, and some detail compilations of papers but very little to help a practitioner move up their experience curve from novice to journeyman ontologist. The book is very readable; the examples are plentiful and accessible. I've already begun recommending students and clients to pre-order this book.--David McComb, President, Semantic Arts, Inc.
