- Offers invaluable advice based on the authors' experience so that you don't need to re-invent the wheel or make the same mistakes they made (and subsequently learned from).
- Most useful for Project Managers/DBAs; less so for Data Modellers.
- I purchased this book on the assumption that it offered a comprehensive treatment of all stages of the Data Warehouse project lifecycle (as the cover would lead you to believe). However, it does not offer a comprehensive treatment of Dimensional Modelling. For this, the book actually assumes you have read Kimball's former book - "The Data Warehouse Toolkit - The Complete Guide to Dimensional Modeling" (which provides a full treatment and practical examples for several industry sectors).
- I did not like the writing-style. If the authors would have omitted all text like "we believe.." and "in our experience..." I'm sure the book wouldn't have used 800 pages.
This book has remained by my side throughout the project lifecycle, giving great guidance and pointers to help manage the project optimally.
However, if you are responsible for Data Modelling, you will also need to buy "The Data Warehouse Toolkit", thereby doubling the overall cost.
By the why: I would like to recommend this book to NCR's Rob Armstrong.

I find this book very difficult to read and understand. It tells you a great deal about what you're supposed to do to build a warehouse but does not tell you how to do it.Published on May 7, 2007 by Duc Vuong
