You have to wonder what's going on if the book gets around to building its first SSIS package in Chapter 7: if it were a book for beginners, Chapter 2 or 3 would be a more appropriate place, and if it were a book for intermediate or advanced SSIS users, this introductory material would not be needed at all. The beginner who persevered through Chapters 1-6, learning about the upgrade procedure and the new features of the 2012 release (revised syntax of XML-format SSIS package files, anyone?), gets to load a text file into a database - and then, without a single transformation explained, is asked to implement parent-child packages, and execute them with T-SQL (!) and C# (!!). With this, core SSIS training is over, and the book moves on to more advanced or niche topics like CDC, "fuzzy" transformations and DQS, administration and performance.
It is only those more advanced topics, found in Part III, which can make this book worth a look. (The upgrade-and-new-features stuff of Chapters 3-5 can be found online). Although I did consider hiring an assassin to go after the author of Chapter 10 - when talking about SSIS 2012, it is very important to be clear about the differences between package deployment model and project deployment model, and that chapter fails this test like there's no tomorrow - the problem is not really with the individual chapters, but with lopsided, incomplete nature of their sum.
Dial M for "Microsoft Press, you sure dropped the ball with this one".
A great book indeed.
