What you think of this book depends on the purpose for which you are using it. I was studying for the MS Exam 70-463 and found it to be fairly complete but missing some critical details, the subjects of which were included in the practice exam questions.

If you are looking for a general overview of Master Data Management, this is not it. This is a tutorial on Microsoft's tool for instituting Master Data Management. It does do a fairly good job of covering the subject of MDM, but it's context is MS's software.

If you are a person who:
1. is interested in learning about Microsoft MDS and what it can do.
2. you have a system capable of running the example code
3. you are SQL literate and comfortable with its vocabulary and syntax
then this is a really good way of understanding what this product can do for your organization or your client's organization.

If you are studying for the exam and want a tertiary text that walks you thru the entire process of establishing, maintaining, and using the product, this is a good book.

No matter what, If you are in management of any but the smallest of companies, you need to understand this subject matter. There is a book that you should read first before reading this or one concerning the same subject matter. That book is 'Business Analytics for Managers: Taking Business Intelligence Beyond Reporting (Wiley & Sas Business Series) '

This is a very complete and well-written book. I have the first edition and the new material in the second edition made it well-worth the price. The thing I like most about the book is that there is an example project that is carried through all the chapters so by the end you have seen an entire MDS project built. There are also code examples that teach you to do each operation through the Web Services API in addition to the UI. The explanation is much easier to understand than the Microsoft documentation
