I think this book suffers from split personality disorder. It tries to be a high level overview and provide implementation details. I don't think it does either very well. Espesially problematic are transitions from overview to details - not enough background is given to understand the details, new concepts introduced without any explanation.
Also, I think this book is becoming a bit dated.

This is a BPEL centric business approach which I really like. I think that the market is waking up for the concepts that this book discusses. The main issue is that many companies have not recognized the major contribution of standardizing business process modeling.

This was a great book that provided a broad introduction to SOA along with drill-down into BPEL, XPATH, etc.
A great addition to my technical library.
