This book is a timely update to the corpus on systems development. It is comprehensive, but consumable and good for reference thanks to its clear and well-signposted layout. Copious and clear diagrams are another excellent feature. -- Heather Dunlop-Jones
Each chapter is easy to read and the big picture easy to see. This book will make 'just googling it' a rather expensive option for those who value their time. -- Angelina Samaroo
Information systems development encompasses such a broad range of topics and techniques, that it is hard to envisage a single book being able to provide comprehensive and consistent coverage of them. This book rises to the challenge and should be essential reading for all those involved in the discipline. -- Paul Turner
The book is extremely well structured, with separate sections for the various key stages in the overall process. Although it's worth reading all the way through at least once, it is also highly useful as a reference work because each section stands complete on its own. [...] a highly comprehensive and authoritative book; and one that would not be out of place on most technical reading lists. -- A P Sutcliffe
