Edit: I''ve now finish the whole book. See below for an update.

While I''m only about to finish chapter 2, the other reviews here on Amazon have crushed all hope that I have. The book is a constant stream of acronyms (oftentimes undefined), overly wordy descriptions of obvious facts (such as different people having different decision styles), repetition of the same points, lists and figures that neither summarize nor illuminate, and references that were clearly added after the fact in a revision -- you can often guess around what time various lists were made longer and descriptions made more verbose by references to multimedia, virtual reality, intranets, etc.

I think that this is the kind of book that an expert in the field would see as complete in that it tries to cover practically everything in the history of BI, but it''s totally impenetrable (and demotivational) for the novice who will get bogged down in endless terminology, names of products, and sheer verbosity.

I honestly feel bad leaving such a negative review, but it''s my hope that any instructor considering this book will not inflict its cost upon their students. Frankly, this book is in dire need of an editor to pare it down to about 1/4 of its size.

Update after reading the whole book:

The chapters related to operations management / decision science were interesting. These chapters are more hands on, such as how to use linear programming. That being said, it still continues the trend of introducing tons of concepts without defining them (such as "markov models" being mentioned multiple times but never explained -- or at least it wasn''t in the index).

Overall, I''ve already forgotten most of the content simply due to the density of the book. Many of the case studies should be completely removed, as they''re basically advertisements for companies: some of them even end in "company so-and-so _anticipates_ that it will result in X" -- the study doesn''t actually reflect how the solution worked out in practice!

Alyssa''s review describe the book 100%. Each chapter talks about some aspect of Decision Support System (DSS) like this: DSS component X is great, example of company that uses component X, some vendors of component X. Rent if you have too, just don''t buy the book.

Okay as a primer. Some of the chapters go into a lot of technicalities but it''s hard to follow due to the writing style and because there is not enough explanations for things. Ironic, because the chapters are really long. Oh, the case studies or little snippets about actual companies REALLY suck. So generic and worthless like it was written for a middle school homework assignment. I mean have some real, detailed explanations and examples. Almost a waste of money.

I rented the online book for a class and the format is horrible. It looks like someone scanned the text from the book and added as an online version of the book. I have a Fire HD 10 and I am not able to enlarge the text without the text running off the screen. Highlighting is very difficult in this book. I''ve rented and purchased several books and have not had issues like I''m having with this book.

To echo the sentiment: extremely verbose, lots of repetition, endless acronyms, conflicting information and... you end up not really learning anything. This is basically a huge, expensive brick of definitions that any online source could one up EASILY. Definitely rent this one.
