EXCELLENT reference


I totally love this little book! I love how the author cross-references with the Regular Expressions book, it makes getting into the gory details much easier.
This book is perfect for people like me who are always forgetting the little details about regular expressions.
If you program in Perl, PHP, Python, C or Java, I can't recommend this book enough! This book will definitely pay for itself quickly.

Great ideas and an easy-read book!


I had to buy this book for a design class in college and now that I am out of college, I still use it for ideas on projects and inspiration. Robin writes in a very easy to understand language and gives you lots and lots of pictures to illustrate what she is saying... the WHOLE book is full of colored photos! I liked this book so much, I decided to purchase Robin Williams Web Design Workshop.

Title: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit : Expert Methods for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses

Wide, complete, and a bit heavy


Following the path of the previous publication, The DWH Toolkit, the authors devote a large effort about dimensional modeling, but help keeping bound to it, and face wider subjects and issues. The structure underlying chapters, based on a project lifecycle, is very interesting, and surely quite useful to people involved in dwh projects. In spite of many criticisms that have been addressed to Kimball's methods, I believe that this book has a general validity, and can apply, in some ways, to any sort of dwh you are to implement, even if that is not a handbook to fix specific technical issues. It can be also a good textbook to improve general culture about the subject, but in this case I should advise to read it together with The DWH Toolkit, unless you have yet a strong background about dimensional analysis. References to hints and instances add a pleasing value , and avoid too high abstraction. Just a remark: similarly to the previously mentioned book by the same author, the weight of the whole explanation is significantly increased by the inflated language, which many times makes a thorough understanding of the text a bit more hard than the actual complexity of the subject.
