2 words: GREAT book

This book did all I asked it too. It taught me the whole C programming language flawlessly. And when you're done with it, it's the best reference you can have. The expensive price and the limited amount of pages once gave me second thoughts but I was wrong. You get every dollar's worth with this one!

One of the nicest features are the timelines, graphical represenations of the history of people, computer models, etc.
If you have any interest in the history of the personal computer, this is a must read!

Title: Improving Data Warehouse and Business Information Quality: Methods for Reducing Costs and Increasing Profits
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Larry P. English
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent ideas for implementing a data quality program

The book is fantastic. English obviously has plenty of front line experience. He doesn't simply state the problem and offer suggestions. He empowers the reader to join the data quality movements by giving them the tools necessary to convince the decision makers that data quality is worth the investment. Chapter Seven, "Measuring Nonquality Information Costs," is worth the price of the book alone, because it gives us a solid ROI model to throw at the bean counters. The writing style is extremely accessable. The book is so well organized that it can be read straight through or employed as a reference.
