Skip the first section and the content is excellent

I was a bit skittish about buying this book based on some of the negative reviews. Having played around with the software but still having alot of questions, I wanted to judge for myself so I picked it up at the bookstore. If you can make it through the first section, which is basically fluff, there is some excellent content in the later parts of the book, particularily in the sections on Office use with SharePoint and SQL maintenance of the databases, which is not covered much at all in the other SharePoint books out today. My guess is that many of the other reviewers may have stopped reading after the first few chapters, and I can't really blame them. I would agree that it is better to skip them and going straight to the good stuff.

Title is a bit misleading.

i've always been a fan of Jeff Richter; i make sure i go to his talks/conference whenever he's in town(Chicago). his discussion of the clr is really a mind-opening for me. i've heard him one time talked about assemblies and manifest on one of his seminars and this book really helped me digest those notes i wrote. like my title said, it's another must have! Thanks Jeff and i hope you continue to write more books. Goodluck to you.

Software Engineering - An Intro to Object Oriented Analysis

This textbook proved a very useful and informative. It is a great reference for understanding the Unified Process and Detailed Design topics. The POS example used in the book helps solidify concepts taught in the book. The design patterns, UML and other topics effectively teach great techniques of Analysis and Design. I used this book as a textbook for a course, and it was a great reference and teaching tool. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn Object Oriented Analysis and Design.
