    Review quote
    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
