Book reviews aren't easy and it's always hard to tell if you're telling the reader anything they can't learn from Amazon. The comments on Amazon have to be taken with a grain of salt, as should my review of course. We're in the age of multi author books where multi-author used to be two, now it's five, or ten, or one per chapter (which is how the exam prep book that I worked on this year was done), so it was interesting to talk to someone who actually did the whole book themselves. It really is a decent book, just didn't quite have the bare metal down to the lowest level kind of power detail I would have really enjoyed, and probably don't know enough to write! Bren Newman has had a book on replication due out for over a year, not sure if it will make it to print or not, but I suspect it might be that kind of super detail book I'd enjoy. We'll see.
Here's the link to the article: Replication Book
