Comments from buyers...
The fine print: yes, I get the other kind too...but is this editorial
freedom to omit great or what? Actually, I've had no substantially negative response (but many spelling/CapitALization corrections and one factual correction) from readers literate enough to string together a meaningful sentence.
Here's some sample reader comment:
Excellent, practical advice on how to get the cost out of IT Operations.
Your wealth of real-world experience is evident with your insightful comments.
20 Something Years Experience in IT show up well.
- If my boss had read this before we got into SAP; I'd still have a job and so would he
- Thirty dollars that will save your company thousands
- An original contribution to the inquiry into the underwhelming performance of
the IT practitioners, with manichean but practical prescriptions on how to rise
- It is unfortunate that the very executives that need to be exposed to the
central argument of this book might be deterred by its (somewhat technical) title
- Whether you like it or not, every IT executive and consultant should add this
perspective (Murph's) to their analytical arsenal
- A joycean stream of conciousness on how to avoid the Marne-like trenches of
IT. In 1918 Marne, after four years and a cost of hundreds of thousands of
lives, the armies were still, literally, exactly where they had started. [As comments
go this one's a personal fav rave! - Murph.]
- This book should have been titled " IT Senior Management for Dummies"; spend
the thirty bucks and give the book to your boss!
- Don't let the "UNIX" in the title make you pass (ignore) this book. Read the
first chapter, skim-read the rest if you like, but don't miss this passionate tome
on why and how to deliver sytems that meet the expectations of consumers.
I don't know who wrote this one
but I thought it pretty fair.
