Ich habe dieses Buch (obwohl nur Schulenglisch) in 3 Abenden durchgearbeitet. Dieses Buch hat mir ein tieferes Verständnis für assoziative Analysen gegeben, sowie in qlikview..
1/2 Punkt Abzug da sich zum Teil Themen wiederholen oder fehlen (z.B. qlikview als Alternative zu Excel Repotsammlungen), ein weiterer 1/2 Punkt Abzug für den Druck (Print on demand by amazon), da die Grafiken kaum lesbar waren.

"This book essentially focuses on "What and Why" of QlikView and strategic "How-to" questions..... Tactical "How-to" questions are answered very well by the various blogs, the QlikCommunity apart from the Reference Manuals. I have not attempted to replace or reproduce what the QlikView Reference Manuals and other QlikTech documents/presentations which are being made available recently."
This orientation of the book is what disappointed me. I was looking for "tactical how-to's" as a practitioner. I can go onto the blogs, QlikCommunity and reference manuals for answers, but was hoping to find it all synthesized in one place, in a book, this book.
Given author's cited number of implementations and experience, it was hoped he would share the "tips and tricks" and practical implementation insights. But instead, we get an overview and exposition about how great QlikView is, and how it is the greatest thing for the "data analytics community" since sliced bread; many of the why's thereof but not how to actually "slice the bread."
Maybe it is just me, being oriented towards writing and editing, but I found the prose to be a bit stiff, stilted and not fluid, and an effort to follow. The author is apparently not a native English speaker and thus not as well versed on vernacularism, and this is compounded by attempts to use big words to sound sophisticated, and at the same time too formal and correct. I found myself editing as I read along--thus it was a difficult read for me--but that is me.
The first part of the book, "QlikView and Enterprise Needs" adds little insight and is mostly a recount of the obvious and what is in public domain. I feel it added little to the book but bulk. The meat of the book is in the second and third parts, which are quite good as a comprehensive overview.
It is a shame. If the author, who obviously has a wealth of experience in this space, had chosen to, and confined himself to, provide a "Tactical How-to" book for the practitioner instead, it could have been a seminal work. His synthesized insights as an experienced practitioner who has 150-to-180 implementations under his belt would have been most valuable and instructive--readers want to benefit from his experience, and he should freely share the same.
Worth buying? Maybe, to get a focused discourse on QlikView, if the $40 price is no object--this it does. But to learn the practical aspects of QlikView implementation, we still need to go somewhere else--hit the blogs, QlikCommunity and reference manuals for help, as the author states.
In summary, whether the book is worth buying all depends upon what you are expecting to gain from this book. It is the most comprehensive and focused third-party book on QlikView available to date. One thing to note, there is scant mention of Tibco Spotfire, Tableau and the other competitors in this space--but then, this is a book on QlikView.
