A wonderful surprise

When I buy technical books I hope for something that is logically laid out, to the point and understandable. I don't want to be insulted with geek humor. I don't want to be buried in jargon. And I certainly don't want to have the author use terms that won't be defined for a couple of chapters yet. I consider it a plus if I don't count my time in pots of coffee per chapter, just to keep my attention focused.

Considering the tedious nature of most writing in the information technology field, having such minimal expectations met is enough for me to rate a book highly. When the rare gem of a book such as Boiko's "Content Management Bible" comes along I no longer have enough stars to offer. On a scale of one to five, this book is at least an eight. The writing is not only competent but actually a pleasure to read. Boiko doesn't just convey information in a straight forward, easily comprehended manner, he makes the field of content management interesting.

This is not a cookbook of recipies or technology specific fixes but an incredible overview of the field, its problems, pitfalls and gotchas as well as its wisdom and growing edges. It is a high level treatment that empowers the mind set to start thinking of specific solutions. I got this book thinking it was just another dry set of instructions but found it inspires me to think more deeply and creativily in my work.

Boike makes excellent use of (cheesy but effective) illustrations and flow charts as well as offering an excellent and logical progression of information. If you need to manage content for a single medium or across multiple media you will be better prepared by digesting this book.
