Well it is a good book for beginners like me. But it does not cover the main processes. I did not think that GIS is such a complex software to use. You can not learn how to use GIS from this book but you can have a basic idea what is GIS, what is the meanings of some terms, why it is used, where it is used, etc. As every book it has pros and cons. About pros it is easy to understand, cons it is too short and does not encompass everything.
If you have certain knowledge about GIS skip this book. If you are a totally beginner it may be helpful to understand how to use this tool. The quality of the book is awful as all the pages fall loose after a while.
Because of the date it was published, the technology referenced is a bit out of date, but the processes and policies discussed are still very reliant.
