Item description for Understanding Enterprise SOA by Eric Pulier...
Understanding Enterprise SOA gives technologists and business people an invaluable and until now missing integrated picture of the issues and their interdependencies. You will learn how to think in a big way, moving confidently between technology- and business-level concerns. Written in a comfortable, mentoring style by two industry insiders, the book draws conclusions from actual experiences of real companies in diverse industries, from manufacturing to genome research. It cuts through vendor hype and shows you what it really takes to get SOA to work.
Intended for both business people and technologists, the book reviews core SOA technologies and uncovers the critical human factors involved in deploying them. You will see how enterprise SOA changes the terrain of EAI, B2B commerce, business process management, "real time" operations, and enterprise software development in general.

Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding Enterprise SOA?
High level, very repetitive and too verbose. Dec 28, 2007
I am a J2EE developer working in a telco company. I was looking for a good introductory book to SOA. Browsing this site web pages i found "Enterprise SOA" book. Comments are good it is published from manning and it has only 280 pages.
I wish i would not bought it. Contents are too high level, it is very repetitive and too verbose. Authors use verbose scenarios even to describe very easy concepts forcing you to read about 25 lines for something that someone else would have explained with 5 lines. Very detailed diagrams promise interesting contents but they are only there to support banal concepts.
The book says it's targeted "for both business people and technologists" I'm afraid it's only for business people who don't want to be bothered with IT medium-level details.
I suggest developers to skip this book and go for something else.
A used-car-salesman's book on SOA Aug 6, 2007
Just about every technology cliché' out there is used in the "used-car-salesman's" version of a book on SOA (sorry if I offend any used car salesman here). The argument here is that SOA solves every ill. Not true. Only good, sound, application of the proper technology where it is needed will do that, not SOA alone. These guys could have written a great book if they had only refrained from hyperbole.
managers only Mar 31, 2007
I'm amazed this book received so many good reviews, the only reason I can see is that the reviewers are all Managers or it's a sign of a skewed process.
Anyway the books own description should give it away "Intended for both business people and technologists". What are the chances of that being true? I'd say none.
Basically this is a Managers book with all the consultant doublespeak you'd expect. It's written from such a high level it will give you nose bleed and makes tons of assumptions that only a Manager would buy into. If you are a techie and buy this book you will waste your time at best and learn misleading/incorrect info at worse.
A waste of paper Nov 20, 2006
Perhaps the authors or the publishers friends wrote some of these reviews. Don't waste your money on this one, move on to another book. Seldom have I been more disappointed between the description, reviews, and what I found in a book than this one. I only wish this site allowed a rating of zero stars.
SOA made plain Aug 3, 2006
This book examines SOA from all perspectives, technical and business. It mentions both pros and cons summing up why it's one of the greatest moves forward in IT industry. IT people can easily relate to situations covered in this title.
