Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations of IT Service Management Based on ITIL® V3 (English version)?
Don't waist your money May 23, 2008
This is one of the worst written books I have ever read. The book is a tough read. Information is just thrown at you like verbal(allthough written) diarrea.
Good to find an ITIL V3 publication I can share Apr 21, 2008
Most books of this type are pretty dry and hard to read. It's nice to see one written that I can share with my fellow IT and business execs and have some hope that they will actually get something out of it. I did find 1 or 2 editing errors in the book but otherwise found it very well written in common language. I plan to have my whole staff read sections of it in preparation for their foundations training & certification (which will be news to them).
Five books or one ? Jan 2, 2008
ITIL v3 is defined in 5 new volumes, whereas the summary from Van Haren is squeezed into a single 320 page text.
Of course, you are not going to get the level of detail that you'd have if you purchase all 5 books, but if you want someone to have picked out the "best bits" then consider getting this book.
Perhaps the best attribute for the book is that it strips away a lot of the superfluous text that surround some of the new concepts. That in itself is a worthwhile reason to consider getting it. I would have liked to have seen more original diagrams, most of the pictures are taken directly from the original ITIL v3 volumes.
There is a full 30 page glossary at the back of the book that is based on the official ITIL v3 Glossary.
They've done it again! Nov 28, 2007
Jan van Bon/Ivo van Haren and their team have again delivered a great foundations book - a standard that deserves its place in every ITIL practitioner's library.
