I work in the IT industry and I am back in school to finish my Bachelors Degree. This book was selected for the class with the same name. The only way I can see this book being useful is with an instructor who utilizes the material for topical information. The information is horribly out of date. What's worse is that publisher has mashed together 20+ years of computer developments. Some stuff is semi-current while other stuff is simply historical by now. For a book published in 2008, you'd expect at least one reference to cloud computing. You might also expect the word "torrent" to appear in the text and it does not. BitTorrent makes up over 40% of Internet traffic. The chapter 7 case study is based on a business problem from 1997. The book also makes attempts at sounding authoritative with some of the most vague areas of the computing industry. This isn't the only textbook to do so. This book should be put out to pasture and replaced with something more current. Hopefully the 6th edition is the last and teachers will pass over this selection. I don't normally write reviews. However, I am hoping some teacher reads this review and thinks better of tormenting his/her students. I am sick of leaving snarky comments on my assignments about how CD's are no longer a relevant file transfer media.
