I found this book difficult to use. The content is good, but the practice of having all the text then all the pictures does not work for me. The layout should be text, picture, text, picture, text, picture and so on, with just that text that relates to the picture associated with each picture.

After I read the book, I would say most of the content is good, but some of the content is not accurate and is conflicting with the statement in the developer's guide of version 8.1. It sounds to me this Redbook is written based on the understandings of stage usage listed in older version 7.5, and it does not reflect the up-to-date features of 8.1.

I am referring to specific paragraph in this book regarding to the usage of Lookup stage. This stage is widely used by DataStage developer community, and the statement should be at least synchronizing with the content in developer's guide.

I used to think IBM Red Books were great. Written by techies, for techies. This one is really frustrating. It's full of sales blurb. I'm trying to get hard information about how DataStage works and ways of configuring for optimum performance, and I'm having to wade my way through reams of text that is pasted straight from the glossy brochure. Page 21, for example, is 90% sales talk. Most of the people who read Red Books have already purchased the product.
