      This comment is coming from a product expert of BO. This is a best book for starters on understanding universe concepts. This book is written in simple to understand language. Good examples are quoted at various places. Good to see that the book is aimed at IDT tool which is a latest one, so this book is helpful for pro's as well who has worked on universe designer tool previously. Best part of this book is the explanation done using screenshots which makes it easier to understand concepts. would love to see few more real time complex business scenerios in the book to call it as a complete book. Thumps up to the author.
