Comments about oreilly IBM Cognos BI v10.2 Administration Essentials:

I found it very basic, with no specific information on 10.2 version (active reports, dynamic query mode... logs, no information or advice in load balancing...)
Good to have a quick overview (<100 pages without summary and index)
