    Comments about oreilly Intelligent Document Capture with Ephesoft, 2nd Edition:

    If you are in dire need of a book that tackles the practicality of using Ephesoft under a limited time to produce results, then this is your guide. The first three chapters are stuffed with quick guides that are self explanatory to help you start putting your Ephesoft to good use in record time. The second half of the book also presents materials for the one that wants to apply Ephesoft in peculiar circumstances. Inasmuch as I never got to use that extra information, I understood it completely. That brings me to one of the highlights of the book. The mode of presentation is such that understanding comes easily. The information in this book is not embellished in so much grammar. It is not cryptic. I term it a grab-and-go book.

    The book requires no prior knowledge of using other software similar to it in its space. A full immersion into Ephesoft is what you get from chapter 1 onwards.

    Though not explicit, the book does have a "knowledge back" guarantee. I suggest it occupy a good place on your book shelf.
