It is a book written for dbas, and as such tends to go over what agile and persistence frameworks are. Sadly, the book is also probably eight years out of date at this point, making comparisons between Castor and Osage a bit pointless.

There is some relevant material, but mostly in the regression framework and multiple sandboxes that can be set up. This book really needs a new revision out, including a section on Nosql.
Ugh. What can I say? The subject matter is potentially very interesting and is definitely relative to my work; however, the book is written as though it is a college text and the endless self-promoting references (parenthetical, not footnotes, at that) are distracting. I feel this topic could have been presented in a more interesting manner. I can force myself to plow through it, but it sure could stand to be more captivating and less dry.
