The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volume 1, is the first volume in a three-volume series. At 186 pages, it is a short book, and its brevity is consistent with its elementary (yet ironically repetitive) treatment of the subject: for the topics that are covered, the book could have been shorter. Those with experience in data analysis and visualization, even if GIS neophytes, won't find much to sink their teeth into: most chapters deal with quite elementary concepts ("Mapping the Most and Least", "Ma ...more

Addressing either one of those would cause me to award a fourth star, and both would earn an enthusiastic five.

If you're just getting into GIS, you should be picking this up. Even if you're not going to be using ArcGIS

There is a lot more content here than I absorbed on the first reading. I kept wanting them to define layer in terms of database tables like they did data tables. Lots of examples to illustrate all the basic uses of GIS and methods of presentation of data.

Fine for an introduction to GIS Analysis, but completely useless without the tutorial and the software. Make sure you have all three.
