It is a very complete, deep, smart book that cover all the most important steps in BW implementation. There is not too much left to explain.
The rest you can search the forums for things like COPA for example.

Important topic of Logistics Extraction is not cover well and in fact made confusing in the tiny chapter. So I would recommend to have another source of learning simultaneously especially for SAP R/3 datasource extraction.For some of the stuff, I could not succeed while practicing, e.g: Error Stack configuration.

Hey , this was one of the best books i came across, although you ll have to use Google a lot and also those sap libraries, but this book will give you best guidance, you need to have a server access, you can learn all bw by yourself in a just 4-6 month max. And that too with practical exposure.

I`ve read the rook through. And what I can say that it is a very good book, but not for those who want to start learning BW from scratch or they need some additioanl help, especially when ABAP coding is mentioned.
