Review of the hardback: '... an excellent overview of a rich and complex research program in the analysis, specification, and design of information systems ... will be of interest to researchers in information systems methodologies. In educational settings, it will be useful ancillary reading in a project-oriented course on information systems design, and might be the central text, if the course in fact adapts the MEASUR methodology.'
