Industry Reviews

"Overall, I found the book to be enjoyable and informative, with lots of references and pointers to areas of interest. The variety of topics discussed within the book encourages the reader to read outside of their core specialisms." (BCS, 1 November 2010)"

...an essential read for all Semantic Web practitioners-from CIOs to CTOs and architects to managers...a must-read for upper management." (IEEE Distributed Systems Online, August 2005)
