    These two quotes exactly describe the book. It is VERY GOOD for a BA since it not only provides them with the ideas of BPM and graph-based development but also gives a lot of clues for future reading (You can get extra knowledge on how to initiate a project, who to evaluate the project, how to close the project etc.). But, from the other hand for the developers it doesn't provide necessary information o how to develop real-world jBPM-based applications. The example given in the book only uses jBPM management console to control process execution. This may be quite helpful for an admin but isn't that good for a real developer. Personally, I would recommend developers to use original JBoss documentation for jBPM at http://www.jboss.com/products/jbpm/docs
