The book is a pretty good book and gets the broad strokes correct and gives the reader good information the majority of the time. I am impressed how the latest edition is very up to date.
The book
does have some errors in it and does at times play to buzzwords. When the book panders to buzzwords it usually ends up making an incorrect summary or point.
