So why only 4 stars? Two reasons.
First one is lack of any references or sources of statements. Book is full of statements like "Business analyst spend on average 40 percent of their time for testing-related activities." I wonder how Emrach is so sure about that? I would like to have sources on which author based such statements.
Second reason is less tangible. Book is rather short, and that's a good thing, but I'm afraid that for someone who is less experienced many things could be still unclear. The book lacks explanations why something should be done in particular way. I consider myself as an expert and those things are obvious for me, but others can have hard time connecting the dots.
This introduction brings me to the harsh conclusion that you will not find anything that hasn't been said or written elsewhere in that book.That's why only 4 stars.
Nevertheless this is still good book that summarizes many aspects of BA work in one place. Even for experts, who can refresh memory a little bit, and confirm that their methods and views are still valid.
