BPM, not to be confused with PBS, MPG, or MPH. There is not chance of that because you never forget your book on Business Process Modeling, not because it blows you away, but because of how many naps you take while reading it. The subject is very boring, not for your everyday programmer.

It takes a different kind of developer to love BPM, and to take the time to learn BPEL, WSFL, XLANG, or YAWL, and to do research into Petri Nets and Pi-Calculus.

But there is a need, and to be honest, even though I was bored, I know that this was a very good book explaining the technologies that are out there, the BPM Design Patterns, The "languages" and some examples using them, and a good amount of diagrams showing "workflow".

So, if you are one of the lucky few who either love BPM or just have a job at Filenet, then this is a great book for you to pick up.
