Has anyone (particularly AXD301/ENGINE/OTP folks) read the following book?

  "Robust Communications Software: Extreme Availability, Reliability
and Scalability for Carrier-Grade Systems"
   by Greg Utas

   http://www.amazon.com/Robust-Communications-Software-Availability-Carrier-Grade/dp/0470854340

Is it any good?

thanks,

Chris

Extract from product summary:

Carrier-grade software must satisfy the stringent quality requirements
of network operators whose systems provide mission-critical
communications services. This book describes proven carrier-grade
software techniques used in flagship products designed by industry
leaders such as Lucent, Nortel, and Ericsson.

In the age of 24/7, software robustness is a competitive advantage.
This authoritative guide for software engineers, managers, and testers
of products that face carrier-grade requirements helps you to develop
state-of-the-art software that will give you an edge in today's
marketplace.

Robust Communications Software: Extreme Availability, Reliability and
Scalability for Carrier-Grade Systems
