    management, and web components.  The following sections are mostly
    oriented towards business people making decisions about Zope, so if you
    are interested in jumping right in, skip to the next chapter, *Using

       Again with the hype. Knock it off! Readers can decide for themselves whether something is "powerful" or

       Do you mean really that the author himself is not free to give his opinion on the product, or does everyone
       have to ask for your permission when speaking about his own work??...as far as I'm concerned there's freedom
       of expression on civilised countries...where do tou live?

       I'm not not a native english speaker, so I'm sorry if I make some mistakes. But I agreed with the first
       comment. I'm tired of applications that permanently boast about being the greatest. It's not necessary to
       inflationate the documentation with such adjetives. Do you know sombody that would say that his product is
       not the best and the gratest?

       not cram the information into the lowest volume - some lighter descriptive sentences help the book be less
