In my opinion a very good first book on ERP-systems. Explains in calm, easy to understand language what an ERP system is, what it consists of, what implications an implementation may bring forth, etc.
If you want to understand what all the fuzz about ERP is about, this is really a recommended reading. Enjoy.
