Another classic IBM Press title is An Introduction to IMS by Dean Meltz, Rick Long, Mark Harrington, Robert Hain, and Geoff Nicholls
I love this quote that Dean Meltz has as his signature line in his emails:
Do you bank? Do you use ATMs? Do you use the internet? Then you've used IMS. Nothing has ever compared to the reliability and speed of IMS.
This book was published in 2005 and provides the insights and skills you need to succeed--as an application designer, developer, or administrator. I've been told that there are still quite a few older installations of IMS. This book is critical for the people working with the older version and can help you understand why an upgrade is desirable and will help you to understand the latest features.
