Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management - book review

This is my second review in short time frame but totally different from first one. It is not about Oracle DB and I’m doing it from newbie position. This is my first experience with Oracle PeopleSoft from business perspective. Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise Financial Management 9.1 Implementation is covering following topics from business perspective:
1. Financials Fundamentals
2. PeopleSoft Security
3. PeopleSoft Billing Module
4. PeopleSoft Accounts Receivable Module
5. PeopleSoft Asset Management Module
6. PeopleSoft Accounts Payable Module
7. PeopleSoft General Ledger Module
8. PeopleSoft Expenses Module
9. PeopleSoft Commitment Control

Whole book is covering one example based on Automotive company and every chapter is describing other business requirements.
All topics are explained in details and every topic has a short introduction from functional perspective. There are also implementation challenges for most common issues. Every chapter is guiding user though module configuration and typical actions. Examples have slides and description of all actions.

I can recommend this book for all for people without financial background like me as a starting point into PeopleSoft application world.
