My company did the 30-day (or whatever) trial subscription
thingie and I was one of the people selected to evaluate
the service.

The selection of books was excellent, but the user interface
and the tools provided for you were somewhat...um...unpolished.
This was 6 months ago. They may have improved since then.

I, personally, found that the service is more valuable when
you're learning something new instead of when you're using
it as a reference. Since 90% of my time reading technical
books is for reference, I felt the service had not that much
to offer me. YMMV.

The service is expensive (for corporate accounts). We decided
that it was too expensive for the benefit and did not continue
our subscription after the trial period.

Convince your company do get the trial subscription and you
can try the service yourself. It costs nothing.
