Title: Pro Spring
Publisher: Apress
Authors: Rob Harrop, Jan Machacek
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Very deep and complete


The depth of this book is matched only by it's heft. For a book this big you would expect something with a ton of screenshots and page after page of code, but such is not the case. In fact, this book has better exposition than a lot of APress book's I've read.

The authors do a very good job at not only explaining the technology but in providing some perspective on it's use as well. Between this book and Manning's "Spring Into Action" I would take this book.

Great book for beginners and good reference for the pros


This book provides excellent information for new folks who are just now starting to create web pages. I use it frequently as a QUICK reference and it provides a good overview of important aspects of HTML. Would like to have seen some additional DESIGN comments but still think the book is excellent.

Required reading


If you want to learn how to exploit software, this is is a MUST for your library. An awesome book despite a few errors in the text.

The only issue I have is with the numerous promises of additional resources on the web site that have never materialized.
