GWT review (was: title of book?)

Is "GWT Java AJAX Programming" the same book as "Google Web Toolkit"? Both are by the same author and publisher so I suspect they are. But the cover is different on the web, so I am not positive.

I ask because I am in the middle of reviewing "Google Web Toolkit" right now. I'm up to chapter 6. If it is the same book, I will try to submit my review before the promo ends.

I am not sure why there are two different titles. I think the actual title of the book is "Google Web Toolkit - GWT Java AJAX Programming". Thanks for taking the time to go through the book. Looking forward to hearing your views.

thanks

I see. It does say both on the cover. "Google Web Toolkit" was bigger on the cover and is the only thing on the spine, so I just assumed it was the title. Sorry I didn't realize this was the same book - I would have rushed to review it by today! So far it is good. I like the examples since they are so practical.
