Does the book identify/recommend performance tools that can be used to determine bottlenecks in Java applications? I would want to know where the bottlenecks are before attempting to address application performance tuning issues...
Is the table of contents available online? How about sample chapters?

Here's a thread about the online chapters

My book includes explanations of the process of profiling applications to identify many types of bottlenecks, including execution and memory bottlenecks.
I include documentation for some free performance tools, mainly the ones that come wih Sun's JVM (documentation that is not readily available elsewhere). Otherwise I do not specifically recommend for or against any performance tool. I identify many existing performance tools in the resources, though the main resource is, of course, online at my site where the list of tools available are constantly updated on our resources page.
And, of course, John has replied comprehensively to the chapters/contents part of your question.

Interesting, thanks... looks like the book covers quite a range of topics related to Java performance!
