The Specification is a reference. JSP containers must follow the rules set in the JSP Specification. You can refer to the spec to make sure how a container is supposed to work.

A book is a more 'friendly' approach. The spec is dry to read, and some may find it boring. If you want to start using JSP, you should read a book instead.
