Does anyone know of a place to order a book format of the EJB 2.0 spec? I coudl not find it on Amazon.
I have downloaded the EJB 1.0 Spec and printed it. Should I start here - or just skip to 2.0? (Does the material repeat itself?)
How drastically different are the specs, can someone summarize the main differences?
Thanks!

Wow. 1.0 to 2.0. I don't have them in front of me here, but if I remember, the difference is around 300 pages
I say skip the 1.0. It's pretty old. I'd move right to 2.0.
If you are already familiar with the 1.0 spec, you can start with the "changes" appendix in the back of the 1.1 and 2.0 specs. I usually turn there to get a rough, quick rundown of what's changed when a new spec comes out. When you see something interesting, scan over that section to get an idea about it.
That might also give you a feel for the history and what's been going on.
I don't read these things all in one sitting, either. I usually scan the contents and read introductory chapters and sections. Then I dive into one topic at a time. After I feel familiar with the content, I like having the PDF because I can search it.

Nothing like drinking a gallon of coffee and cozying up on the couch and reading the EJB specification.

I downloaded the PDF and had Kinko's print it up for me. It usually costs about $25 or so, but it's worth it for me. I hate reading online!
