Ed will be more qualified to answer this. IMHO this book can be an inspirational/motivational one for one to learn a few things from the successful people in the software/pragramming domain. Software development is not all about knowing a language and coding on it. One needs to learn lot of other things like soft skills etc.
I dont think Ed's book address any particular programming language's practitioners. It more about experiences and thought-sharing and in some way thought provoking examples about people who did innovative work in terms technology, framework etc. So I will be surprised if Ed says there is something for Java programmers particularly on this book.
