I've reading Inside servlets & I must say that the book has an excellent intro & gives a good explanation of the fundamentals & basics. If you are new like me in web development, u'll enjoy reading the book. On the whole I find the book very informative & very easy to understand. I have no idea abt the other book. But, once u r thro with the book, I guess you can get other detailed info topic wise from the web. sat
