Refactoring Resources

Any experienced "refactorers" out there? Just curious to know if there are any good resources with questions/answers and examples of best practices for refactoring your java code. You want code to run fast, be reliable, and maintainable; and to me those are the main areas where refactoring can assist.

I've heard that Martin Fowler's book: "Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code (Hardcover)" ISBN: 0201485672, is a very good book on the subject of refactoring. All of the examples are in Java. The book is rated 4 1/2 stars on I think it's a good book, so I ordered it.
