Reason number 1 - This book is for JBossAS-5.0 version of the server. Right now, there are no other books available for JBossAS5 and this is the only one

I'll let the authors mention some more

I guess you're asking why you should buy it versus buy another book. Please see other posts in this forum, we've already answered that.

I also wrote this blog entry a while back: http://javidjamae.com/2007/05/14/jboss-in-action-available-for-prepurchase/

Yes, there is quite a bit of free information about JBoss technologies on the internet. Some are decent, others are not worth the bandwidth necessary to transfer the bits to your browser. What we have done is distilled the information into a format that is easily readable. In addition, our book is focused on the practical side of things - we show you how to get things done.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
