So, without being too rude; Whats the big argument to go and buy your book if I already have the famous Gang of Four pattern book?

Hi Roger,

No worries. Please see my post here.

And as one of my endorsers wrote, "Michael Ogrinz does for mashups what the illustrious Gang of Four (Gamma, Helm, Johnson, and Vlissides) did for object-oriented software design. He starts with a buzzword-free explanation of what mashups are and how they matter to the enterprise. He then presents a taxonomy of ready-to-implement design patterns, chock-full of concrete examples. Finally, he includes an appendix of realworld case studies, ranging from a Web 2.0 startup to the Defense Intelligence Agency. This clear, readable, no-nonsense book is a must-have for enterprise IT workers who are ready to embrace the brave new world of Enterprise 2.0.” –Daniel Tunkelang, Ph.D., Chief Scientist, Endeca
