I'm a fan of the O'Reilly book, "Programming in Jakarta Struts". Sue Speilmans' struts book has some good information, but it's not the most hardcore detailed book. I am not a fan of the "Struts in Action" book. I found a lot of incomplete examples and incorrect stuff.

Hi All,
I am new to Struts but wanted to use Struts for development of my website. I have been reading lot of reviews of Struts books and wanted to know abt the book -The Struts Framework: Practical Guide for Programmers. by Sue Spielman.
I am asking especially abt this book becoz itz a 135 page bok & I love such small books. I have read a few tutorials abt struts and so by now I am a bit familiar with the jargons ActionServlet, ActionForm, ActionMapping, action class and the structure of struts-config.xml & web.xml. Also read abt Tiles(how to use definitions etc )Believe me nothing more than that !!
Now my question is whether Sue Spielman will help me giving a boost in starting developing my site in just 2-3 days ??
I understand that I can get the API details and all on net, so I was interested in buying a book which does **NOT** act like a sleeping pill but tells me what all Struts can provide in web-development & how can I exploit it at all the stages of my website development.

Please help me.
Or shud I buy Struts in Action or O'reilly book ??
