Looking at the TOC and the preface, the answer to your question would be 'Yes'!

I don't think I could say it any better than Matt Taylor did. But I will add that Grails is a great framework for new web developers. It's a breeze to get going and to build useful apps, but then you can keep digging deeper the more you learn. It's like a bicycle with training wheels that automatically fall off when you don't need them anymore!
