I'm about to buy the Kindle edition. I'm doing a large Spring project, and need all the help I can get.
But I have to say that I find it surprising that Chapter 8, the last chapter, is on AOP. I would think that a book on Spring would discuss that more near the start.
Do you have any comments on that?

We kept AOP (Aspect-oriented programming) as the last chapter in the book because it is an advanced topic. And, you don't need to know AOP to use Spring. For this reason, chapters 1-7 focus on Spring core concepts, and usage of Spring for database interaction, messaging, asynchronous execution of tasks, and so on. As AOP is used internally by Spring to provide many features (like transaction management and caching), it has been introduced at the end of the book.
