Here is what I've just extracted from the amazon page of the book...
Targeted to new Tapestry users and even developers new to creating web applications in general, this guide includes extensive notes on development "gotchas", including common Tapestry errors and how to fix them.
I wrote the book to help new developers learn Tapestry. Tapestry is a great departure from traditional Java web applications. The freedom it provides can be confusing initially. Understanding Tapestry requires understanding some complex relationships between Tapestry, your code, the Servlet API, and so forth. New users have traditionally had a problem with this, because they didn't have a guide. This book is the guide ... it presents each concept in the correct order, to keep you on track.
The book is very practical, it consists of many small applications that demonstrate ordinary situations in application development, then goes into detail about how to approach those situations optimally using Tapestry.
