What can I say? This is the definitive book on Enterprise Java Beans (EJB). It is more tutorial than reference, although most of what you would need to look up is in there somewhere. Its strength is in the depth and detail of the examples and explanations. EJB is a large and complex topic, so the best way to read it is with some sort of EJB container to hand so you can experiment, otherwise it might seem too much to absorb all at once. This book is recommended by Sun for the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect qualification and should be on the desk of anyone working (or thinking of working) with EJB.
The only down-side with any book like this is that things move so fast - upcoming associated technologies like message-driven beans, XML-RPC and SOAP didn't make it into the book for this version, and it only covers EJB 1.1 rather than the very new EJB 2.0.
