I was disappointed in this book. Over 200 of the 300+ pages were API. While the remaining pages did an ok job of explaining the technology, there were very few examples. This book would make a much better white paper or web page than a book. If you want an overview of the technology and the API, then this is your book. I think it was a very bad idea to have more pages on the API than actual content.
