This book was rushed and it shows. The first six chapters are really good. They are packed with solid information on topics such as installation and using JSPs, Servlets, and XTP. I found the XTP chapter particularly informative because I had not used the feature before.
The book starts to go down hill after that. The XDoclet chapter was too brief an introduction for a book with the word "Mastering" in the title. The typos started to become more common after that, as well. Part III, Resin Administration, didn't offer anything that can't be easily found in the documentation.
Overall, I'd say wait to see if the second edition fixes many of the problems.

That's odd that is should feel rushed as this book was delayed in publication. Too bad the auithors didn't use the extra time productively.
