I believe under the description of this book on Amazon.com, it is mentioned that this book targets both advanced and novice users. I do not quite understand how this book can be useful to somebody who's an advanced Java developer. I had a chance to skim through the table of contents of this book, and now I am not sure how this book can be useful to some advanced programmer. I mean an advanced programmer usually knows what's ant or how to work with CVS. Figuring these things out shouldn't be difficult for some tech savvy individual. Having said all this, I have the utmost respect for the authors of this book. I think this book is great for a beginner. No doubt about it. Even intermediate programmers can learn from this book. Not sure that's the case for advanced programmers!
