Hi Tony,

There are actually a couple of chapters out on the web for you to sample... here are some links:

http://www.theserverside.com/tt/articles/article.tss?l=AjaxWarrior

http://apress.com/book/supplementDownload.html?bID=10143&sID=3669

As for what experience level it's written for, it's technically written for those with a decent grasp of Java and some experience with Javascript/HTML... it's not really meant for beginners... that being said, I think the chapters do, by and large, build up the difficulty level, so if you come in fairly new, I do think you'll be able to keep up. I think the important point is that you have a decent grasp of Java to begin with, because it is definitely written with the assumption that your there to learn AJAX/Javascript/CSS, that sort of stuff, but that you already know Java relatively well. Even still, there is a chapter that deals with the basics of Java web development, Ant, that sort of stuff. Plus, the Java code in the projects is by and large not very complex.

And in typical fashion I've written way more than is necessary Bottom-line: If your truly a beginner in Javascript/CSS AND Java, it's probably not a good starting point. If you'r at least OK with Java and aren't totally new to the client-side stuff, I think it's be OK. Possibly a bit challenging in parts, but OK.
