Now, I have read many reviews on Pro JSF and AJAX. Some complain that the book doesn't go deep into either topic. I understand that some Amazon reviewers provide bogus reviews. So, I want to take this opportunity to ask the authors, how is this book going to be help:

1. Somebody who doesn't know any of these technologies.
2. Somebody who knows only one of these technolgies.
3. Somebody who knows both of these technologies.

Thank you!

As we state in the book description on Amazon.com "This is not an entry-level tutorial ...", so I guess it will be #3

"3. Somebody who knows both of these technologies."

If you are just starting out with JSF and Ajax you should get a book or two that introduces you to those two topics e.g. Foundations of Ajax, Ajax in Action, JSF in Action. After reading up on the topics you will really appreciate our book when you pick it up

Cheers,
Jonas

I had the same question and I got a clear answer from this.
To the authors: I appreciate your humility in referring some other books/authors when appropriate.
