I'm looking forward to reading this book.  Just got a copy on Amazon after reviewing the table of contents.  For experienced Java developers, this is the type of information that we need.  Thanks for writing the book!

Welcome to the Java Ranch!  

I've read through the table of contents for your book and I've got to say that I am really looking forward to reading it. Java performance issues have been at the heart of my work for a long time, and it looks like there's still a lot of opportunities for improvement.

I need to take myself out of the running for the free book, I'm still happy my java compiles.  Performance is not yet on my radar.

Which Java gives you the best performance?  I'm partial to dark roast, but one co-worker insists on cold-brewed while my boss is an espresso man.

I always find the best Java for optimal performance is the one you can send someone else off to make for you!

A gentle reminder to all promotion participants that this thread is for welcoming the author only. Normally questions posted here will be deleted but in this case as the authors have already answered they can stay. However, remember that questions asked in this thread will not get your name in the hat for winning a copy of the book at the end of the week. To be in with a chance of winning you need to ask questions in a new thread in this forum.

Good luck everyone!
