This is a nice introduction to Maven, a good starting point to get a demonstration system up and running.
For anything more serious though, the Maven documentation is where you need to go.
As an introduction to Maven for Newbies, it's a 4 star.
As a Cookbook though, it's a 1 start.

If you don't know much about Apache Maven and want to get the basics down (and have some questions answered), then this is the book for you.

This book isn't for everyone though. Just like with any book.

I have been using Maven for a while and I only knew basic lifecycle commands and my daily work with Maven was "mvn clean install" and sometimes adding dependencies. So finally I thought that I should buy a proper book to understand what is Maven capable of and how does it actually work. Buying this book wasn't complete mistake, but it definitelly didn't provide valuable information for which I was looking for.

If you're thinking about this book, bear in mind that it is for the absolute maven newbies. If you understand Maven at least a bit, you're fine with google and reference documentation when needed.

The most annoying thing about this book is its verbosity. It keeps wasting pages on absolutly trivial stuff - like downloading IDE where to click and so on. Book also tried to cove ther very basic (and very easily googleable) information about integrating with common technologies like Spring, Android, GWT, Java EE etc. I prefer when product vendors provide information about Maven integration, not when Maven book is trying to cover all possible frameworks and show only hello world examples. This verbosity I am mentioning added a lot of pages to the book and made it look reasonably sized. But most of this size is just fat that you're probably not inrested into.

As for Kindle version, formatting sucked and XML codes (which is like third of this book) weren't indented properly.

Format: Paperback
This book is written in Packt's Cookbook style, which means it's broken into a series of task-oriented sections that describe how to accomplish some particular task. A general overview is provided for new users to Maven, it's not long but it has good content. I'm a moderately experienced Maven user and found that the book validated some things I thought I knew but was not sure of, and also introduced several feature I was not aware of. The bulk of the book consists of demonstrating the proper archetype to use for various project types and the associated tweaks you'll need to make after the project generation is completed. All things considered, this book rounded out my understanding of Maven and will be kept as a reference for some of the more esoteric project types.

70% of this book content is copied from maven output.
It could be used to help u get started that's all it can do.

Format: Paperback
The book contains a good collection of recipes to start playing with Apache Maven, an Open Source build automation tool widely adopted, especially for JVM-based languages, such as Java, Scala, but also applicable to other languages, like PHP, Ruby and C#.
The book is targeted for Software Developers who want to start with Maven, therefore it is important to have a generic knowledge about Software Development and the challenges that need to be tackled when building Software; the definition of Application Lifecycle Management is good reading to start.
It is highly advised to follow this book with a laptop close to you, having a working installation of Maven 3.0.x; the first chapter of this book will guide you through the process.

Maven 3 Cookbook is a great contribution to the Maven Community and I am happy to have it reviewed; it does not cover everything for sure, but gives you a very quick start on Maven and remarks what are the most important aspects of a software lifecycle providing simple examples; it is definitely a nice reading for someone that has never used Maven.
From a general perspective, the book is well written, it provides a clear chapter structure and a high readability; the Maven archetypes provided by Packt are very useful and save a lot of time copy/pasting code if you want to run the examples.
The Maven expert could get a bit bored with this reading, although there are some very nice considerations and snippets, especially on Chapter 3, 4 and 6.
Although the book covers and amazing amount of topics, yet being able to keep it simple and readable, some important topics are missing; I strongly advise to deepen your Maven know-how reading also

This book definitively is not for begginers.

I have no idea of Maven at all, and this book definitively doesn't help: the descriptions of the "recipes" are direct to solve specific problems when using maven could arise.

However it could be a good book when you have certain knowledge of Maven and you need help for specific tasks.
