Background: I've worked with GWT for 18 months. I also happen to work at Google - I say this not imply any kind of company endorsement - but just to give you an idea of the amount of GWT information I have access to.

I have found this book really useful for getting to grips with some of the more cutting edge and esoteric features of GWT. It covers such things as superdev mode and generators - features that you'll find little information on elsewhere. Because of the book's size and depth it might be intimidating to a complete beginner, but the authors do provide plenty of worked examples to tinker with. In contrast to some other GWT books I've tried I also found this pretty readable.

In summary, I'm a fairly seasoned GWT developer and I still found much to learn from this book. I wish I'd had it a year ago.

I ordered this book with the assumption that it would be a nice reference for obscure things I would like to do with GWT. Then I received it, and turns out this book is much more than that.

This book covers things I've never used, and opens up a world of functionality that I had previously been unaware of. The biggest thing: RequestFactory is no longer a mystery to me.

Another big plus: this book helped me clean up my MVP implementations. I had a little bit too much going on in my view layer previous to reading this book, and now, all cleaned up.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who uses GWT even if you are an expert. It's well written with barely any errata. Well done!

I'm in the final stages of porting an Android app to GWT. I'm not sure I could have gotten this far without this book, but I'm sure that it would have taken much, much longer for me to have done so. Many times I gave up on the GWT docs in frustration and turned to this book's index and found the answer I was looking for.

Also I appreciate the book's supportive tone and its graphically-annotated code examples that clarify what's going on right next to the relevant code snippet.

This book has been a great asset in learning to use GWT effectively for me. I have a background in Java web development but am new to GWT technologies. Although most of the topics covered in this book can be found in online documentation or tutorials, the book and examples given are much more clear, much less cluttered, more in depth, and much easier to understand.

I did not buy this book to get immediate solutions to pressing problems at work. So my 5 star rating is definitely subjective - I can afford to take my time...
However, if you are just curious about how GWT works buy this book - it is an in-depth and entertaining read.
