Format: Paperback
Executive Summary: Needs a special hardcover edition with a gem-encrusted leather cover so that I can stroke it with one hand while typing with the other and cackle, "My Precious, My Precious". It *is* that good.
Let me hasten to provide detailed reasons for this highly enthusiastic summation.
This is the best single book compilation of Notes development information that I've ever seen. It's slanted toward detailing the new features of Notes/Domino 6 (new features are flagged in the text), but is hardly limited to ND 6 features. Even experienced developers are likely to pick up useful information from the ND6 Bible. While this might not be the only book you'd need as a beginning Notes/Domino developer, it will serve as much more than a starting point. It's got lots of wise advice on Notes database design. You could learn all this though bitter experience instead, but why do that when you can just skip over many pitfalls with the aid of this book? The early chapters give all the detail a beginner or novice will need to get going. More advanced chapters skip the basic details, but whatever the level, this book is very good at giving you the why along with the how.
Many of the code examples not only demonstrate the topic under discussion, but show how to do useful things besides. If you're tired of books with "toy" code examples, the ND6 Bible is for you. In particular, Advanced Formula Techniques and Advanced LotusScript Techniques are two chapters that will be of interest to all but the most experienced of Notes developers.
Particularly providential for me were Chapters 43-45 on relational database integration. I'm working on a project that will need to do something along these lines. Various data integration options are described.

This is an excellent book. I have been developing in Notes/Domino since R3, and still managed to find quite a bit of information in here that was new. Brian, Rocky, and Richard present their information in a clear and easy-to-understand conversational style. Instead of the "I am the master; bow down in my presence" feeling that comes across in other programming guides, reading this book is like having a conversation with a more experienced mentor / co-worker. I highly recommend this book to both novice and experienced developers.

Format: Paperback
As with any book, it's only useful if it has what you want. Like many of the Bible series, it is rated for "Beginning", but it is really for experienced techs to add Lotus Notes to their skill set. The book assumes that you are familiar with scripting languages. If you aren't, don't expect this book to help you much. There are no reference materials for any of the functions or commands, no syntax helps, and no tutorials for the programming at all. Yet most of the chapters rely on programming extensively.

This is a great book for any Notes aficionado to own. Rocky Oliver writes with authority and clarity. If you want to add value to your ND6 investment then this is the book to buy. There is also a section by Richard Schwartz that is worth reading.

Before I go any further, I have to disclose up front that I personally and professionally know all three authors who contributed to Lotus Notes and Domino 6 Programming Bible (Brian Benz and Rocky Oliver, 2003, John Wiley And Sons, 1032 Pages, ISBN 0764526111). And Rocky, Brian and Richard will all tell you that I would still be the first one to call it like I see it, regardless of relationships. So with that in mind, to every person who works with Lotus Notes and Domino, regardless of version, and to every person who has ever posted to the Lotus developerWorks forum asking about good reference material for development: buy this book and put it on your bookshelf. I may approach coding somewhat differently than the authors, but that is the nature of all application developers. But this book does something often overlooked in too many technical books: it not only talks about how things work in Notes/Domino, it also puts out best practices and explanations for these best practices based on the authors vast depth and breadth of experience.

Make no mistake about it, this book is a tome. You are not going to read it like a novel. You are going to pick and choose the pieces you need based on your experience levels and problems you are trying to solve. The publisher wisely categorizes this book as a "beginner to advanced" level, a point I think one early reviewer of this book missed. In a systematic format, the authors walk the reader from the very beginning of Lotus Notes as a product to the point where even the most advanced developers can benefit from the content.

Lotus Notes and Domino is all about design items and objects, stored as 'notes'. So the authors make no assumption of the reader's experience level.

Format: Paperback
This book is not only the best book for Notes and Domino 6, including the IBM redbooks, but may be the best book every written for Notes/Domino technologies. The reason for that is it covers everythiing you need. Very comprehensive. The only downside is that its too heavy to ready in bed or carry with you on the train!
I bought this for myself and have bought copies for my team members. Get this now!
