Format: Paperback
I haven't actually learned Java, but I still found this to be an excellent reference and a great way to begin working with Groovy. You will need to have some programming background since the book presupposes knowledge of basic structures like Strings and Arrays (ArrayLists for you Java people), but you certainly do not need to have a Java background. The book has plenty of examples and offers a lot of comparisons between Java and Groovy, which means it explains Groovy in terms the reader is already familiar with. All in all, a great way to learn a fun new language.

Very poor. Cannot be used as a reference document for Groovy. The index is not useful. I have not used the Grails or Griffon section. I would recommend anybody to take a look before purchasing this book.

I give 4 stars here. Everything is almost perfect if you come from a Java background. It start from a full java example, and then it simplify it step by step by using and explaining Groovy. Then it covers the cool features of the new Groovy 2, going more far away than I was expecting by buying this book. I was very happy with this part.

Then you build a grails project from scratch so that you can feel the power (productivity) of the framework. It's really smooth curve learning if you already coded with any MVC java web framework. You pick then some example of Ajax and web service, without diving depth into the thing but still have a good overview of if.

The griffon part is very tiny, it's more a introduction to the topic.

Why does it miss a star ? I would have like to have some example from the editor about the Web Services, and the other thing is that the examples of the editor website not always work, but are easy to debug with very few changes.

Finally, they made a very good job, with up-to-date version of the tools, the title of the book is correct, to the point : it's more "beginning in ..." than "reference book about...", even if the groovy part goes a little beyond "beginning".
