Five stars for the authors, and zero star (if that was possible) for the publisher.

This book is a rip-off. The authors have done a great work but the publisher has provided no value except putting the book on paper. No index! The appendices mentionned in the text are missing from the book!

Also, the title is a blatant lie, 'The Definitive Guide to Lift: A Scala-based Web Framework' is just a snapshot of an ongoing work. If Lift seems mostly stable, the book needs more work. Nothing definitive here even if the authors have done a great work.

The up to date pdf is available on the web with a more modest title "exploring lift". This is the first apress book I bought and probably the last. Shame on apress.

You need to know scala to read the either the book or the pdf. Lift seems a great framework.

This book by itself has made me feel dubious about Apress books. I'm familiar with the authors' work through the lift mailing list and can't see how they let Apress publish this in the state it's in. Perhaps they had no choice in the matter. Wait for another book. In the mean time use online resources. As for me, I'm going to throw my copy in the recycling bin even though I could return it. I refuse to inflict this book on someone else.

DON'T BUY.. NO.. DON'T READ IT!

Although English is not my primary language, as an senior software engineer, I've had no problem to read a computer/programming book since 1995 until I met this book.

Primarily, I am a C/C++/Python developer (design a library/module, and implements it). I could write a XML parser from scratch in C/Python, I can write elisp code in Emacs. But have no knowledge on Java/Erlang/Php/Perl/Ruby. I just finished reading "Programming in Scala" by Martin Odersky and others. I must admit, that it was a great/great book. I can't remember that if I had another book that gives me so much joy like Martin's one.

Back to the point,

In my opinion, this book is not an introduction/tutorial for Lift framework, it's just memo/note for the author himself.

I want to ask to the author, "please, don't write new book in this writing style" and the publisher, "please don't publish new book in this writing style ever!" I read a "Practical Common Lisp" from Apress and had a good impression on the publisher until I read ths book.

I expect this book has at least of the quality and style of "Django Tutorial" in Django's site. Am I expecting too much? No. I think not. At least Django people provide it freely in their website. If the author want to earn money from this book, at least it should contain better contents than what Django turial provided.

In Chapter 1, you'll learn how to *download* "hello, world" type of Lift project. I mean "download", not "write".

In Chapter 2, this book starts a small lift project (called PocjetChange), and shows you several code blocks and explains what the block does.
