"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the Back Cover
Expert Solutions and State-of-the-Art Code Examples"SOA Using Java(TM) Web Services" is a hands-on guide to implementing Web services and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with today's Java EE 5 and Java SE 6 platforms. Author Mark Hansen presents in explicit detail the information that enterprise developers and architects need to succeed, from best-practice design techniques to state-of-the-art code samples.Hansen covers creating, deploying, and invoking Web services that can be composed into loosely coupled SOA applications. He begins by reviewing the "big picture," including the challenges of Java-based SOA development and the limitations of traditional approaches. Next, he systematically introduces the latest Java Web Services (JWS) APIs and walks through creating Web services that integrate into a comprehensive SOA solution. Finally, he shows how application frameworks based on JWS can streamline the entire SOA development process and introduces one such framework: SOA-J.The bookIntroduces practical techniques for managing the complexity of Web services and SOA, including best-practice design examplesOffers hard-won insights into building effective SOA applications with Java Web Services Illuminates recent major JWS improvements-including two full chapters on JAX-WS 2.0Thoroughly explains SOA integration using WSDL, SOAP, Java/XML mapping, and JAXB 2.0 data bindingWalks step by step through packaging and deploying Web services components on Java EE 5 with JSR-181 (WS-Metadata 2.0) and JSR-109 Includes specific code solutions for many development issues, from publishing REST endpoints to consuming SOAP services with WSDL Presents a complete case study using the JWS APIs, together with an Ajax front end, to build a SOA application integrating Amazon, Yahoo Shopping, and eBayContains hundreds of code samples-all tested with the GlassFish Java EE 5 reference implementation-that are downloadable from the companion Web site, http: //soabook.com.

But overall the book provides some great information on JAX-WS, particularly the features that are more advanced and harder to find examples of using. Definitely not an introductory book, but I'd recommend to people who like to understand how things work more than just knowing how to use them.
That said, acronyms were over-used. By page 70, my head was swimming trying to remember the difference between an SEI and an EIS. If you are going to abbreviate that many things, create a table to decode them or at least include them in the glossary.
Potential buyers need to know what they are getting. This is the single best book on JWS programming available. It's incredibly dense. The acronyms fly all over the place. Hansen dives into technologies and if you don't know the technologies already you will find yourself spending hours digging into things like XSLT. We're talking about many, many hours to swallow the whole thing. It's an expert's book - anyone who is serious about JWS and SOA has to have this book with Monson-Haefel 'J2EE Web Services' right next to it to cover the stuff Hansen doesn't address.
But I also recommend the book to people who are less serious and have less time, and even to beginners. These readers should buy the book, start with section 7.7 (an excellent demo of the Java 6 Endpoint class, which is as simple as JWS gets), and maybe do Chapter 3 to learn something about REST (also fairly simple). Then put it on your shelf until you have a few hours free, and tackle a section of one of the chapters. Keep at it, though it might take a while. This book will improve your understanding over time. I've encountered a few technical books which I've worn into a limp condition from reading and re-reading - this looks like another.
But there's the rub: the writing logic is incredibly "upside down". The author chokes you with details first, then, much later, gives the context into which the details should fit. Sometimes he even neglects to give any context at all, and you're left with a load of low-level details for which you have no use.
The REST chapter is a case in point, instead of explaining REST or elaborating the position of REST vis-a-vis the broader spectrum of Web Services, which he said in the preface that he'd do, the chapter starts with an out-of-place primer on XML and XSLT and then moves to implementation examples of doing REST with and without Java Web Services. The end.
Also, the book assumes you already know all you need to know about SOA and Web Services, and focuses far too closely on the the implementation using the new tools of Java Web Services. While that's the title of the book, the back cover makes you think that it covers issues broader than implementation details, by saying things like "practical techniques for managing the complexity of web services and SOA, including best-practice design examples".
In general I found that the information is badly organized, the sub-topics in a chapter don't build up well to the chapter's objective, the diagrams are confusing, and, usually, you don't get what the author is trying to achieve from the flood of information he provides.
