I am still reading Java Distributed Objects as I write this note. I actually got it 3 days ago as I take a graduate course in Java for Distributed Programming and felt overwhelmed in this course. <p>I haven¿t left the book since I got it and it already cleared a lot of subjects that I am wrestling with for several months. <p>I love this book and appreciate immensely the authors¿ great contribution to me. <p>I never wrote an evaluation on a book, as one never has the time to use this form of saying thank you. Thanking that one made such effort to contribute to you, usually for a price of dinner or less. I decided to make an exception this time. <p>So why I am I throwing an exception now? <p>Before I bought the book I looked at it briefly at the bookstore and thought that it will be helpful. Than I got on line and read a very negative review by one reader. I almost didn¿t buy the book as it was so negative and that would have been a huge loss for me as the book really pooled up from a very frustrating sense of being completely overwhelmed by the subject. I am not sure what motivated the other reader to be so negative. I usually feel a lot of respect to an author who goes through the immense birthing pains to produce a book that intends to contribute to others. Yeah he gets paid some but I can hardly envision anybody retiring from one of these tech books. <p>So for what ever it worth. I thank these authors for producing this book. It helps me a lot and I appreciate it! <p>Ted I Weitz MD<br> Cambridge MA <br> (No, I do not work for SAMS do not know the authors or even knows where they are.)Was this review helpful?
