Hill and Mallais wrote this book in order to address what the back cover describes as a dearth of WebObjects documentation. While commendable, the book could have been easily improved. It lacks a short introduction that summarises the book and indeed, explains broadly what WebObjects do. Plus, it might also usefully explain what prerequisites you need. To someone new to WebObjects, the first chapter offers little guidance to these issues. The material it covers is fine, but it is potentially confusing without that introduction. Indeed, it is only by the second and third chapters that the reader gets some glimmerings of what this is all about. Granted, the authors are probably writing for those already knowing something of WebObjects. But an introduction can make this explicit. Especially since WebObjects are still a fairly specialised topic. If the authors want to increase its usage, they need to accomodate neophytes. The incremental cost of a few pages of introduction is negligible to address this.
