This book is hard to fathom. The examples don't work. They would have been great if they worked. There is no overview; the big picture of the process is lost in a multitude of details. I usually love O'Reilly books: this is an exception. On the positive side, it is nice that there were full blown web service already coded. To bad they didn't work right out of the book.

This book has everything you need to understand and get a web service up and running using SOAP with one exception; thorough explanations. I found the examples in the book too terse and too many errors. The O'Reilly web site has plenty of errata entries under the 'unconfirmed' column and virtually no errata under the 'Confirmed' column (A misspelling of one of the author's name). Shame on O'Reilly for releasing a book before it was finished. If the book was finished, shame on the authors this work. If you're a pure Unix geek who abhors GUI interfaces, sticks to the principle, 'No one should read your code unless they understand it', well, then you'll love this one.
