4.0 out of 5 stars Pratical, 10 Sep 2011
Good book on practical REST.
It assumes you already know something about REST and its "philosophy" and presents the different aspects of REST with a single example that grows from chapter to chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I've read; inspirational and motivational, 10 Sep 2011
This book is really great. I've read several inspirational books so far but this one is by far the best. It's plain simple in writing style and clarity and transmits a good feeling message that anything can be achievable. Richard Branson tells some interesting stories about his own life and business and provides for a couple of "mantras" on how to live life to the fullest, such as:
- Just Do It
- Have Fun
- Be bold
- Challenge yourself
- Live the moment

He also, talks about the social, ethical and environmental responsibility of companies in the last chapters of the book in what he terms "Gaia Captalism".

A definitive must have.
