I found this book good in content, but given the amount of recipes it can be difficult to locate any of them when necessary.
It is my first o'reilly's cookbook and not sure I will buy another one since I believe they are not for me. The information on it is the typical information you'll find when googling (probably more structured and with uniform sections across them) about a concrete subject, but without the search engine. For this reason it can be difficult to use.
That being said, I think some recipes are very useful and can solve many problems when designing and developing web services.
