This review is from: REST in Practice: Hypermedia and Systems Architecture (Paperback)
It is very well written, very didactic, taking the time to explain the REST concepts and philosophy. Now, it is mostly geared towards .NET and Microsoft's Window Communication Foundation (WCF), which incidentally nicely illustrates the power of REST as an integration architecture, since REST is not at all a Microsoft concept, if you know what I mean. So, excellent if you are a .NET developer or a Microsoft architect. All the same if you come for a different background, but have Microsoft Visual Studio at hand in that case (I used Visual Studio 2010 to run the examples, to good effect).
