Format: Paperback
Chapter 1 : Sets the scene and gives a good overview of AJAX, how it was originally defined, and how it has evolved, so it's know know as Ajax, because it uses technologies like JSON over XML to send data over the wire. It also goes a good job of surveying the competition and describes the relative strengths and pitfalls of each technology.
Chapter 2: Conveys sets the stage for using GWT. It starts out a bit tedious, but gets better as the chapter progresses and ends up discussing some useful Firefox plugins to help with when developing Web Apps with Ajax.
Chapters 3-6 Then proceed to develop a task recording system. The example is gradually refined and is where you get the most value from the book.
Chapter 7: Is on testing. I think this is where the book lost a star for me. I found it particularly dull and boring. The examples were contrived. Why the book didn't create tests correlating to the domain example, I don't quite understand. The Selenium stuff would better be handled by pointing to a webcast. The benchmarking stuff was too basic to render it pointless it wasn't worth wasting the paper and readers time.
Chapter 8: This is a mixed bag. There is some good stuff here. For me it's not so much the failing on the part of the authors, it's the technology itself. Maybe there are better ways of handling i18n.. But if you've worked with Struts 2, you'll think defining a constants class to load up resource bundles is a bad smell. On the flip side of this, the discussion of the progress of file uploads with asynchronous callbacks was quite interesting.

GWT as a technology is interesting. It has it's good points, but also it's pitfalls (mainly i18n). I see similarites to Wicket or Tapestry in here.

Useful book with regards to an introduction. However certain issues are left out which may cause a lot of confusion, specifically with regards to ajax.

Too short and superficial for my taste, but gets you going using GWT.
