Camel in Action walks you though the entire process of using EIP within your application, and explains the core concepts behind both Camel and EIP using an amazingly focused and clear approach. You will learn all about messages, routing, transformations, error handling and testing within the first two sections alone. The third section nicely covers all the advanced topics that developers utilising Camel in their day job will no doubt encounter, such as transactions, concurrency, scalability, monitoring and deploying to name a few.
The book does a great job of covering core EIP concepts, and you can learn even more from Enterprise Integration Patterns: Designing, Building, and Deploying Messaging Solutions (Addison-Wesley Signature) which was ground-breaking when first published, and was the book that introduced EIP to the world (and is still the definitive reference).
If you're using the Spring framework for implementing your main application then it will be worth having a look at Spring Integration, which offers very similar functionality as Camel, and allows you to implement EIP without leaving your current framework. If you do decide to use Spring Integration then I would recommend checking out the sister book to this one Spring Integration in Action
It could be argued that Camel in Action contains a more logical flow with introducing and using EIP principles, and with Camel in Action the journey through the book feels very much like learning to leverage EIP within your applications by utilising Camel. Spring Integration in Action reads more like using Spring to implement functionality that happens to be based on EIP. This is a subtle difference, and has both advantages and disadvantages. Readers familiar with Spring (and indeed actively developing with Spring) will probably get up to speed quicker with Spring Integration In Action, but developers who aren't familiar with Spring (or who want to learn more about core EIP principles) will ultimately get more out of Camel In Action.
In summary, another great 'in Action' book that is destined to become the definitive reference for Camel, and if you're looking to learn this framework or utilise EIP within your application then you can't go wrong by buying this book.

But Camel in Action is different.
Camel is constantly growing and changing. As of February 2014, the first edition (2011) is still fresh. Camel's online documentation will never be replaced by any book. However, there are things you can do with books that you still can't do online. Thumbing and skimming topics, and going back and forth between topics, is critical for learning a subject as large as Camel.
As other reviewers here have already pointed out, Camel in Action is well organized, clearly written, and contains excellent technical diagrams. It can be digested well by Java programmers who have zero Camel knowledge.
I especially appreciate the downloadable eBook in various formats at no charge, which is handy when I'm on the road.
