Aleksandar led the implementation of Oracle Coherence for .NET, a client library that allows applications written in any .NET language to access data and services provided by Oracle Coherence data grid, and was one of the key people involved in the design and implementation of Portable Object Format (POF), a platform-independent object serialization format that allows seamless interoperability of Coherence-based Java, .NET, and C++ applications. Aleksandar frequently speaks about and evangelizes Coherence at industry conferences, Java and .NET user group events, and Coherence SIGs. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mark Falco is a Consulting Member of Technical Staff at Oracle. He has been part of the Coherence development team since 2005 where he has specialized in the areas of clustered communication protocols as well as the Coherence for C++ object model. Mark holds a B.S. in computer science from Stevens Institute of Technology. Patrick Peralta is a Senior Software Engineer for Oracle (formerly Tangosol) specializing in Coherence and middleware Java. He wears many hats in Coherence engineering, including development, training, documentation, and support.

As an active member of the Java developer community he has spoken at user groups and conferences across the US including Spring One and Oracle Open World. Prior to joining Oracle, Patrick was a senior developer at Symantec, working on Java/J2EE based services, web applications, system integrations, and Swing desktop clients.

EDIT - I also have the Kindle version of this book which is not so great, the formatting is terrible with parts missing. For example there is a chapter on configuration which is missing the elements the text refers to and the following chapter has some tips in it that have been cut off before the end.
The main gripe I have with the book is that alot of this stuff can be found on the internet (although Oracles dev site can be a bit of a nuisance to navigate). Really interesting stuff like deployment issues are not addressed.
If you want a well put together overview of Coherence with examples (including C++ and C# client implementations) and desktop reference you will get value out of this book.

I like that the book always shows code examples. For a developer, a snippet of code is worth a thousand words of explanation. The book also provides some utility code that will be useful in many applications plus a link to more free utilities.
The tone of the book is very approachable. You feel like Aleks Seovic sat down to explain Coherence to you; it's not like reading a textbook.
I wouldn't even try to use Coherence for C++ without first reading "Chapter 11: Accessing Coherence from C++".
My only quibbles are that some of the code formatting seems a bit odd and there are some minor wording errors.
Overall, this is an excellent book that is always pragmatic. It will help developers solve real problems in the real world using Coherence.
2. There should be a 2nd version of this book with latest features that are available. it just barely touched the new details of 3.5 .Would be nice if the 2nd edition of this is available
So the book is not just listing APIs but how to use them together with an explicit attempt to provide quality code.
The author seems experimented on finding workaround for design/APIs issue of Coherence, so he provided many packaged extra classes to help simplify usages.
What is missing in the book is coverage about transaction based application, like J2EE application using JTA/Hibernate, and how locking and rollback fit with lifecycle of cache modifications.
In other words, there is no discussion how Coherence integrates and helps when it is used as the second level cache for Hibernate.
It's a must read for all Coherence users. It's a useful read for anybody involved with local cache or in cluster.
