This book is for readers who already know Java SE, SQL, and basic HTML–established programmers who are ready to take their Java coding skills to the next level. Software developers can read this book from cover to cover or turn to individual sections for reference when specific Java programming questions arise.

If you know basic Java and/or another web technology like Django or Rails, this gets you up to speed with modern Java EE quickly.
It has a lot of pro-tips, provides a solid basic foundation of modern Servlets/JSP/EL, then extends it with Spring and the chapter on logging and setting up your debugger was good.
I also liked how it was tailored around Maven and IntelliJ, with Tomcat for development, as that is what mose enterprise developers favour.
This book is targeting the pr0, so perhaps the £349 commercial licence fee should be considered insignificant? After all it makes sense to have the best tools. The problem is you have to learn how to use them. As a professional, when I have to learn a load of new stuff, the last thing I want to be bogged down with is a new IDE. I don't even want to install the trial version just to attempt to export the projects. Given the context, it's about as appealing as a free 'Ask' toolbar. This is my first Wrox book; never had this problem with other publishers - lowers my opinion and rating.
I particularly liked all the small projects in every chapter that allow you to put in practice what you have learned and also the big customer-support project that covers everything. It really helps you to see the benefits of each new approach/technology.

Great book as it uses IntelliJ to show most of the examples.
Not all topics are relevant, well to me it wasn't as I am API developer
