Firstly I'll say that the examples in this book are good and deliver a basic starting point for any new camel developers. Now to explain losing two stars...

* The author's first language is clearly not English, did nobody proof read this? Some of the text is hard to comprehend and there are blatant typos!
* Layout in eBook form is horrible, partial lines of code wrapped across pages. Code snippets in eBooks do tend to suffer bit but its mostly done much better than this.
* Too many documentation links with two little in the way of explanation, this keeps the book very short but makes it difficult to read fluidly. Also, this must be a nightmare in print format!

This book surprised me considering that it's less than 100 pages and that I have read it after Camel In Action.

It's more than just a starter book.

Its Enterprise Integration Pattern centric:

It's a cookbook in which every receipt, a part of showing the solution to a specific problem, takes the opportunity to give you the context of the correspondent EIP, becoming thus more than just a simple tutorial and becoming a lightweight introduction to both Camel and EIPs.

My best advice to target the book is to people that have to ramp up quickly with the technology and either do not have time to read Camel In Action or do not have the right amount of time to absorb proper absorb all the content of the book, that could be too much to start with.

If you have to read a book over the weekend to start with Camel on Monday, this is the perfect book to give you what you need to start a project. Obviously you are going to augment, when you have time with official documentation and maybe more detailed readings.

A developer with no previous knowledge or experience of integration frameworks can be ready for real-world development after one hour of focused reading and using the author's code samples freely available on github. Throughout the text, there are references to the relevant parts of the Camel documentation for people who would like to get into the details of a subject. The book served well for me for diving into this integration framework quickly and without getting lost in detailed specifications or pages of printed code. I found it very helpful that monitoring and testing are also covered at the end of the book.

The author has done a good job in explaining the difficult aspects of Camel and Enterprise Integration in this number of pages. It is applicable to beginners as well as experienced users of Camel. I have found this book very helpful when solving integration issues at customer sites.

A must read !!!

Another 'instant' book from packt, again fairly well written (apart from quite a few grammatical mistakes) but much too short and therefore poor value for money. Do yourself a favour and buy the manning book for a much fuller introduction to camel.

Despite other reviews this book is very poor information. It is, in fact, a non-literal copy of Apache Camel documentation.
