All true craftsmen need the best tools

Positive reviews are still proliferating on the web about Java Power Tools book. The TechBookReport website gives the book an overall verdict of "Highly Recommended":

"Overall this is a great resource. It brings together all the major pieces one would want when building a development and build environment for Java. Each of the tools that is covered is worth looking at...each chapter can be read standalone and provides a complete tutorial for that tool...In short, this is deserving of a place on your bookshelf. Highly recommended."

The book also gets 5 stars on the O'Reilly web site, with one reviewer saying "Consider this book as doing the grunt work and giving you the ability to make a decision on which tools to invest your valuable time resource."

My good friend Andy Glover also talks about Java Power Tools on his blog saying, among other things, "it’s a vade mecum for anyone serious about producing working software effectively."
