"As with any good teacher, this O’Reilly series attacks the material from a variety of angles. If you know it, or you’re a quick learner, you can breeze right through. If you’re like me, they try everything possible to make things comprehensible."
-- Dana Blankenhorn, Dana Blankenhorn & Paula Rooney, ZDNet.com

"Stop whatever is you are doing, run to your nearest Borders and buy this book. Don t bother [buying it online], as you'll have to wait a day or two even with express shipping. Trust me when I tell you that you want this book in your sweaty little palms NOW."
--Shiloh Morris, Nevada Java Users Group, June 2004

"[This was] the first time I've ever enjoyed reading a book on EJBs. I didn't think it was possible to be entertained by a book on EJBs, but this book did. (I think what won me over was the two page behind the EJB scenes graphics on pages 8 and 9. Any book that make me laugh about EJB is some kind of miracle.)"

"'HFE' is direct, to the point and drives the concept straight in to the brain. This book employs engaging common sense techniques to teach, which unfortunately is not so common. It marks the beginning of a new style of writing tech books, the way they were meant to be written. This book achieves what it claims to achieve, and clearly states what it does not achieve. Although casual, the content is coherent, precise, conspicuous, and lucid."

"Kathy and Bert strike again with their wacky ways. They'll approach a topic in just about any method they can think of to make you learn this stuff and they can think of a lot."
