"As an experienced Java programmer and instructor, I enjoyed reading the book. Its friendly language makes it easy to read. With the real code samples and real commands, it is very practical to try the performance-tuning options and recommendations provided by the author. The quick summary sections, tool output visualizations, and performance results are very helpful in understanding the concepts."
