"I found this an interesting introduction that I had heard about but never explored, which would be a useful jumping off point if one wanted to implement such a system for the first time."
--Roger Whittaker, FLOSS UK/UKUUG Newsletter, September 2013

"I suggest this reading to all that are interested in the REST architecture or in the development of web services in general."
--Andrea Polci, Lugano Java User Group
