Useful book for understanding the big picture, not useful if you are looking for examples you can directly implement in your own code. Most important message for me: store an event as pure as possible and include where it came from. If you need alterations or generalisations do not change the original event but create new ones, link them to the original ones and process the new ones.
Don't pay full price. Extremely academic overview of event-based systems, taxonomies of kinds of events, design patterns for event-based programming, etc. A few long examples in C# and VB.NET. Emphasizes multi-machine distributed event-processing systems. Worth a skim to remind yourself why events are great for decoupling modules in a system. You can have my copy if you pass it on.
