This book is not an introduction to REST. But if you are already aware of what REST is, and are looking for a set of solutions to implement it, this is a book you must own. Practical and useful, this is definitely a practitioners handbook. The only drawback (in my view) is that the examples are mostly in AtomPub, rather than in JSON or XML.

This book is a great collection of recipes to cook your web services. Unfortunately it's a bit outdated, but from my perspective most of its parts are still relevant. It's sort of a book that's easy to read and easy to comprehend, i would recommend it to anyone who strives to build robust and scalable web apps.

My score 4/5

Go to book for RESTful web services. As the book claims, it is a cookbook. Useful as a reference while developing RESTful Web Services. I liked the chapters on Security and Caching.

My experience with this book was similar to that described in Charles Bihis' review. I also read it cover to cover, and have found it useful for foundational reference. I highly recommend this introduction to RESTful web services for software engineers.

I'm still reading this, but I think this should be essential reading for anyone writing or designing a remote API.
