There are already several books about AspectJ—one of its major advantages.... My favorite is AspectJ in Action.

Rod Johnson, Creator of the Spring Framework in J2EE Development without EJB

One of the clearest expositions of AOP and its benefits that I have seen.... It is obvious that a lot of care and attention has gone into the preparation of the material.

Adrian Colyer, AspectJ Project Lead, in The Computer Journal

I would highly recommend AspectJ in Action to anyone who is interested in AOP.... I liked the practical angle, and you could tell that Ramnivas has really used AOP/AspectJ on his projects.

...real solutions to tough problems.

Chris Bartling, Identix, Inc.

Laddad brings to the professional community a valuable book, to support AOP tutoring and adoption...a well-constructed, well-balanced book that delivers what it promises.

I started reading at 11 PM and couldn’t stop.... It’s a must-read for anyone interested in the future of programming.

Arno Schmidmeier, AspectSoft

This book is to aspect-oriented programming what the Gang of Four book is to design patterns.
