Java Server Faces in Action by Kito Mann is in my exclusive humble opinion is one of the most terrible programming book I have browsed upon. I didn't care long to read it intently. IMO, the discussion is scattered in a haphazard way that confuses the reader. The direction lacks goal. It looks like a combination of different articles on the different topics on JSF that were put together to make a book. I didn't even see a clear and concise discussion on Backing Beans which is most important in developing web applications with JSF. And the book is 1000 plus pages! Amf! To think that I have read a good book about JSF (I forgot the title) that is really good and fewer pages.
