What people are saying - Write a review
Beware of the many negative reviews of this book. I get the impression that a lot of people want to show off how smart and knowledgeable they are by giving this book a poor review. This book is an excellent and well-rounded look at what GAE is and more or less how you would go about using it. Anybody who is unfamiliar with GAE will come away from this book with a detailed, concrete understanding of what it does and whether it is the right tool for the job.
You won't really learn how to actually create a GAE site, there are other books for that. The purpose of this book is to give anyone, beginners and veterans alike, a good understanding of where GAE fits into the web habitat. I believe it does that job quite well, thank you very much.
