I read this book from SafariOnline. The book is a fantastic read, ridden with examples. The reader typically learns by example. It's a no fluff, just stuff to the point that saves you a lot of time. The book covers employing contemporary 3rd-party libraries where required depending on the use-cases, all blending well with the respective topic/situation.
I'd say this book is from one pragmatic programmer to a busy, impatient and hungry programmer wanting to get his hands dirty.
