Instant OSGi Starter quick review

I had the chance to review the OSGi starter book (thanks to linkedin & Dyson D’ Souza).
This book performs what it says in a masterly way. In addition, I enjoyed it provides pointers to good practice, the right tools and to OSGi communities. I have experienced OSGi for more than 2 years now and I agree completely that the book provides as information.

I highly recommend this book, especially for beginners,  and I give it five stars rating.

Brief overview: Book composes of around 50 Pages, Learn something new in an Instant! A short, fast, focused guide delivering immediate results, discover the basic tenets of the Open Services Gateway initiative and modular programming, gain familiarity with OSGi tooling, gain exposure to key OSGi patterns such as Whiteboard and Extender, find more information and supporting communities for OSGi developers etc.
