I've checked the amazon.com description - 600 pages - sounds like an encyclopedia. Must have been a lot of work! Like anyone interested in a book, I'd like to know what's in it - like checking out the table of contents and flipping through pages at a book store.
So, re: the examples - I often feel (as I know many do) that it would be nice in at least some situations, to be able to jump right in with a related example and just customize to get what I want. I might be leaning a bit toward lobbying authors for a better world as I see it - but for now, an answer about GWT in Action will do.

...also the examples in the book are all available in electronic format so it is really easy to just grab the code and tweak to see what your additions will do (you get the code for all this application and more: http://dashboard.manning-sandbox.com)
I've read about this kind of thing at the checkout counter. That's where I met this tiny ad:
