When it comes to MIDP and J2ME books, there is no better author than Jonathan Knudsen. It was about 4-5 years ago that he published his first J2ME book, and it was that book that I learned J2ME very quickly.
Jonathan is one of those writers that can break down a technology to its simplest parts and then explain it to us so that we get it quickly.
In "Kicking Butt" Jonathan does it again. Keeping us up to date with the latest developments of J2ME. It is great to see him back with this new book to teach the next generation of J2ME developers.
The only thing I wish I saw was the part about device manufacturers not implementing specs 100% and making some parts of J2ME (Bluetooth comes to mind) a heck to work with and figure out what is wrong, when it comes down to a company not implementing the Spec completely, but claiming it does.
