Apress, the publisher, had the original idea for the book as a follow on to their book Founders at Work. And they knew me from when I wrote Practical Common Lisp for them and asked me to do this one. I tried to ask my interviewees about topics that would be of interest to any programmer with a broad interest in their craft.

Right I am referring to "Coders at Work".

@Peter

That's really a great idea as it will help many java developers like me. Hope you continue your contribution to this field. Good Luck.
