I have about eight years experience with Java, but all I know about Spring is that a lot of software engineers where I work use it, and if I want to get the software engineering positions I'd really like to have, I've got to learn it. My son gave me the fourth edition of the book Spring in Action, by Craig Walls. Is that a good book for a Spring novice to read to learn how to use Spring?

In my opinion, it is the book on Spring.

i have read both books. my opinion than pro spring better - almost all examples from Pro Spring is repeatable. In Spring in action there is more places where I stuck and have spend much time to get where is problem, i think that this book not for novice (Also I think than there is interesting topics in this book).
If you try only one source - choose book i suggested.
Also you already have Spring in Action - try it.

Guys already explained a lot. I myself own and read that book, so I learned a lot. It is useful for the Spring novices as book starts from the very ground explaining what is Spring, why it is, as well as for more experienced as probably everyone could find something they might didn't know before. So I could recommend it too.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
