It has many beautiful images, but the content is not better than the free administrator guide from Liferay.
If you want to setup a real world portal server, i.e. with security, minimal customizations, etc, this is not the right book. With this you can configure a stainer like security protected server.
I think a book should have at least 1 line of java code in it to have a sub-title 'Java-based Portal Applications Development'. There is no development and this is definitely not a book that a 'pro' could use for anything other than holding down printouts of useful documentation from another source.
I do not even recommend this book to the newest of newbies. If you found your way to this review you already know half of the stuff in the book, like how to use self descriptive user interfaces.
I bought this book online and it took me less than a day of searching for anything java or development related to realize that this book has nothing even remotely resembling its title between the covers. Deceptive section titles make you think there is going to be some instruction on how to develop something to run in Liferay. This is a marketing scheme not a book.
Not intended for programmers who whish to integrate liferay with other systems or who whish to write their own portlets.
Mary Shelley's 'Frankensein' contains far more practical information about portal application development while having about the same amount of information about Java portal technology and Liferay API.
I've found Apress books to be subpar at best but this one is so useless the publishing company should be shamed. I suggest you take a look at reviews before buying anything from this publisher.
