The book is written in 2007, so some of the information has changed since. But great explanation of how a Restful Service should be structured. (ResourceOrientedArchitecture, use of HTTP request methods, linking of resources....)

The book uses Ruby to talk about most of the implementation (3 chapters), with some Java (Reslet) and Python (Django). This book will not tell you how to implement things in a language, but how to structure your service to be resetful.

Some of outdated information:
HTML5 - in the book talked about while still in design, stuff was still being changed
JSON was discussed briefly, but not considered a standard.
RSS was discussed in great detail (although no longer active).

I bought this book as a junior developer trying to learn how to better build restful web services. I did not find it insightful nor useful for building my first professional web service. The book seems to offer too much information on how the XML and HTTP protocols work and not enough on how to build restful web services in a maintainable, scalable, or secure way. In my opinion, this book was written correctly for the incorrect audience.

Clearly explains the advantages of RESTful services and how they should be implemented. An inspiration to simplify is always refreshing.

If you've been wondering about all of the recent talk about REST, this is the first book to start with.
