For those looking for Java specifics the later chapters contain the most useful information. Of primary interest was the discussion of the inner working of the GC, the JIT and the heap. The hints and special cases were useful guidelines and provided information on areas to start looking for optimization but were of less overall utility than the JVM discussions.
Style of book is light, examples are clear, I think every java developer should read this book for sure
Some readers here may dissect his examples further, but I think the author has already cautioned us at the beginning about the gain from tuning JVM parameters. Defaults JVM parameters will be good in the vast majority of cases. Overall, I would like to give a 3.5, but since I can't do that. I think 3 is a fair score.
However I found the JEE part was lacking in detail in comparison to the other parts.
