Subject Re: New Struts2 Book : Feedback Requested

Some comments;

1) Reduce the amount of side bars. At the moment the readability is impaired 
by having two right hand bars reducing the meat of your book to only 2/3rds 
of the width of the page.

2) Put up more than one chapter. If you want comments on your formatting 
then we need to see the whole book.

3) You need more background explanation. The section "Developing Your First 
Struts2 Application" doesn't explain what the files you've given actually 
do. It ends up being more of a "cut, paste, run, sit back and wonder why you 
still wouldn't know how to change it".

4) Improve your English.  The phrase "Following are the files we need in 
struts2demo project and the purpose of each of them is also given." sounds 
like it's come from a badly translated manual.

If you want a good example of a readable book with excellent explanations 
have a look at Ians' "Starting Struts 2" book, I've picked up a couple of 
things from it and have found it easy to read (which reminds me I must go 
and post a review on Amazon).
