As mentioned in earlier posts to comp.lang.ada, John's book has
received only a few positive reviews and a number of very negative
ones at  The unfortunate effect is that the summary
"stars" rating -- what one sees initially, without digging -- is IMHO
very misleading and does damage to a fine book.

Several people have indicated on c.l.a. that they had a high regard
for the book, especially the second edition.  Let me suggest to
everyone that has both read and enjoyed John's book to go to, do a ISBN search on 0201342936, and enter a review.
