Quite not what I expected it to be
After reading the Vol. 1, I expected quite a bit from the volume 2. May be I am not there yet to understand what the authors are trying to emphasize here. I found some of the material from vol.1 covered to much deeper extend. But the framework from the reusability point of view is missing. Some of the topics covered here are great indeed, especially chapter 5, 6 and 7. Other than that I found this book to be a quick browse and keep it away.

A good overview (Vol. 1 continued)
A good book to begin learning ACE (not TAO!). Well written, illustrated. Very high level though, keep that in mind, no depth. Also, some parts are overloaded with trivialities, for a book of this kind that's out of place, I think. Very similar to the online docs. Not brilliant, but decent; a good read for those starting to work with ACE, move to it after having read vol.1.

Well-written book for eligant power code warriors
This is a well written book documenting many of the eligant and powerful frameworks and idioms used in the ACE library. I've been using ACE for over 7 years to implement portable, concurrent, networked, distributed applications and it's great to see a well-written book like this finally being published. I would highly recommend it as a must have reference for all serious ACE programmers who strive to develop powerful, flexible and portable networked applications. It is also an extremely valuable resource for programmers who want to get introduced and up and running on the concepts and application of some very valuable frameworks.
