Great book on I18N, but I believe some more detail could have been given on the gotchas of using Unicode. I still think it is worthy of 4 stars however.

Thorough and comprehensive
It's true that Deitsch's book offers little more subject matter than Sun's excellent Internationalization chapter of the Java tutorial at their web site. But it has the virues of being a book, which you can curl up with, thumb around in, and mark up. And it covers the Sun topics in more depth, with a wealth of examples.
Java is the programming language that built in language support from the ground up, and *Java Internationalization* tells you how to take advantage of this feature. If you are writing Java code for international markets, this is your one-stop shop for a complete textbook on the subject.

A good overview of internationalization
This book is a good review of internationalization in Java. It covers the basic topics like time & date format, string separation, property files, resource bundles, languages methods, etc.
My only complaint about the book is it really doesn't have any information that isn't already available on Sun's web site, and it seems that the most critical concepts have little or no examples while on the other hand, it gives detailed time & date format information for every language in the world; even Esperanto.
I wish the book had focused more on code and examples, and less on the locale specific details.
