More of a reference
The reader from Columbia, SC, said it right: this book is a reference, not a place to learn J2ME. Like the other books in O'Reilly's "In a Nutshell" family, the book has two parts: a quick rundown on the features of J2ME, and a reference part on all the details of the language. The book's audience is someone who already knows something about the J2ME platform, such as how it looks, how it runs on a PC, and how it produces the code you can upload to a device. If you want to see a tutorial type of book on J2ME, you won't find it here. Since I never learned Java completely, I find it difficult to follow the book. If you already know Java well, you may find the book easier to follow, although again you won't find detailed, step-by-step sample programs.
In short, probably great for someone already programming in J2ME; not helpful for someone wishing to learn J2ME.

Need to improve....
Should improve description with short
and clear language. In a lot of places,
the text is wordy and does not get the point across.

I liked it, it allowed me (senior level engineer) to learn enough to get some work done in short order.
