Great literature round up Jeremy. Thanks.

As for your dissertation being *more than a 
lot of people want to plow through*, I had a quick
look and it looks like the prose is as easy to read as
a novel (maybe a Le Carre) compared to the
specifications, which I read last year. So I do
recommend it highly for any serious Java dev.
