Eclipse 4 Plug-in Development by Example Beginner's Guide is truly a definitive reference for the Newbies and a pocket guide for Geeks. The clear & precise explanation made this book noninterruptive for reading & fluent for understanding. 

Targeting the noobs, this book starts with basics & dives into the deep parts so that it will be a great kickstart to the people who know how to write “Hello World” in Eclipse & use it basics.

I will highly recommend this book to students, professionals & strugglers. They should give it try, and I am also sure they will understand more than they expect.

I will divide chapters as follows for sake of simplicity:

Chpt 1: Do you know what PDE is?

Chpt 2, 3, 4: Compare your Java Programming Concepts with the Eclipse Framework to get correlative understanding of mechanisms.

Chpt 5, 6: Start diving into visual interface

Chpt 7: Get into the internals of the Eclipse 4 framework

Chpt 8: Start deployment right now!

Chpt 9, 10: Testing & automation for Plugins in the Eclipse Environment

Now congratulate yourself! You are an Eclipse Developer :)

So, in my opinion, this book is from start to finish a step-up development paradigm, and I think each Eclipse savvy person should buy it and speed up his development!
