Review: By Greg Nawrocki (Complete review avaiable at:
The very first part on key concepts and the first chapter in the GT4 security section are amongst the best and most concise explanations of those topics I have ever read, and believe me, I've read plenty. The explanations on key concepts of grid computing, OGSA, WSRF and Web Services may indeed be just the medicine the confused Grid masses need to make the light bulb go on it their heads.

If you buy this book for nothing more than the first 39 pages, and the first 12 pages of the GT4 Security section, you will walk away happy.
