    Comments about oreilly Gradle Effective Implementation Guide:

    I'm a beginner user of Gradle so the first couple of chapters were very helpful providing basic tutorials on how to write tasks, work with files and write build scripts. The practical examples given in a step-by-step manner were probably the strongest aspects of the book.

    It's very well-written and an easy read (I finished in 3 hours). As I continue to learn Gradle, the book will be a great resource for more advanced concepts. Highly recommended for a beginner like me or an intermediate user.
