    Comments about oreilly SAP ABAP Advanced cookbook:

    This is a good reference book, compared to a lot of books out there that have the same information you can find online or in SAP help, this is a good book to have on the shelf to refer to often. The examples are all useful with enough information for you to know what's possible, if your looking for detailed explanations and concepts this is not that type of book. Each topic is touched on with an example but not a lot of depth. This is not a criticism as in this one book you'll cover everything from persistent classes to Web Dynpro.

    I would recommend this to experienced programmers as its full of how to examples that you'll go back to again and again.
