It is good, so is "Mastering Regular Expressions" - which is probably
better, in fact, and covers a lot of the same ground, but deals with
regular expressions in other software too. Such as the frankly terrifying
(but cool) ones in perl.
Buy both if you can find them among the 1000s of Java and .NET
books that are clogging up the shelves these days (And god help you if
you're actually looking for a computer science book rather than a "how to
waste 6 months programming something in Java/C# that would take a day in Lisp
or even [incr tcl], for pity's sake..." book)
