I'd also recommend at least some experience with Maven and some experience with command line. This book really isn't going to teach you any one of these technologies. If you don't have Java experience going in, you're going to have no idea what they're talking about.
As an intermediate level programmer, this book was very easy to understand. If I tried to read this book as a beginner I'd probably be lost. I'd recommend this book along with Dropwizard's official guide - https://dropwizard.github.io/dropwizard/getting-started.html.
Update: Major complaint on the Kindle version. When you have to type out code, sometimes you'll want to copy and paste imports. It's very annoying to copy and paste anything from the Kindle PC version, it adds a line about where the pasted information originated. I've ended up typing everything manually while following examples. (I could just download the source code, which is available - link in the book - but I'd rather build it out to get a better understanding)
This book assumes that you already know all the libraries that DropWizard uses, such as Jersey, Jetty, Hibernate, etc.
So if you are already familiar with libraries that DropWizard uses, this book can give you a quick tour of how to DropWizard enable you to develop stable and efficient RESTful Web Services in a short period of time. If haven't used Jersey, Jetty, JDBI, or any other libraries that DropWizard uses, you will most likely to be lost as you read this book.
Not a single diagram to help understand how things fit together,
No explanation of theory.
Unfortunately this seems to be the only book on this topic.
It seems a like developer documentation packaged as a book, but the book needs more.
