I second this. In general I find the getting started guide very helpful.
It explains a lot of key concepts step by step. I'd just like to mention a
few things to be considered for future improvements:

1. it's nice to have the default menus in the sample to do project
but it looks like a little magic to me when I read the guide. If would
be great to explain a little bit how the menu works and what are
the options if you don't want the menu there, or ways to customize
an application in the context of how Lift works. This is usually not
a problem for page central frameworks such as Stripes, or page/component
central frameworks such as Wicket.

2. it'd be also very helpful to maybe briefly describe recommended ways
to do lift development with tools such as sbt, JRebel and eclipse, or other
IDEs. The tools and setups could be rather dynamic. I think the web page
is a better place for these things than the book. If not in the getting started
guide,  a separate FAQ or a link to a separate page from the getting started
guide would also do.
