Yes, this book is definitly worth it's price. I'm used to have it lying beside my keyboard while coding plugins. Even after a long time of coding in Eclipse you'll see your self spending some time and learning about some special concepts from Eclipse. There are not so much codesections that could be copy&pasted, but they will show you how to gather your information yourself, without long and ugly examples.
The TestDrivenDevelopment was very new to me and so I had my problems extracting some details from the code. There are some Graphs created with their own tool called Spider which I found also not to be that useful.

I had played around with plugins before, but this book opens you new horizonts. It helps you not only to write eclipse plugins, but to write them WELL-DONE. I was really intrigued by the book, and in particular by the depth and power of the eclipse architecure.
Many practical examples, useful patterns, and a concise, entertaining style round up the picture, not to mention the practical demonstration of implementing XP and Test Driven Development.
