Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for someone new to programming. It's also a great next step for an experienced programmer learning Java. It is surprisingly easy reading for an expansive 700+ page book. The authors also have a great website: [...]

The book is full of short, self-contained sample programs that are easy to explore. The pages are decorated with helpful sidebar illustrations and descriptive elaborations of code. Sample results are often presented, which makes it easy to read through and understand how a given Java program works. The book includes instructive use of color (shades of blue) and greyscale printing to enhance the reading and learning experience.

The four major sections of the book are: Elements of Programming, Functions and Modules, Object-Oriented Programming, and Algorithms and Data Structures. Algorithms is a topic the authors are well known for; I'm certainly glad they've extended their repertoire here.

The "Anatomy of a Class" on page 377 is just one of many examples where the authors analyze and break down a code sample in a way that gives the reader a much deeper understanding of Java. The authors get you close to the code. The layout of this book makes it easy for you to think about Java and programming concepts as you read.

This is a comprehensive yet enjoyable book covering the essential elements of both Programming and Java.

Format: Paperback
I have a long experience in programming, as most of the reviewers found here. As one can imagine, this accounts for lots of books in FORTRAN, C, C++, Pascal, BASIC, Python, Perl, etc., over time, but none of them has been so fun to read and teach from, as this gem. In addition, there is a wealth of information in the book webpage, which makes it ideal for self-study.

This is the best book on programming among the many I've read. Sedgewick & Wayne concentrate on the programming part of "Programming in Java." There's a lot of information on various algorithms. There are a number of useful utility classes available on the books website. By using the utilities the student can focus on important programming idioms and methods, without getting too bogged down in the details. In contrast to many other beginning Java texts, the reader is treated with respect. Plus the exercises are a lot of fun!

The book is fabulous. It offers an intriguing insight into java for beginners {mostly students}. The extra problems in each exercise are highly creative and some of them offer a very good challenge. Overall a fantastic book for beginners in java.

Format: Paperback
Truly an excellent book: well-written, clear, and very interesting (unusual for a cs textbook). This book is a great introduction to programming, but also to the field of computer science, and is full of exciting examples of applications to problems in other fields, including physics and genomics. A real gem!

I highly recommend Introduction to Programming in Java: An Interdisciplinary Approach and the related course online, I think Sedgewick's books is perfect for someone just starting to learn programming or someone who wants to learn Java. Intro to Algorithms is a bonus in that book.

Format: Paperback
Kevin Wayne and Robert Sedgewick have put together an indispensable book for anyone looking to learn to program in Java for the first time. I used this book for an introductory programming class, and it was all I needed to make it through the course.

The text isn't dry-it's written as if the professors are talking to you directly. It's filled with useful examples, and jam packed with "cheat-sheet" style tables to help you memorize crucial commands and Java syntax.

Overall great book. Pairs well with the online resources that Sedgewick and Wayne make available on the book's website.
