Be aware, if your buying the Kindle Edition of this book, there is no Access-Code to the Pearson publisher web-site, normally included in the paper edition, which provides additional video and help information. You can however, buy an Access-Code from the publisher for $30! ... so add that to the cost of your Kindle Edition.

That just about says it all. This would be my choice. For all around coverage, clear program examples, a broad, up to date range of topics and precise, consistent, accurate explanations, I'd have to go with this Deitel 9th edition. Great treatment of Multithreading, GUI programming, events, all the standard OO stuff. I like the inclusion of many Java "peripheral" technologies like JSON, REST, SOAP, MySQL, JavaDB, Apache, GlassFish, JavaServer Faces, jnlp, and others. The book has a nice integration of the use of NetBeans, which is now a fully mature Java dev platform that works with the database and server apps. And the website has more than the full complement of online resources. (I am assuming I would be stuck on an island with an internet connection.)

It is an OK book if you already know other programming languages and familiar with object oriented programming. However, if Java is your first programming language, I do not recommend this book. Information presented in a way that is not easy to follow. Also, many things are "assumed" - not explained. You will have to memorize things instead of understanding what you are doing and why. Programming examples explained in the book are easy, but exercises at the end of each chapter are challenging for people who never programmed before. You are simply not presented with techniques you need to know in order to create some programs. That is why you may feel frustrated.

If you are new to programming, I highly recommend the book "Introduction to Java Programming" by Danial Liang. It is very easy to follow. Liang uses clear and simple language explaining every detail. Case studies are well explained too. Actually, if you read this book and go through worked out case studies, you can do exercises in Deitel's book "Java: How to Program."

This is a very comprehensive book. It's size may be quite intimidating but once you start reading, it won't seem so anymore. The text explains programming in such an easy way that anyone can learn Java. It also has some very good exercises and a lot of online resources. This particular edition doesn't come with a CD though like the other editions but all the contents of the CD are online as part of the resources the book comes with. This is a much better approach as I always seem to break or scratch my CDs anyway. The authors are very accessible too; just send them an email and they reply promptly. I will highly recommend this book to anyone who really wants to learn Java with ease.

Format: Paperback
I don't usually write reviews, but felt the need to because this is absolutely the best and most comprehensive book out there in regards to Java programming. Java: How To Program succeeds in being both a tutorial and a reference. The book is filled with a significant amount of example code, which I found easy to follow. The authors provide excellent comments in the code examples to help the reader follow it more effectively. The colors and graphics make this dense text engaging and readable. I am impressed by the thorough explanations, but the text is also succinct enough as to not be horribly wordy. This book really does include something valuable for any level of Java programmer (from the novice to the advanced.) My only criticism is the author's consistent use of the printf command, which I believe is better suited for other programming languages. Even though this book is quite costly, it is worth every penny if you are a serious Java programmer.

Format: Paperback
I have been programming for about a year now, and found that despite being relatively relaxed with it - because my own laziness I missed out on some of the fundamentals of programming. All in all I thought I needed more practice, to read more code and thoroughly test my abilities and intuition on even the most basic of problem sets.

This book has thus far, done it all for me. It's incredibly well done, very in depth without going into talkative detail - yet has all you need for Java. The exercises are by far the most enjoyable aspect, they test everything - rigorously and 70% of them have the answers in the book as well. The coding problems are inventive and test all you've learned throughout the chapter as well. There are about 10-20 of those at the end of each chapter.

All in all, this is the best Java book out there.

A good book like a good teacher makes all the difference. This is an excellent book for beginners in Java. It should not be classified as 'entry-level' since it quickly teaches you to build all the cool whiz stuff that you typically deal with. Once you master this, it will be easier to proceed to more complex stuff.

This book on Java is definitely a must read. I had to get this book for my Object Oriented Class a few semesters ago and I am still into it. There are many things this book goes over. Please understand, this book goes over the general basics in each section.

The most intriguing part about the book was the Data Structures portion in the back. It is definitely one of the most important parts of programming when speaking of efficiency. I had no idea of Data Structures before this book. It was a good intro to certain topics on performance. I ended up getting another book specifically for Data Structures and the basics learned from Java How To Program helps you tremendously when stepping into more advanced books.

This book gives the reader a general over view of the hosted topics. You will definitely come away a better programmer who thinks more theoretical than hands on. (Which is definitely a good thing). The book emphasizes, like any computer science or software engineer major should, the quality in design before code.

The one draw back from this book, that others actually may like, is the amount of code that is in here. For an intro to most of these topics I felt some of the code was drawn out. I like snippets. So this is definitely a personal preference.

I recommend this book to all levels of developers. There are definitely topics that are covered that even some advanced sw developers skim, skip over, or just never learn in their careers. For beginners, having access to Oracles site is also a huge help when going through this book. (Really that is standard for any book based on Java).

You will not regret getting this book. The Deitel brothers are pretty good at what they do, to say the least.
