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.

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."

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.)

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.

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
Having worked on Legacy systems throughout my career, I had problems trying to grasp the Object Oriented Programming concept. This book made it fairly simple and I say "fairly", compared to other books I read on the subject. The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5, is because it does not have enough Real World application examples. Another thing about this book is that you really cannot skip anything, or it will come back to haunt you as you move on further into the book. That's why before moving on to another chapter, I reread the current one more than a few times until it sank in.

I used this book for my Java Intro to Programming course. Solid book. Easy to understand and plenty of examples. It is often criticized as being too wordy. The authors do go into great detail on the object-oriented programming concepts. So in that sense I do think its great for programming newbies or people that have only been exposed to procedural programming. If your looking to pick up Java but you know another language and you have a firm grasp on OOP concepts, I recommend you pick up a different book.
