While I havn't finished going through this book yet, it appears to be a very good resource for someone trying to get a jump on Java.

While not as detailed as some of the other resources out there, there are plenty of coding examples to illustrate and prove different programming concepts. The books takes the learn by doing approach and I like that.

There is one reason I gave this book 4 stars and that is spelling errors. Whiel there aren't a lot of spelling errors, there are enough for me to notice, and I'm not big on spelling. However, when you are writing/producing a book for something as syntax-specific as a programming language, you better be sure to have everything right.

Overall, a great book and a good teaching/ self-learning aid.

So far so good folks, I've made it to more than half of this book and found it really helpful. Of course, I know that this book is not enough for me to become a serious Java developer, but it gives me the OOP basis to build up on everything else.

I wish they do this series on new languages such as Python and Ruby

Format: Paperback
I've read about half of this book, and found it to be decent. The typo issues cited in the other reviews do exist, but I found them to be minor and easy to work around. I really like the examples & discussion of language fundamentals.

But there is one big problem... once you start getting to the point where typing all the examples becomes painful (about the GUI programming section), you discover that the "Companion Web Site" [...] no longer exists. Without the code samples, this book becomes worthless in a hurry.
