As a compulsive computer programming autodidact, I rate *Simply Java* the best computer language book I have ever read.

I did most of the examples and learned Java along the way.

This is a text book such as a high school or junior college might use to support a Java class. There are lots of excercises, the programs come quickly. But the book does a poor job of teaching the basic precepts of Java.

As a compulsive computer programming autodidact, I rate *Simply Java* the best computer language book I have ever read. Java is a hard language to learn. Most books get you bogged down in abstract exercises. *Simply Java* gets you writing practical GUI applications almost immediately. It's worth every penny. I'm going to stop writing this review right now and study another chapter.

I have been a mainframe developer for 16 years and very resistant to switch to objected oriented programming. Let me tell you something: "Simply Java Programming" has changed my attitude. For the first time, I finished a compuer book from cover to cover and enjoyed every bit of it!!! I've recommended the book to my colleagues and one of them just purchased the same book yesterday.

What I like most about this book is the practical / tutorial approach which got me interested in the JAVA world.

I'm an experienced C++ programmer with access to JBuilder version 5. I did most of the examples and learned Java along the way. I was able to contruct simple GUI tools for my job as a software engineer based on the examples from the book.
The inside is beautifully layed out in color. It's one of the reasons the book is expensive.
I am having trouble getting the database examples(ATM&Bookstore) to work. So close to perfection as a learning tool. I imagine there would be more frustration if I did not know how to debug from an IDE. Subtract one star if you are not an experienced programmer with a proper IDE.
