Note: If you want Swing only, and are not interested in JavaFX, ignore this review.
I bought this (AND volume I) months ago, to learn the latest Java and focus on the UI in detail (after learning basics). Now I reach UI sections and... SURPRISE... NO JavaFX? WHAT? (JavaFX has been around since early 2014.) The UI was a KEY reason for purchasing. Swing (the UI before JavaFX) is 35% of the book. SO much is intertwined in the UI, I just can't believe it lacks JavaFX. (If you want Swing, then this book is good.)
NOTE: The next version (11) of Volume I still has only Swing. It does no good to get the later version (so far). So if you want JavaFX, You may want to look elsewhere.
The code examples have been tested and work as advertised and are designed to illustrate the preceding discussion. They are easily modified by the learner to further explore the concept or add previous learnings - i.e. there is no code bloat, just what is necessary to illustrate the topic at hand. Both volumes assume the reader has some knowledge and competency in at least one other programming language. The object oriented concepts can be picked up while going through volume I.
A very enjoyable book, I highly recommend it.
