Learning with the command line really gives you a fantastic grasp of the language, but it makes the process of learning much more difficult. With GUI being the norm and with so many IDEs out there, I am not sure why Oracle chose to go with a command-line only book. The book is all about reading and practice...which is great. But we really do not have many visual examples...again...because of command line. I am returning my copy to find another that makes learning Java a bit less daunting.
UPDATE: I do think Herbert could do a better job at defining certain words then help enforce the terms but that isn't worth taking a star away just a simple Google search here and there isn't a big deal. I also think some things can get a carried out a little too far and could be explained more simply and I also think some things can be a little bit more explained.
But the book does have a way to just make you love it when that eureka moment hits it makes you wanna just keep going also it's a pretty good feeling.
The price also can't go without being mentioned. I paid $19 for the book at the time of this review. My textbook for the course will be $140. However, there is no sacrifice in content quality that I've seen so far.
This book is a great way to get started in Java. Get comfortable with basic programming concepts in Scratch and you should have enough knowledge to understand most of the material.
