There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you are brand new to programming (or even switching from another language like Python or Ruby), I recommend starting with something like "Head First Java", "Thinking in Java" by Eckel (dated, but still applicable), or "Java, How to Program" by the Deitel's (wordy, but lots of examples that build off the code from previous chapters) There are probably many good books geared towards new Java developers, but these books will give you a foundation in basic software construction and design patterns.
Regardless, I think this book is applicable to Java developers of all experience levels, but it should probably not be used as your entry point to learning Java from scratch.
It would have been nice to have the Java 9 changes consolidated in a single section (so Java 8 programmers could go directly to the changes); however, this is a reference tome, not a Java 9 primer.
So if you are only interested in the Java 9 changes, then this is probably not the book for you. Much of that information is in the book but you will have to go through each Chapter to find it (with a couple of exceptions).
If you are looking for an updated Java programming reference, I believe that you will be happy with this book.
