From the Back Cover
In time-tested Visual QuickStart style, the book doesn't just tell you how to program Java applications for the Web--it shows you, breaking the world of Java into step-by-step tasks and providing the code behind the examples. Thanks to the straightforward, task-based format, you can learn what you need to know, when you need to know it. Java newbies can work from cover to cover; more seasoned programmers can use the page tabs to go straight to a specific topic. The author of the original edition of this book has completely revised it for Java 2, including four new chapters on debugging, Swing, servlets, and writing a news ticker. You'll soon find out for yourself why Internet programmers love this cross-platform language.

However, this book does not cover a lot of material. For example, anything that isn't directly related to building a GUI. The only topics are the few basic classes, functions, operators, etc. that you need to make check boxes, etc. If you buy this book, you will still need another reference to learn the rest of Java.
I gave this four stars since I believe it does what it set out to do although I would've preferred a more comprehensive book.
