"If you buy the book as a satirical take on other programming instruction books, then you may very well be delighted... It's a lark." -- Slashdot.org
From the Back Cover
There is simply no better way to learn Java than to have the pineal gland of an expert Java programmer surgically implanted in your brain. Sadly, most HMOs refuse to pay for this career saving procedure, deeming Java to be too experimental. At last there is an alternative treatment for those of us who cannot wait for sweeping health care reforms.
Mr. Bunny's Big Cup O' Java is recommended by n out of ten doctors, where n is any integer you wish to make up to impress an astoundingly gullible public.
The book begins with an overview of the book, and quickly expands into the book itself. Just look at the topics covered:
- Mr. Bunny's rucksack
- Farmer Jake's overalls
"I sincerely hope this book increases the donor pool."
The Mr. Bunny series is supported, endorsed, and authored by Carlton Egremont III, Esquire, recluse, and all-around weirdo. It is the official place to go when you simply must go someplace official. The books in this series provide no information whatsoever. The series is an indispensable resource for Janet from Reno.

It's certainly a Dave-Barry-meets-Joe-Programmer kind of book, and I have to admit, even though it's hard to take this stuff seriously (ever other sentence is a play on words or programming concepts), the metaphors still explained some things very clearly.
I'll never forget Inky, popping plates off a stack of plates in response to stack push and pop commands.
If you're willing to take yourself less seriously and embrace the fact that programmers are really geeks, then you will laugh at this book.
From Mr. Bunny's first appearance in chapter 1 (his first words are, of course, "Hello World!") to the last chapter's Home Sweet Home Page, this book is worth reading - if you can stand to laugh that hard.
What this is is a very amusing read if you're a programmer and a geek and have a strange sense of humor. It's a good book to leave in the bathroom if you often have other programmer geeks over. Especially if you don't mind some raised eyebrows from everybody else when the person in the bathroom stays in there for half an hour, giggling the entire time.
Anyone who knows the difference between an interface and a class will love this.
