    "Well done!"

    This is a well written little Java book. It goes into detail about the background and history of Java, and follows up by explaining some of the functions of Java and how to use them. The author provides a step-by-step guide at the end to build a simple program. There's plenty for beginners here, but not enough to overwhelm them with information. Well done!

    "helped me"

    Learning JAVA is not a piece of cake. You really have to understand how the code works or else you won’t get a good result or any result at all.

    "The best guide about java programming"

    Java programming: master’s handbook, the book pretty well covers all the basics.
    This book helps you to use Java more efficiently and gives you the idea when to break some rules if necessary.

    "glad to have this book"

    This book is the most comprehensive text on Java I could find. It should be for the price. Unlike other books on Java, it actually has a glossary (!), it actually diagrams common Java statements such as "public static void main(String [] args)"--THIS IS THE ONLY BOOK ON JAVA THAT EXPLAINED TO ME EXACTLY WHAT THAT FREAKING STATEMENT MEANS!!!
    It ain't cheap, but it's well worth it.

    "excellent"

    I had zero experience with java before reading this book and it was assigned during two of my courses (so I have officially the whole thing). I thought it was the best of all my text books; it helped me to understand the basics of java as well as the basics of object-oriented programming. The exercises that followed each chapter were challenging and fun. Would definitely recommend for anyone trying to learn java

    "one of my best book"

    I really like the layout of this text book. My college course uses this text book to teach basic Java. So far I am very impressed with the overall learning experience that this book provides. I have looked at a tonne of books that teach Java and this is definitely one of the best

    "amazing"

    I had to get this for a Java course. It covers a lot of basic concepts, but it also misses a lot. There's very little on GUI design and no mention of design patterns or concepts you actually need if you have a job coding Java. I'd recommend it to beginners.

    "Love this book...."

    It's not just a step by step how-to-do, it explains how it works in detail. At the end there is a simple walk-through that meant so much more, due to the preceding chapters.

    The difference in this book is the detailed discussion on how it was developed and how to use it. This book gives information that I have failed to find in so many others.
