    "Complete Garbage"
    What disappointed you about Java Programming?

    To give an idea of the depth of this book, it is not until the very end that arrays are talked about. Then the book is over. That's it. Moreover, most of the last half of the book is sheer code, so it makes absolutely no sense for the audio version to exist. All you hear is "semicolon... int x equals three semicolon" Seriously? If you're going to make an audio version of a Java book, then wouldn't it make more sense to go over all of Java's features and concepts as opposed to literally saying out loud the code to create an array or to print to the console?

    A huge waste of time and money.

    "Fundamentals for Creating Your First Program"

    Excellent book! Programming has become a thorn in me since the time I tried to do it. But when I have read this book, I have gain knowledge of the easy ways of programming. This book has introduced HTML, CSS and Javascript for me to improve and become a great web developer. With this book, I've learned the basics of these languages that this book has introduced me. This is really helpful for me in becoming founded of these languages and grow in the knowledge of the use of them. So much worth recommending book!

    Before you start practicing various types of examples given in this reference, we assume that you are already aware about computer programs and computer programming languages. This tutorial has been prepared for the beginners to help them understand the basic to advanced concepts related to Java Programming language. For most of the examples given in this tutorial, you will find a ‘Try it’ option, which you can use to execute your Java programs at the spot and enjoy your audio.

    "kinda cool"

    Not too bad of a listen. As far as listening in the car, it is inspiring but toward the end it's a bit hard to follow. Probably need some eyeballs on it and a computer in front of you.

    "This is a pretty interesting audio book"

    If you want to excel in a language you need to fully understand about it, and this audio book can shape a good foundation. It has so many things to learn to like variables and data structures or basically all you need to be able to start your own program. This is a pretty interesting audio book and I highly recommend it!

    "Since I am now a working person"

    I am a college graduate and my taken course was all about programming. That is why the new generation of students who are also in this strand ask me about it. Since I am now a working person I just suggested them to try this audio book and it never failed them, this book helped them so much.
