5The best java book I have ever read, Mar 8, 2023
I have tried couple of other Java books earlier, but this one is the best of them all. The clear and concise writing style along with appropriate examples makes this book one of the best in the class. This book is useful to a wide variety of readers, starting from front-end developers to backend and web developers.

It would be great to see some discussion on PACKAGE and CLASSPATH in future edition.

5Indispensable Resource, Jul 24, 2023
I am a CS student and UNLV taking some Java courses. Because of transfer credits I got into a Java class that was way over my head. My instructor recommended this book to me to help me catch up and it did far more than that for me. I read the first several chapters in a weekend and it all made sense - the authors started from the ground up and clearly explained how programming languages work and specifically how Java implements everything. Most books tell you how to do something, how to accomplish some kind of task, but don't explain the reasoning behind it - this book is different! Not only can I write Java programs but I understand what they are doing under the hood!

I finished the book within a month, following all of the examples and not only did I get an 'A' in my course last semester, but I have built an MVC Servlet-based application and deployed it on Tomcat.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that is learning Java, it is an indispensable resource. It will help you understand why Java does stuff, not just how to use it!

5As the title suggests, it is a great primer for Java, Apr 12, 2023
The authors have done a wonderful job. I am a senior-level programmer/DBA with decades of experience in dozens of languages EXCEPT Java. Their book has great, accelerated coverage of AWT, Swing, Threads and other topics.

I particularly like the way they discuss AWT separate from Swing -- other Java texts that I have purchased have the two technologies very intermingled. It is very helpful sometimes to just program in old AWT since it is very compatible and supported for web programming.

5Excellent , Informative and Useful, Jan 18, 2023
This book stands out in the crowd of Java books. Steve has done it again. Steve's authority in Java technologies from UI to Server development is clearly visible thorughout the book. Anyone who is looking for a generic introduction to serious level programming in Java, this is THE book. Complex technologies are presented in a simplistic way for anyone to follow it easily . I completed the book in three days , cover-to-cover and still refers to it. Outstanding work. Thanks to Steve and Stephen.
