5Well....People..., Jun 3, 2023
Good Book - I think what you people don't realize is when the guy uses sloppy's better that way...programming doesnt't have to be harsh or brutal, I think Jesse is a great author, even though this isnt this book, I am very new to C++ and with the book 'teach urself c++ in 21 days' I found i could even skip ahead to a certain topic and read through the topics and discussion about it...and GET IT. The reason I think Jesse is a great author is that even though the grammar is a little sloppy, the books are very well organized and thorough (sp?)

3VERY Mediocre, Mar 15, 2023
I bought this book at a discount book wholeseller that sells off the leftover merchandise from book returns or out-of-business stores. These places usually have books that are a little out of date and aren't of the highest quality.
This book is both.
The book is aimed towards novices that want to learn Java as their first programming language or slightly more experienced programmers that are trying to learn Java. The examples in the book are kind of difficult for someone who has NEVER programmed, but it does go into great detail about the code line-by-line.
The real drawback to this book is the author's poor code wrting technique. His Java coding in no way resembles Sun's documentation, so if you're looking to learn good coding habits, this is NOT the book for you.
In short, the examples are good, but a little meaty for the "Dummies" crowd. This book can broaden your understanding of Java IF you're willing to correct the syntax as you go. A better complete-beginngers-guide would be the Sams TY Java2 in 21 days or the Wrox Beginning Java by Ivor Horton.

5Able to see it through..., Dec 25, 2022
This is the first Java book that I've been able to see through. It seems like too many books just throw snippets of code at me, along with the technical jargon, which I soon find boring, (think college textbooks(snore). But this one is lively, the author makes jokes, and he actually shows you how to program an entire application in Java. Try getting that experience anywhere.

Thank you Steven Haines.

3Some Book CD code does not compile?, Dec 3, 2022
I have been working with this book since October. I have had good success until Chapter 8. I have not been able to javac or java the code from the book. In these chaps, you are instructed to javac these programs [does that mean not to java them?] I have e-mailed Mr. Liberty with no repsonse. I have enjoyed working with this book so far [I've also worked with VB 6 Scr].
This is an excellent book to learn beginning Java 2 but some of the instructions in the book could be a little more clear.

3Starts out good, Oct 22, 2023
I thought the author gave a good foundation to the project that was discussed. The explanation of AWT tools was the best of all the 7-8 books on Java I own.

He did go a little too deep into the analysis process of program development. His chosen project (stock market analysis) was intended to use "one of everything" in the Java language but was too deep a venture for my liking.

Que's web site does not provide source code for the book and so I am stuck with a scratched disk - Ugg!
