One of my favorite books types are Cookbooks. I like them because they tend to have lots of code examples, and a good explanation of what's going on and why.
The only thing I would have like to see is more break down the example code line by line or group of lines. I wanted to know why the author chose this style or used these methods.
Great reference book though. Full Review >

This is a pretty decent book. I'm new to Java but have an extensive development background.
I appreciated the exercises and examples. The only thing I really struggled with was Eclipse. I haven't used Eclipse in the past and so there was a steep learning curve for me.
I think this is a great book to get a decent understanding of the basics of Java. I will need a different book as a guide as I dive deeper into Java. Full Review >

Sometimes it's easy to have an entire framework reference at your fingertips rather than clicking through website pages. Bootstrap is a fantastic guide you will want handy as you learn the in's and out's of this framework. Full Review >
