Media praise for Java 2D Graphics

3rd Runner up, Best Book, 2000 Java Developers Journal Readers' Choice Awards

"a pleasure to read and makes it easy to understand and use the many new features provided with the Java 2D API" --Arthur Gittleman, Computing Reviews July 1999

"Java 2D Graphics is not one of O'Reilly's lengthier or more expensive books, but is an extremely useful one. Knudsen has admirably covered the salient points of the Java 2D API and provided sufficient examples to get one started. Writing a complex graphics program means understanding the fundamentals of what needs to be done and building capabilities into it as it gets more sophisticated. This book provides you with the basics necessary to include graphics display and manipulation in your Java applications." -- E. V. Bell, II, November 1999

"This book is the best of the 2D books out there. I tried to do 2D without this book and did a lot of struggling. The book made things seem pretty simple."
