Praise for other Head First books

“Another nice thing about Head First Java, 2nd Edition is that it whets the appetite for more. With later coverage of more advanced topics such as Swing and RMI, you just can’t wait to dive into those APIs and code that flawless, 100000-line program on java.net that will bring you fame and venture-capital fortune. There’s also a great deal of material, and even some best practices, on networking and threads—my own weak spot. In this case, I couldn’t help but crack up a little when the authors use a 1950s telephone operator—yeah, you got it, that lady with a beehive hairdo that manually hooks in patch lines—as an analogy for TCP/IP ports...you really should go to the bookstore and thumb through Head First Java, 2nd Edition. Even if you already know Java, you may pick up a thing or two. And if not, just thumbing through the pages is a great deal of fun.”

“Of course it’s not the range of material that makes Head First Java stand out, it’s the style and approach. This book is about as far removed from a computer science textbook or technical manual as you can get. The use of cartoons, quizzes, fridge magnets (yep, fridge magnets...). And, in place of the usual kind of reader exercises, you are asked to pretend to be the compiler and compile the code, or perhaps to piece some code together by filling in the blanks or...you get the picture. The first edition of this book was one of our recommended titles for those new to Java and objects. This new edition doesn’t disappoint and rightfully steps into the shoes of its predecessor. If you are one of those people who falls asleep with a traditional computer book then this one is likely to keep you awake and learning.”

Head First Web Design is your ticket to mastering all of these complex topics, and understanding what’s really going on in the world of web design...If you have not been baptized by fire in using something as involved as Dreamweaver, then this book will be a great way to learn good web design.”
