I love this book. Although I advise setting aside 48 hours to really get a good grasp on it. Although it does spend a good deal of time on applets it does so with good logic. Most people who are only interested in spending about 24 hours on learning java most likely arent going to be developing indepth programs. If you want this book to either get a diecent grasp on java, or simply to quickly review java (which is my use of the book). I highly recommend it. However if you want to get deeper in java I recommend you buy this book first and follow it up with something such as learn java in 21 days.

I felt the author did a good job with this book and I did not see where over half of the book was spent on Applets. The book does a very good job of explaining the basics of the Java language and introducing topics such as OOP. The one real draw back is I do not feel the author does a great job with exampls and samples they are there just not abundant and explained in detail. This book is also used to teach college courses that is the first and second Java classes semester 1 and 2.

This book would have been a good introduction into the language, but applets are dead and over half this book was wasted on them. I have been developing in Microsoft tools for almost my entire career. I was hoping to get a good jump into Java with this book, but I was disappointed.
