    These Writers are Great

    Sybex has done it again. They've once again written a book that's not just filled whith nonsen, but actually teaches you what you want to learn. It's a maximum of information at a minimum of words. You could probably pass a Java Developers certificate after you've read this book. Thanks Cybex.

    A very helpful resource for any programmer!!!

    I bought this book in 6-98, and it has never left my side. I have lugged this book over thousands of miles; Why??? Because it provides detailed, concise answers to many advanced topics on Java. Also, it provides many, practical examples that are easy to follow. In defense of this book, the 12-2-99 review alleged that there are lots of printing errors, but I have only found few trivial ones. Furthermore, the RMI chapter is intelligent, well-organized, and straight-forward (same with the thread chapter). True, it doesn't talk about the security model's effects on RMI, but you are silly to expect a book covering these many topics to be finely detailed. If I needed additional info., which I rarely did, I went straight to the source at javasoft. I can not defend Sybex in regards to its customer service since I have never attempted to contact them. If this was not a good, resourceful book, I would not have wasted valuable luggage space and dragged its weight across many states and countries. It's a must-have for all Java programmers, and is worthy of its hard-bound cover.
