I give this four stars because, while it does cover a whole wide range of topics extensively and explains Java concepts in a layman-friendly way, it also skims a couple of very important topics like XML, File I/O, and web development. Understandable though, as those are fairly large topics in themselves. But for everything else this book is a tremendous boost for beginners; it was for me!
