    More Than Just a Reference

    I am just learning Java and this is the best book I have seen yet. The book is more than just a reference. The beginning chapters explain the Java language in detail and give source code examples for several Java programs. In addition, this book covers Java Applets for use on web pages along with parameter passing and interaction with the web browser. Using this book I was able to create mouse-driven Java Applets for web pages literally overnight. I can't say enough good things about this book. It is very well organized, and it answered all my questions.
