Overview

Java is a new object-oriented programming language that was developed by
Sun Microsystems for programming the Internet and intelligent appliances. In a very short time it has become one of the most widely used programming languages for education as well as commercial applications.Design patterns, which have moved object-oriented programming to a new level, provide programmers with a language to communicate with others about their designs. As a result, programs become more readable, more reusable, and more easily extensible.In this book, Matthias Felleisen and Daniel Friedman use a small subset of Java to introduce pattern-directed program design. With their usual clarity and flair, they gently guide readers through the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and pattern-based design. Readers new to programming, as well as those with some background, will enjoy their learning experience as they work their way through Felleisen and Friedman's dialogue.

Yech, this book is a mess. If you enjoy the 'I'm too cool to care if you understand it.' style of instruction this is you're meat. It's like buying a book on spelling and the only thing it has to say is 'Use the dictionary'. Just some guys who couldn't get anyone to buy Lisp trying to get in on the act.
