I found this book to be extremely well written for people like myself that have never tried programming before. Each chapter is really easy to follow and you will have all the basics down in no time. The only thing that would have made this book a little nicer was a glossary of Java terms, but I didn't dock a star because if you can't find it on Google then you probably already failed at life.
