This book has the best examples and step by step programming methodolgy I have ever read. People that know me know I would rather have someone else code for me, but this book really helped me understand the Coffee Language. In fact, I wouldn't be wasting my time writing a review if I didn't feel others would benefit.

As a student, while I am struggling to understand Java for two semesters, nobody points to me about this book. Honestly I don't have enough money to buy books as many as I want. The required textbook for the class is too hard to understand and I think the textbook for my Java class was written for not to be understood. I started to heat it. Frankly, it makes my life hopeless, miserable. I thought I would never be able to understand Java. Well I started to read different Java books while standing in the B&N bookstore on 5 Ave and 17 Street. Finally, came to see this book. I bought it. I read it¿ I understand it¿ I laugh¿ is Java so logical¿ clear¿understandable¿I end up with an A. Thanks to Mr. O'Neil. In future, if I will success in computer world, it is because of Joseph O'Neil's 'Teach Yourself Java'. This is first programming language I have learned. I think the ways the examples and exercises are described in the book are supportive. So my request to anyone who have problem to understand Java like me or just want to learn it, please, please and please try this book. It helps. It helped me and I think it will help you too.
