This doesn't spend much time on my bookshelf because I keep paging through it. I have to disagree with the review by 'JB.' Because Java and C++ (and Perl for that matter, for which there is also an 'Effective' title) are very different languages, it's a bit unreasonable to expect these books to be identical in presentation. That there is less actual code in the Java title illustrates Java's strength in abstraction rather than a shortcoming in book content. Joshua's book is very effective in communicating best practices, just as the C++ and Perl titles do (all from the same publisher). This book lives up to its title.

Great book. I found it to be very useful. A must read for any mature Java developer. I liked the fact that the author often uses actual Java language classes to illustrate his examples. This gave me better appreciation and understanding of the internals of the core Java classes.

Nothing close to 'Effective C++' ( as title might suggest to those familiar). This doesn't imply, that the author doesn't know the subject: but the book isn't good. Wordy. Little code. Not worth a place on your shelf. Hope there won't be 'More effective Java'.
