It is a wonderful book
This is a great book for anyone interested in java
This book is not about java or creating java programs. It is about using some bass akward program called JCreator which costs $89.00 and can only be installed on one machine and heaven help you if that machine breaks and you want to install it on another machine. Don't be fooled by the JCreator LE version which is free, but worthless.
After playing my favorite game, minecraft, I was encouraged to learn Java, so I picked up this book and now i'm writting programs
I've been trying to learn programming for a while, and this book really helped. It gives you everything you need in a nice CD along with explaining how to install and use it. The chapters are well-organized and very in-depth while not being too complicated. Overall I highly recommend it if you wish to learn Java.
