A superb introduction to Java, very comprehensive. Always good to get an alternative perspective so use this book alongside the Java Tutorials on the Oracle site and you'll have the perfect combination. I'm an 'older' guy, so I found the font size quite uncomfortable on the eyes. Therefore, I use the PDF version of the book as well. Oh, the joys of middle age!

Its a large book with over 1100 pages and I've only covered the first 150 pages so far, but found it well written with lots of examples each of which has explanatory comments. Obviously a lot more to cover, but the book seems very comprehensive and should be a good reference book when I'm finished

A perfect first read 17 July 2012
By A. Gift For You - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are looking to get into programming with Java, switching from another language, or an experienced programmer, this book offers something for everybody. It is easy to read, easy to follow, and each page brings something useful to the table. The author did a great job at approaching a hard to write about topic that is a computer language. There is no way around it, this is a great read, and a good book to start or strengthen your foundation with the animal known as Java. This is #1 in my top 10 books to learn a language from, so pick it up and give it a try!

Excellent Resource in the electronic format 2 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been programming for many years now, but this was my first foray into Java programming. I just recently purchased my first tablet and purchased this first programming book in an electronic format (PDF). I downloaded an installed the JDK and JRE and followed the instructions provided. The instructions in the book were superior to those found online.

I than proceeded to write my first program and applet in 60 minutes. I've found the discussion on classes to be informative without weighing me down too much into the details, but providing enough information to jump start my training. I had tried other instruction books on the topic and found the discussions to be distracting. I'm 52 pages into the 1100+ page book and found that I really connected with this resource.

Good reference book! 18 Mar. 2013
By A. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book to use as a reference. It helped refresh me on topics in java and put it in a direct and simple form that I could understand. I didn't expect this book to be that big but was glad to know I got my money's worth and then some. If you need a book as a reference for java or something to explain java concepts where you can get it then this would be a great start. No it doesn't explain everything in super detail but if you need a good general understanding of the language then try this book out.

Well-Organized and Helpful 7 Oct. 2013
By Mr. Peter J. Celiberti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In the past, I've read many books on programming that are designed as a tutorial. They start simple enough, but then suddenly begin using terms that have not previously been mentioned. In other words, the books lose track of what has previously been covered. Not so with Horton's Beginning Java. I'm about 60% through the book, but every chapter builds on the previous one and only assumes you are familiar with what's already been covered in previous chapters. Anything that was not covered is explained. This allows you to progress without having to constantly research terms you don't understand. If you want to learn Java, you can safely use this book, knowing that it's all you need.

Great Programming Book 5 Mar. 2013
By Brandon Kelliher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This gives the semi-oriented user a great advantage in learning a new programming language. The examples are relevant and the exercises at the end of each chapter make you think about how to construct a fresh program using recently learned techniques.
