Format: Paperback
I bought this book a long time back while holidaying in Sri Lanka thinking that it might have 'a few useful recipes'. And after a few months when I actually decided to sit down and do some java coding to prepare for the Sun's developer certification exam I realized the true value of this book. This book may not turn you into a "Java almighty". But it takes you as close as you can get to that. Don't get me wrong. If you know nothing about java this book is not going to be a great introduction to the language. But if you know the basics then this can do to you - in programming terms - what that fairy did to Cinderella. Trust me I have seen an awful lot of Java books. I very rarely get so excited about a book on programming. Just buy it.

Format: Paperback
I find this a good "cook book" -the sort you need in a rush, to remind you the details. Although some items were rather too-commonly used to include in a reference (eg: "Q:You need to sleep for a while; A: use Thread.sleep()"), in general the tips were very useful.
I would recommend this for the novices and the experienced alike, to help free your mind with the details of Java coding intricacies, and let you worry about more important design /testing aspects. Personally I found this very useful in graphics and internationalization, the things that I do not use everyday work.

Of all the java books on my bookshelf I have two Java books that deal with trying to teach or explain Java by using examples: "Java Examples" and "Java CookBook" both by O'Reilly. The Java Cookbook is so much the better book it's almost embarassing that O'Reilly are responsible for both. This book is an essential part of a Java developers knowledgebase and I would urge anyone learning Java to buy it. The only reason I don't recomend this book to experienced developers is that I'm pretty sure that you already have it!

Format: Paperback
Unlike other Java reference books this is much more than a book filled with abstract notions and useless API specs that you can get off the web. Instead, real code samples are organized in meaningful chapters and I've found it an ideal and natural way to get to grips with the methods offered by the various Java classes and where they fit in to the Java landscape.
If you are new to Java but have previous programming experience dont even think twice about buying this book. I find myself rushing for my IDE to try new ideas out whenever I read a new chapter.
I simply love this book with its logical layout and will keep it by my side as long as I program Java.

Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure whether to get this book at first, considering myself to be an experienced Java developer. However, after opening the book for the first time I immediately found myself using the examples from within.
This is a great book suitable for all levels of Java developer. It describes the basics of Java in a non beginner friendly way and introduces some of the advanced aspects of Java development in a way that stimulates creative thought.
You won't be disappointed if you buy this book.

This book provided me with a lot of useful information and allowed me to enter areas of programming that lacked documented examples. Worth the money.

I actually bought a bunch of these for an 'Introduction to Java' course having owned a much older one myself. This a a great resource, from getting started to anwering the 'how do I achive this task' question. Useful for beginners and more experienced users alike - I still refer to it on occasions for things I haven't tackled before and also, to illustrate the point, as a reference for which class to use for string vs. object/binary I/O.
