The best introduction to Java you can buy.
on 18 February 2007
If you want to start learning Java you can't go wrong with this book. It is a great introduction to the language in easy to read English as opposed to the unfriendly tecnospeak of other "beginners" books. I am a fan on Mike McGrath's style for three reasons:
1 He makes no assumptions about the readers prior knowledge,
2 His style is very readable; you can pick up the book, read a page and put it down again if you want,
3 He starts with simple ideas and builds on them to explain more complex ideas.
The only downside is this book is not in colour unlike the excellent Linux in Easy Steps, but this in no way detracts from an excellent book.
Buy this book and learn Java!
