I have given this book 5 stars.

The book is very well organized.
I cannot recall now how many times I have referred to this book to refresh my memory on syntax.

I would highly recommend this book to any Java software engineer.

It is a valuable source of knowledge.

The Java 7 pocket Guide is a handy book to have at your workstation 17 Aug. 2013
By BRIAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Java 7 pocket Guide is a handy book to have at your workstation. As a software engineering student that is bouncing back and forth between multiple languages this book has become an invaluable tool. The guide is full of useful information without the padding that a 'teach yourself' book would have.

I can't count how many times I've had to pull out this handy notebook and found just what I was looking for. This is honestly a better go to than Java's own documentation.

Brief with good coverage; great on Kindle 24 Mar. 2014
By Amazon Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Covers in 150 pages what "big name" books cover in 1000 pages.
The Kindle version is great, it even includes extensive color highlighting for easier reading.

If you have not written code in any language in your life then this book may be a bit dense.
If you have exposure to coding in a language with a C-like syntax, and even more if you have read a bit about Java here and there (you don't need to be able to write "hello world" from scratch) then reading this book before other books is the best investment of your time.

The book does cover the core parts (language, using the basic tools, using collections, doing I/O) but does not cover all libraries. The parts that are covered are covered reasonably comprehensively but it does not waste your time with anecdotes, contrived jokes or subjective rants that make most other books 5 times longer for the same amount of information.

I read it on mobile phone (with a 720x720 LCD) and it is great. All the code is real, readable text that can be highlighted, zoomed, etc., not like many other Kindle books where key information is included only in low-resolution images that is hard to read and cannot be manipulated as expected.

Love the tiger and the size 29 Mar. 2014
By Elaine C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
useful as a desk top quick reference ... will keep it handy when can't recall some Java 7 nuance ...
Excellent Quick Reference 30 April 2014
By ScienceGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers all the important topics in a logical order. Java is a deep language based on some complex concepts, and it's difficult to condense a language like this into a small reference, but I think these authors did just that.
