I have just finished reading this book, basically skimming the last 7 chapters (or days I should say). I gave quite a break in between, but when I went back to Day 14, I realized this is not going anywhere. I have worked on three programs on Animation and none worked. The whole code is given without any explanation. As one previous reviewer put it, that kind of code is already given when you run Visual J++. If there is no explanation, why need this book? I am totally puzzled. The Q&A at the end of each day is a big joke. I am really afraid of the programmers who would study this book and think that they are competent with J++ right away. I am immediately in search of another programming book. If anyone who would like my copy, please send me an email, and I will mail it to you if you send me the postage. IMHO, waste of time. Grap another book, please, if you are serious.
