Worth buying, even if you have the 1st edition of the book, 9 July 2009
The 1st edition of this brilliant, must have book, for any serious Java developer had served me well for many years. So, I was eager to see what was new in the 2nd edition and there's more than enough to warrant its purchase.
The 2nd edition brings into focus best practices around the new features introduced in Java 5, namely generics, new concurrency classes, enums and annotations.
Think you know about all the various ways to create a singleton? - every thought of using an enum with a single enumerated instance? - read the book, it'll be worth it, just for that.
