I bought this book, because although I am proficient in writing code in Algol, Fortran and PL1, my knowledge of more modern programming languages is rather sketchy. I found the sucture of Java coding to be a bit over complex compared with the older languages, but I can see the reasons for this. I have read about a fifth of the book and found that Doug has a witty turn of phrase and he explains the details very well.
The book is well worth persevering with, which I wiil do as the opportunities present themselves.

I had before this one 4 really big Java books, but none of them included everything I needed. So I bought Java All-n-One and now I really have everything in one place. It's also very well written, and with no errors when in comes to Java code. Or at least i still haven't found one.

A good introduction to most of the topics in Java. This book is a recommended read, if you have already gone through the basics and looking to get into some advanced topics.

The book has 9 sections. I completely skipped the first 3 sections as they were just the basics. Read through section 4 generally and from section 5 onwards I read the book trying to understand the concepts.

Regular expressions and Recursive programming have been explained well in section 5.
Ditto for the chapters on Servlets and JSPs in section 6.

The back cover states something about mobile app building, but nothing is there in the book. Also the usual dummies part of 10s series is missing.

I'am not sure why author has mentioned his personal website as there is nothing useful in it.

I've read a few Java intro books over the years to keep my knowledge fresh and this is one of the best. Easy to follow with working examples and an introduction to web programming, it won't make you an expert but it covers a broad range of topics well and gives an introduction to design patterns too. The only downside is that the cover mentions mobile but it is not covered. I'd recommend this as a book for anyone new to Java wanting to pick it up quickly and easily.

Brought this book to help me understand and program in Java. As a beginner I required some help to start programming in Java so I started to watch tutorials on you tube. However, I brought this book as I feel its just easier to open up a page in the book to read particular parts in detail over and over rather than re watching a video on you tube which with having slow internet speeds is a pain. This book is good at explaining topic's, keywords, etc, using a number of diagrams which help a lot! I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to start programming in Java.

This book is quite long and complex and so far I have only had time to scan the first few chapters.
I chose my rating because I have been impressed with what I have read.
I like the way Doug Lowe writes, because it is clear and amusing.
I have written code in Algol, Fortran and PL1 and I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in writing computer code.

From what I have seen of this book so far, it is easy to follow and explains the basics of the language thoroughly but also gets much deeper into some of the more advanced features. Great book.

Not bad at all. The only problem is that it becomes incredibly confusing about half way through and stops explaining stuff in simple terms. The first half is great and really simple to understand but the author struggled to make complex topics like database integration simple to understand.

The writer asked the users to have a basic idea about programming but the book is actually so easy to use that even beginners will be very easily learning from the book.

The advanced users though will find the book boring, I suppose.
