5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Java
If, like me, you have an interest in getting to grips with Java but have no prior experience of the language, and/or little or no experience of programming generally, then this book offers a great place to start. It represents basic principles in a non-technical way, making good use of analogy to help the reader understand some of the more abstract concepts.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the beginners beginner
Quite slow paced and would be vastly improved if it was more concise. Often gives you information about figures that you seen 5 pages ago. Means lots of flicking back, If it was more concise, learning would flow a lot more smoothly.

5.0 out of 5 stars More, much more than expected..., 14 Jan. 2014

Well,
I'll be very brief and straight-forward not to bother anyone with an annoying 50 pages review: GET IT.
No assumptions, no skipping steps, incredibly easy to understand, well written AND funny (you heard me!).

But more than that, its author actually gives you a personal email to use at any problem, and even better, his website allowing you to speak directly to him, LIVE that is.
So, despite of your rookie level in Java (even better if it is like mine...a big fat 0), this is your book.

Good and easy to follow for newbie learners like myself. I've always loved the for Dummies series and would recommend this and the other programming language Dummie books.
