5.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book
David Flanagan did a good job keeping it simple. This book is very good for begginers, it lays down the major concepts needed to Java programming.

It is not very thorough and it will not make you an expert, but is definitely a good book to have beside you when developing an application in Java, which is the purpose of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but dates quickly
A great bible for reference purposes but it dates very quickly and online references are far better

This review is from: Java in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
I haven't bought this book, but surely there's a mistake in the title?! How can you describe a 1264-page book as '...in a nutshell'?
