Not everyone's cup of tea.,
This review is from: Head First Java (Paperback)
Hi, I bought this book a month ago. I must say although the book is well written, I personally find it too much flowery/fussy (If you get what I mean)...instead of just focusing on the core of the subject (Java), they put in too much analogy (a bit silly sometimes) and pictures that it get's somebody more confused. I felt very stupid using the book, sometimes you don't know if the words they are using are analogy or actually a part of the java commands/keywords. I prefer a more technical book with a proper explanation. I actually find the online tutorials of Sun more informative, and less fussy. Just my two cents/pence.
