But the greatest plus of this book are the numerous brief programming examples that serve to elucidate salient points. There are literally hundreds of them, often just a few lines of Java code that illustrate some "popular" mistake, or some important feature of the language. Like a good coach, the author guides the reader's training by means of these exercises; he also knows exactly where the pitfalls are, and shows how to avoid them.
Two caveats. First, this book covers Java up to the Level 1 Java certification exam. If you are looking for JDBC database programming, you won't find it here. Second, the title of the book may be slightly misleading insofar as you will find JBuilder explained well, but only to the degree needed to program the examples of the book. A deeper explanation of JBuilder along with Java database programming and other advanced concepts may be found in the same author's book, "Rapid Java Application Development using JBuilder" (but read this one first).
To sum up, this book deserves its popularity as a great Java text in its own right. It will be useful to all those who are serious about learning Java programming, whether they intend to use JBuilder or not.
