Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The biggest problem with this book is how it breaks down and introduces the practice code. I would expect to start with the main focus of a program and then build the methods/classes to serve that focus. The book consistently starts the reader out with a portion of code that is lower on the hierarchy (in a separate class), leaving the reader without any context. Imagine learning how cars work by getting lectures on tires and axles and exhaust before you learn about the engine. You may pick up little details, but the context is lost.
I would recommend this book to others looking for a concise introduction to java.
