Better Name - Java Manual Pages, January 28, 2002
Reviewer: Gokul Poduval from Singapore

Ok, so I knew C++ before I started to read this book. Maybe thats why I found it pretty easy to understand.

But from the persepective of the beginner, I think this book might rush him into things a bit. Though the initial few pages are a bit helpful in understanding the basics, later chapters read more like manual pages. They are only helpful because they are a bit more explanative than Java Documentation, and they feature example code.

I would recommend this books to people who have grasped the basics of Object Oriented Programming (OOP). It is also good for experts for a quick review of many helpful Java classes.

Novies of programming should stay away from it for a while, until they have some experience in OOP.
