I picked up this book to cover multilingual charset issues, which are missing in all the standard Java resources but neatly listed in this title's contents/index. Great, I thought, something for those of us who speak English but sell software to the other 93% of the world.
After I had laid my [money] down at the bookstore, I found out the sordid truth- the author is a newbie in regards to the multilingual issues but didn't let it stop him from writing down some shockers. To be nice, he probably got a little enthusiastic about Java's genuinely wide multilingual capabilities and tried to promote it, but some parts of this book are anti-education, end of story...

This book does a fair job of covering the topic. I found it semi-useful. I would not recommend it however. Other books give you more value for the money. I would recommend the Java Tutorial series or; Just Java 2 by Peter Van der Linden, those are great learning books. They give you real value for your money. They do a great job of helping you learn what you need to, to get your programming assignments done at work. The Sun Java website has also been very helpful to me. There, you can find anything you need to without wasting 50 bucks for a book that does not help you that much.

This book covers Java I/O in a relatively competent fashion.
However, the author, Mr. Harold, chose to use his very popular website on the day of terror--September 11, 2001--to condemn America for her foreign policy and to label the many analysts calling for reprisals "white war mongers". The implication--inescapable to me--was that we had it coming. In the several days following, he continued in the vein, never even bothering with a single sentence condemning the terrorists.
This bothered me a great deal. If it bothers you, I suggest you look at other books covering Java IO (Core Java 2 or Sun's Java Library books that cover IO come to mind).

Great tutorial-like introduction to the Java I/O classes. Not a reference but very useful. A must buy if you want to boost your coding productivity. Plus it has the only discussion of Java-based serial and parallel port I/O that I've seen. One or two small rough spots but well worth the $'s.

The book is good, complete and shows you the details of I/O for Java (you should be at least an intermediate programmer); however, there are some errata that you must check in the web page of O'Reilly.
You can download the code of examples from the web page, and this code is corrected (it compiles and run), but some examples in the book are not: If you write down the code directly from the book you'll realize the problems.
I bought it in in mid 2001, but the corrections were not yet included in the edition I got, so supose you'll have to include them. Nevertheless, after doing it, you'll have a good book to study and use the I/O capabilities of Java.

First of all, this is not a reference, it explains the organization behind the I/O Library. If you are looking for a reference book to locate answers in under a minute this ISN'T the book for you, instead get 'Java in a Nutshell'. Second of all, this book helps you to learn the I/O classes by constructing a program that you modify throughout the book. If that will annoy you, don't get this book. Overall, I think this is a great book! It was well worth the investment. I had previously encountered I/O documentation in more broadly scoped Java books such as, Beginning Java, in other words not much detail. This book, however, blew me away with its detail, but it is presented in a very down to earth manner. In other words, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand what's going on. This book will take you from the top of the I/O class hierarchy and move you down into the specialized sub-classes. All the while explaining to you what each of the classes does and like I said before, a lot of supporting details. Best of all, this book helps you understand I/O by showing you how Sun logically organized the I/O Library. By the time you've finished the book it's much easier to understand how all of the classes come together to offer powerful I/O support. Before I read this book when I looked at the inheritance tree for the I/O Library my reponse was like "you've got to be kidding me! I'll never be able to get all of this down!". But after finishing this book I am in no way intimidated or confused by the I/O classes. Good luck!
