Best Beginners Programming Book I've ReadApril 16 2005
- Published on Amazon.com
The book wastes little time getting into classes and contains a substantial introduction to GUI programming, something that, inexplicably, many other books fail to do. It even gets into threads! The appendices in the back contain descriptions of many of the classes in the standard Java packages and their member functions, which can be very useful. It should be noted that there is a newer version of this book, but this older version is not yet out of date.
