Yakov Fain is able to explain Java concepts extremely well. I highly recommend this book in conjunction with the videos (updated versions available on YouTube).

3.0 out of 5 stars It's far from perfect. June 18 2011
Well I'm done the first lesson, and half way through the second. It's clear to me that the author is an idiot. If you can get past that it doesn't seem to be that bad of a book. I will edit the review as I learn more. It's worth noting that the book does NOT include a DVD in the traditional sense, it is a data DVD with flash based video lessons, that disappointed me. The book was clearly not edited by anyone who cared too much as there are several references to the first video tutorial which isn't included in the DVD, there is infact a note that there is no first lesson (on the DVD). (Don't let that stop anyone from buying the book, you don't need a video to complete the first lesson). Oh, even though the DVD isn't actually a video DVD they didn't even bother to include the software, the author might get 1.9MB/s speeds but a lot of us don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you know other language or want overview.... March 21 2011
By Perry Kaye - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book and it includes videos. Yes, you get a full set of videos so you can see what is taught in each chapter. Many java books are too verbose, you get 10 pages instead of the one answer you need. Not this book, it is simply perfect.

This book is excellent if you know another language and want to get quickly running in java. But its also for newbies who wish to just start programming. Each chapter is direct, no wasted words. And if you don't understanding something, you can watch the video.

You will not be a java pro when you finish the book but you will be able to write useful programs. And the book never intends to make you a pro. It is EXCELLENT for what it does and I highly recommend it as a first book for anyone wishing to learn java.

It uses the Free Editor Eclipse which is a plus. And you get to see the author write and run code in the editor you'll be using. The book teaches Java 6 so it is current as I write this. As a beginning java book it is worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars good as digest. Feb. 23 2011
By Dmitry P - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For those who need guidance - book is perfect. Perfect for programmers coming from other platforms, was perfect for me after learning JSE and I wish this book would have came out earlier when I needed it the most.

Book helped me to find out how whole Java Technology is working and how everything interacts and organized.
Will it tech you how to program? Not really, but It will orient you in the right direction, if you new to Java EE platform.

Price and thickness speaks for itself, and how author mentioned - "there are no miracles". If you want to learn how to program get Liang or some other thick 1300 pages book with LOTS of exercises and spend tremendous amount of time programming, then get another 1300 pages "Thinking in Java" Bruce Eckel, then "Effective Java" or patters by Head First and more. At least that is my agenda. Thin 24 hour trainers won't help you become programmer, but I think book is good what it was written for. Its not a "Java core book", its a 24 hour trainer through almost all Java technology to help you to get started in Java EE.

why 4 stars,- I would like to see not only an examples of how to use certain technologies but 2-3 exercises as well for practice. This way book would be priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Java Programming 24-Hour Trainer (Wrox Programmer to Programmer) March 31 2011
By Michael C. Sutton - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been in the IT Profession for 31 years. I recently changed jobs, switching from 11 years in the C++/C# closed-source world and into the Java/J2EE open source world. I needed a fast spin-up to become productive in my new job and this book was the best primer I have ever read/used (and I've read hundreds of books over the years). I very much hope the author will write a follow-on, more advanced version using the same techniques (text, examples, and video-DVD). Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for programmers who want to switch to Java April 22 2011
By Yuriy Lopotun - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this book is an excellent thing for programmers like me, who want to switch their specialization to Java.

One of the advantages of this book is that it gives a big picture of the Java SE and EE platforms. Dozens of technologies' acronyms, which I was afraid of in the past (like JSF, JMS, JNDI etc.) are now familiar to me. Moreover, I understand where and when these technologies are applicable.

Of course, I can't be considered a Java EE guru after reading this book. But now, when I know the possibilities of the Java platform, I can continue with online tutorials and other books, dedicated to concrete Java EE technologies I'm going to work with on a particular project.

Thank you, Yakov!
