Provides instruction for novice programmers, and advanced features and techniques for professionals. The work gives examples on how to interface Java applets into HTML documents, and features reference to all the standard Java APIs.
It is really great to find a book that actually delivers what was promised on the back cover. I did not know anything about Java but wanted to get up to speed quickly. The book assumes that you do not know anything about programming or OOP and builds from there. The examples are great and very practical, not to mention that they actually work !. Having completed the book I still find myself referencing it from time to time. Money well spent...and to the authors, well done.

Just a note to let you know that the JAVA PRIMER PLUS is one of the top ten IT books in my library. In an industry where 50% of the books out there is, well, crap, yours is very well written, easy to read and thorough. Your writing style is similiar to the guys who wrote 'Essential Client Server Survival Guide', I can't quite remember the authors names. Steven Feuerstein is another author who's writing style is similiar to yours in that it is easy to read and the author knows his subject matter. A job well done and I hope you update this book by covering JDK 1.2 Thanks.
Very good book for learning Java with a C++ background.

This book explains the concepts of Java programming very well and with ample examples. For the less experienced programmer some of the concepts may be hard to grasp, such as OOP and classes if you do not have a C++ background. None the less it is a very good book which doesn't bore you after the first few pages. It is not a book where you will learn all (but which book is) but it sets the necessary grounds on which to write a decent complex application or applet. Marius Botha (Mbotha@new.co.za)
