  • 5 starseasy read, fun examples

    I enjoyed tinkering around with the code examples in the book. Lots of neat ideas and the book filled in the gaps where I was curious about how some things work.

  • 4 starsA good book

    Mr. Schildt is a great writer and a first class thinker. This book is up to his usual standard. But I have some quibbles:

    1. He uses AWT in a few spots. Does anyone use AWT anymore? Swing would have been more beneficial.

    2. The code is not refactored. I would image Mr. Schildt had to do this because of the limits on book size but the impact of the book would have been much higher if had applied ExtractMethod a few times.

    All in all, another excellent book from Mr. Schildt.

  • 5 starsWell done herbert!!

    I have to admit! The first time I saw this book on amazon.com, I imagined a java book with same old stuff. The used price of the book was relatively high as well. My passion for java made me go for this book, and boy I am so glad that I did. The fact is there is a difference between knowing java and being able to use java to write some cool applications. The latter is the mission of this book. Whether you are interested in Java-AI or just want to write your own Internet Explorer, this book shows you how. So, what are you waiting for! Buy it, enjoy it, and when you are don e with every bit of it, pass it on to others.
