    "I am a computer professional but somehow I felt books from O'Reilly are not for those who would like to start a new technology. Their writings are not simple for starters to understand and also they lack more examples which is definitely needed for beginners."

    "Like all the other tech books in this series, this thing is great. Has a bunch of really great stuff that is useful for beginners, intermediates, and possibly experts alike.

    "This has been a handy reference for me since the day I picked it up. I kept it on my desk the entire time I was learning Java, and had to crack it open frequently. The information is starting to get a little dated, but it's still a very useful book I would recommend for everyone who's interested in coding."
