Book Review: Learning Java by Patrick Niemeyer and Daniel Leuck: Publisher- O'Reilly: ISBN- 13: 978-1-4493-2306-6
Learning Java (Fourth Edition) is book for Java practitioner as reference book. This covers lot of topics.
This is an excellent book for someone who knows basics of programming. This book is not beginners. This book lacks examples and exercises which may disappoint few people.
Book has 24 chapters covering almost all of basic Java. The chapter one talks about historical aspects. Second chapter is brief introduction of java but it assumes that reader is aware of programming, OOP, threading etc which is difficult for any beginner.
Disclaimer: I did not get paid to review this book, and I do not stand to gain anything if you buy the book. I have no relationship with the publisher or the author. I got electronic format of book from publisher for review.
There are several books on similar topic. Effective Java, Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals, Core Java, Volume II--Advanced Features, Head First Java, etc.
