Completely unsuited to audio format.

This book is terrible to listen to. It actually reads the sample programs character by character, which takes ages and is painful to follow.
main open parenthesis string open square bracket close square bracket args close parenthesis open curly bracket new line.......
I am guessing that the good reviews are fake. They have incredibly suspicious date stamps. Amazon should clamp down on this sort of thing. Supposedly they have a lot of smart people. I'm sure someone could write an algorithm to red-flag this rubbish.

This is a great book if you're new to java. It explains things in a very easy to understand fashion. I've been blasting thru the chapters and I'm amazed how much I've learned in such a short time

very satisfied

The book is very descriptive and the examples are broken down enough for the listener to follow. I have not finished it but so far it's the best source I have. Recommended for beginners

outstandin

This is a fine book. It is useful both for programmers who are learning Java or even for non-programmers starting with their first language. The object-oriented elements of Java, general OO concepts are explained exceptionally well. I have this book from cover to cover to brush up on my rusty Java. Java, I learned, is very close to C++ (which is mostly what I have been familiar with) but designed for a different platform (the web, or other devices) and for portability

decent learning tool

If you are a beginner, this is a fantastic book for you. If you work through it, you will have a good understanding of java to build on. I know countless hours of console programming can make you want to roll your face on the keyboard, but don't try to build a house from the roof down. Get a strong foundation and build u

recommemded

This is more than a simple beginner's guide. It may beyond the scope for a first time programmer who is taking a leap into object oriented programming. For those who have done a little bit of programming and wish to push their skills forward, this is an excellent book, especially for those with more structured and logical thinking

solid book

Good book for beginners. Introduces not only JAVA syntax but also concepts. At the end it covers basic language to good extent

basic refresher

I wanted to review my Java basics, but including the basics of advanced topics such as inheritance and polymorphism, for an interview. I haven't worked with Java in 3 years. This was such a life saver

Very good content...

This book has very good content but is horrible as as audio book due to having to listen to five minute long code descriptions including curly braces and tabs.

I honestly could have gotten so much from just being able to listen to Java concepts over and over but the code description made it unbearable so I will have to go out and buy the book also even though I hate reading.

Meaty Java Book

I bought the first book in this series, so I knew what to expect. This book has a lot of detail. The author does a great job explaining the functions of Java and following up with examples. Listen with a pencil and notebook handy for the code!

Don't read the code

It was fine until the narrator started reading through each line of code...it should just refer people to the book of they need to see specific lines.

Useful book

Honestly, I've never seen any computer book this relatable. This book actually talks to you rather than just throwing technical terms at you. It takes you through the concepts with ample amount of examples and pictures. And sometimes, it kind of feels like a kids book with all the pictures and the font(comic sans, really?). Don't get me wrong it actually helps understand things way better. Definitely recommended for anyone who needs to start learning java programming.

This book was benefit for my Java project

This book was benefit for my Java project. It was a long time that I was looking for computer programmer and instructor who has developed several applications and computer programs. I've learned now enough functions and algorithms to impress my co-workers
