This is the first computing book that I have found readable in an online format and it's downloadable in full! It would have cost about £50 in hardback(but worth it).
It is a quite a while since I have done any coding and though I have experience of a few languages, I am completely new to java. I had downloaded JBuilder from Borland and after playing about a bit, had got the impression that java was quite difficult to get started on. I then found David's book online and now realise that java is straightforward with similar syntax to C and Pascal. The book manages to explain all concepts without assuming any prior knowledge on the reader's part but without being patronising. Clear code examples are given to illustrate all the concepts and applets are used to bring the examples to life in the very page where you are reading the text. I shall put the JBuilder GUI aside for a while and go back to working from my old friend, the command line.
