Novice programers will learn how to write Java programs, how to run them as free-standing programs, and how to invoke a Java program from a Web browser with this text on essentials of Java. Basic programming concepts are introduced early, followed by event-driven programming and an introduction to object-oriented design. Exercises and self-tests are included. This third edition uses UML throughout, and offers an introduction to Swing and other advanced features. The authors teach at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. Annotation c.

As a Java instructor, I respect the author's attempt to create a Java Textbook; this is not a simple task. However, I must say that this particular text is NOT a good choice for use in an Introductory Java course. I found this book a very difficult read, as some other reviewers have also commented - statements are tedious and at times you get the impression that the authors real intent is to convey how eloquent he can formulate his statements rather than convey a clear understanding of the technical principles being described. I find myself constantly wishing he'd "get to the point".
Java is all about Objects, yet OOP is only presented later in the text, and then as an after thought. I've seen this in other books too, where you get the impression the author is not comfortable with OOP and prefers to provide an explanation of classic procedural programming techniques, rather than embrassing and exploiting the benefits of OOP as provided with a langauge like Java. The student may come away with a basic understanding of Java syntax, but will not adequetly appreciate or understand the fundamental reasons we're using Java instead of COBOL, PASCAL, or BASIC - it isn't just becuase it's a cool language.
The focus on Applets may be useful for grabing the initial interest of the student and learning "fun", but by ignoring the more important role of java applications is doing students a disservice. Applets today are taking a less significant role in web application developement with the use of .NET and JSP.
There are many better choices: the Dietel books, Core Java, BlueJ.org, etc.

From my own experience I found trying to learn from this book an extremely difficult task especially being new to programming in general. I have spent more time flipping through other books trying to make sense of what these authors have written. If you are a novice to programming I suggest something with easier reading and better explanation of the topics such as Sams, Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days as suggested by the last review.
