By that I mean that I often found myself looking things up elsewhere, where I could find a more helpful explanation. In defense of the author, as a comprehensive text the book would probably have become too large if it were any less terse. I wouldn't recommend the book as your first book if you're trying to learn Java on your own, but it was a good text. I suspect it will also be a good reference as I move ahead to my third Java class and need to look up syntax or usage.
I have bought all of the previous editions of this title. One of the more important portions of previous editions was the API reference. I bought this edition to have a single volume, hardcopy reference for Java and the core APIs.
I was surprised at the much smaller size of the Sixth Edition compared to earlier editions and read in the preface that the omission of the API reference materials was intentional. My work environment is quite different that of the intended audience since I do not have an easy way to display my code in development and the core API Javadoc documentation from the Oracle Java web site at the same time.
I'll keep this edition because it includes coverage of the changes to Java in versions Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Not bad, I guess. Seems to cover everything, but it's a little tough picking up on some of the concepts - mostly have to read it twice.
Probably the most readable author in this area that I've read is Eric Roberts, but his Java book was too pricey for me. I picked up this and another for considerably less. They probably all tell you how the program works correctly, just that some people are better able than others to get through our thick heads. This really is a proper Nutshell book.
There's absolutely no filler, just all the core elements of Java up to java8 explained clearly and succinctly.
Great for anyone coming to Java from another language or for a Java programmer that needs to get caught up on what Java is all about today. I love this book. Not only does it go in depth on the the most basic parts of code, but it tells you all about how the code is read during compilation and runtime.
This book has given me a further understanding on how the language works as a whole. I definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to learn Java. Bought this for Java class, have an A in the class, haven't even opened it. Top notch. One person found this helpful. Clear succinct. I think that the tighter focus is a good thing and the core APIs are now well documented on the Oracle website to make a detailed printed version unnecessary.
There is also arguably material included in this book that probably shouldn't be for something focused on the core Java language. At the end of the day however it is the authors' choice of what is to be considered core that makes the final cut. Authorship has also changed over the editions. The book starts off with a focused look at the language elements of Java. Part I is called Introducing Java and it would serve as a memory jog for anyone returning to Java or moving from another language.
It is not suitable for a complete beginner. Chapter 1 is a brief look a the history and position of Java in the current state of things. The book really gets started at Chapter 2, some 17 pages in.
This details, in a fairly dry way, the basics of the language, lexical structure, data types, expressions, methods, classes, arrays, reference types and so on. Chapter 3 is a rapid introduction to object-oriented programming.
This is enough to get you started and there is a second chapter on object oriented design later. Chapter 4 deals with the type system, including type inference introduced in Java 8.
It covers the ideas of interfaces and generics before moving on to enums, nested types and lambda expressions. Chapter 5 goes back to object-oriented techniques and design. This is not a "gang of four" patterns-based explanation of design, more a general consideration of issues such as composition v inheritance, interfaces v abstract classes and so on. The final chapter in this introduction is about memory and concurrency - the basics of memory management, the HotSpot heap and working with threads.
Part II is about using Java and best practices. Chapter 7 explains naming and documentation conventions. Chapter 8 is about Java Collections - including using lambda expressions. Chapter 9 covers basic data formats - text, numbers, date and time.
It doesn't attempt to explain everything in the simplest possible terms. It also deals with topics from the point of view of Java 8, but there are occasional notes on backwards compatibility. If you are a Java expert or an expert on a specific area of Java then you will find that this book doesn't go far enough - it is by no means a Java and Java ecosystem encyclopedia.
It is a very good compromise if you want something reasonably advanced squeezed into a nutshell.
