A book for realy lerning Java

I bougt this book 2 months ago, as the fourth book about java. My task is to program a project for data aquisition, and i never programmed java before. The only way to learn a programing language is using it and the best way to use it first are examples.And this Cookbook is a very big collection of thousand very well documented, very useful examples ! Very good.The other java books i am using is "Hooked on Java (very old)", "Java Examples in a Nutshell (German edition)", similar to the Cookbook but not so good, its more scratching on the surface and a German book: "Jetzt lern ich Java" very good for the first steps. I hope that in the next time a German translation of the Java Cookbook will be available.

Excellent representation

I bought a couple of java books but none of them explained ,java in simple terms.Kudos to the good work done by authors.
I have two complaints with this book.
1. The binding is so poor and had to return the first copy and the second one was no better.Let Mc-Graw hill get noticed of this problem. 2.The authors could have included excercises at the end of each chapter so as put the grasping in to practice.hope they would include in their next revision. Other than this nothing else stops me to give five stars!
