Description: Everything you could ever want in an introductory Java book! Insight, clarity, humor, to-the-point examples, and a whole lot more!
-- From the basics of object development to design patterns and other advanced topics.
-- By the author of the best-selling Thinking in C++ -- winner of the 1995 Jolt Cola Award!
-- On-line version has already received tens of thousands of hits -- huge built-in demand!

The legendary author Bruce Eckel brings Java to life with this extraordinarily insightful, opinionated and downright funny introduction. Thinking in Java introduces all of the language's fundamentals, one step at a time, using to-the-point code examples. More than virtually any other book, Thinking in Java helps you understand not just what to do -- but why. Eckel introduces all the basics of objects as Java uses them; then walks carefully through the fundamental concepts underlying all Java programming -- including program flow, initialization and cleanup, hiding implementations, reusing classes and polymorphism. Using extensive, to-the-point examples, he introduces error handling, exceptions, Java I/O, run-time type identification, and passing and returning objects. He covers the Java AWT, multithreading, network programming with Java -- even design patterns. The best way to understand the real value of this book is to hear what readers of the online version have been saying about it: "much better than any other Java book I've seen, by an order of magnitude..". "mature, consistent, intellectually honest, well-written and precise..". "a thoughtful, penetrating analytical tutorial which doesn't kowtow to the manufacturers..". "Thank you again for your awesome book. I was reallyfloundering, but your book has brought me up to speed as quickly as I could read it!"
