    Description
    This is a book that is tailored for Java novices. Ideal for those who are interested in learning Java but have been put off by the complexities of learning the language, Head First Java explores a new way of teaching the same. Head First Java is aimed at people who are complete novices when it comes to programming with the language, and the book makes the learning experience fun - one that�s filled with innovative and novel measures. If you�re not a fan of wracking your brain with dull theoretical concepts that put you to sleep, Head First Java can be a welcome addition to your shelf. The book starts from the fundamentals and progresses to extremely advanced levels, employing an easy-to-learn approach throughout. From distributed programming with RMI and network sockets, object oriented design, and object properties and methods, to graphical user interfaces, Java archives, network connectivity and Java 5.0, the book explores every facet of the programming language with mysteries, puzzles and visuals that will keep you engaged. The unusual format is based on the theory that the brain needs stimulation to grasp complex issues. The adopted approach brings about a considerable reduction in the time required to grasp the language. About The Author Kathy Sierra is a well-known game developer and programming inspector. She has worked as a master trainer for Sun Microsystems. She�s also one of the founders of JavaRanch, the online community of Java programmers. Other books of hers that she�s co-authored with Bert Bates include Head First Design PatternsHead First EJBHead First Servlets and JSP Bert Bates has been involved in the area of software development for more than 25 years.

    Best book for Java Greenhorns.

    I am final year student of B.Tech CSE. I have programming experience in C# .Net 3.5 , C and C . Further, I kind of had feeling that I should resign from .Net and choose Java. So, after a lot R&D on Google and some other tech forums I chose Head First Java. And all I can say now is that it's simply awesome for newbies in Java. One can never find it boring. Once u have came past 1st chapter it will generate curiosity and u will keep moving on. I finished this book in mere 15-20 days and now I ...

    INTERACTIVE AND ENGAGING

    First of all FK Delivery ,
    I used to be fan of FK for its delivery but this time they took six days,
    it seems they are more on promoting IN-A-DAY service .so that 3 stars.
    About the book ,
    i would have given it a 4 stars for its interactive and engaging style of presentation.
    if you are impressed with many 5 stars from other users bear in mind you are not going to become an expert in java with this one.
    This book is intended to the Beginners ,(though helpful to experts as well).
    It feels lik...

    Want to answer every question in class and make heads turn? THEN READ THIS BOOK!

    This is an extremely good book for anybody who wants to begin their learning on Java.
    Pros:
    1. Fluid style
    2. Clever illustrations
    3. Interesting problems
    4. Unconventional coding (no programming involving printing the sum of two numbers)
    5. You'd probably learn something out of this and still be called cool.

    Cons:
    Since it is a beginner's book, there are some limitations regarding the amount of learning you would like to have. There is only one con: Less detailed chapters on Autoboxing, Swi...

    From a Procedural Programmer to Object Oriented Guy!

    In my last career job that I left about 20 years ago we were programming in DOS world using C & Assembly. Since then I spent years teaching computers to children of all ages. I had a longstanding desire to be able to bring myself up to speed in today's PC environments. My 1st book in Python was too overwhelming. I read the reviews here and thought to try this book. I can tell you that it has made OOPS funda a lot more clear for me. Went through about 150 pages of it like I was reading a novel...

    good book...bad quality

    I order this book because when I took it for first time from a friend, I just wasn't able keep it away and I definitely wanted to keep a copy of this in my collection. The book is a MUST for first time JAVA divers. But the quality of the book is bad. Seriously you can actually see the next page from the current page. The paper used to print is so thin, that I cannot even highlight with a smooth pencil, without tearing the paper. I wonder if Flipkart is listening.

    Java made in to a-walk-in-a-park for beginners

    I'm a amateur programmer. I had little programming knowledge in C. I've never passed across chapter 3 in any book. But this one is different. Without even realizing I've learned a lot within two weeks of starting to studying this.

    Initially I thought of learning the basics of some robust programming language. From my research over internet I zeroed in on Java. Then I researched further on learning Java. All the suggestions I got is to start with 'Head First Java' and then 'Head First Design...

    Perhaps the best Java for beginners

    This is perhaps the best book for beginners who want to learn Java basics. It pictorially explains the technical concepts in non-technical, which beginners will find very hard to understand otherwise. Even most of the teachers won't be able to explain the concepts better than this book can. Reading the initial pages of the book, you can find how much research has been put into developing this sort of teaching methodology. Being myself a lecturer, I do recommended this book, especially for th...

    Provides a good learning.

    Head First Java is a good book for beginners in Java (Not in Programming) mind that. But the explanation is pretty good and exercises help you to grasp the concepts nicely.

    A must read book on several counts

    I am so impressed by the book that I had recommended it to my sister, nay bought one and delivered to her. After purchasing a copy I was appalled at the quality of production. Later on second thoughts I bought a copy for myself, even after buying Java: The complete Reference by Herb Schildt my favorite author. I always like to choose portmanteau books so.
    Having bought HFJ by Sierra and Bates, I felt here are the real pedagogues. I messaged my sister( a banking professional) saying "Read thi...
