    I have three Deitel books. They are all comprehensive, full of examples and quite simply boring. They teach you what you need, but in a way reminiscent of a lifeless professor that has lost all passion. There are better books for learning and there are better books to serve as reference.

    This book is a must read for everyone who works with sfotware development. Definitely amazing!

    Nearly put me off programming, which I love! :-/ Verbose and bloated explainations, bludgeons reader with extraneous details, not focused, and very dry read. Some examples are decent, but it is a bad introduction to Java, it vacillates between being a programming primer and comprehensive Java textbook. I would recomend Head First Java, it is a far gentler introduction and a lot more fun to read!

    This book has a special place in my heart. It was the first book I learned Java with when I got into software engineering. In addition to that, it was one of the first editions, and I found a spelling mistake, submitted a correction to the authors, and promptly received a thank-you email from one of the Deitls. Thank-me very much.

    this version is pretty outdated now, but I was a big fan of deitel&deitel books when I was learning how to program. they're best for new programmers in a new language. adept programmers wanting to learn a new language would probably find these books too slow. this version is pretty outdated now, but I was a big fan of deitel&deitel books when I was learning how to program. they're best for new programmers in a new language. adept programmers wanting to learn a new language would probably find these books too slow.

    I don't like Java very much so this book was used just for reference. Pretty standard book.

    At the time that I read this, this was one of the better books on introductory Java that exists then. It is a great learning companion for the beginners in Java. It is a very easy read with plenty of code examples and exercises.

    I would not consider this to be the best book for learning Java. I had to reference other books to fully understand a lot of concepts.

    The fourth edition was the one responsible to dive me into Java, full of comprehensible examples regarding the networking and concurrency methods with Servlets, JSP and Threads. Future versions just mentioned them and used them somewhat within application servers, but explained only superficially. However, although that edition detailed well the underlying technologies that power systems and frameworks today, the book is verbose and somewhat tedious.

Future versions just mentioned them and used them somewhat within application servers, but explained only superficially. However, although that edition detailed well the underlying technologies that power systems and frameworks today, the book is verbose and somewhat tedious. It demands willpower to follow through and go all the way around, not just in the 4th edition, but in the futures as well.

    Good reference for beginners. It has a good introduction, examples and exercises. But the OOP part is not good to teach OOP philosophy.

    First, this is not how you write specially a JAVA book. Second, every book has its uses. So this book will probably find its uses, where a novice programmer has no other resources i.e., a skilled programmer, to learn programming in Java. OR, your sole target is to familiar yourself with the 'syntax' by typing a lot of code. OR, you need to memorize some portions of the Java library in a short time. I think compared to this one, the C version is far better. Also, this is unnecessarily voluminous. First, this is not how you write specially a JAVA book. Second, every book has its uses.

But I remember, there were some good exercises in the book.

    You'd think a book with "How to Program" twice in its title would be all I need for a first-course primer, but I had to stop studying on this textbook for now. It's really great, I can tell (I think). The thing is, I have absolutely no appreciation for programming since I mostly come from an enthusiast hardware perspective. I mean, I had no idea HTML and CSS (which I'm fine with) were not programming branches - ugh. So, I'm putting it on queue while I go to the very basics - some tutorials, and You'd think a book with "How to Program" twice in its title would be all I need for a first-course primer, but I had to stop studying on this textbook for now.

So, I'm putting it on queue while I go to the very basics - some tutorials, and an introductory programming dummy-esque textbook. Hopefully I can get back to this - and other more advanced Java reads - when I have the fundamentals of the art of programming set down.

    This book taught me Java and some good programming practices along the way. The Deitel series is very structured (focused on theory and concepts, instead of applied projects), so you might not like it if you prefer hands-on manuals. Apart from that, the text is probably geared towards beginners or intermediate users, and I always encourage teenagers to learn structured programming using Deitel books. Each chapter has both theory and problems which can be used to review and applied recently learn This book taught me Java and some good programming practices along the way.

    A reasonable book for learning with lots of examples, activities, review and code exercises. Not good as a reference though and I seem to recall it was missing information on some subjects (can't think of what off-hand).

    A very good book for novices, but not so good for intermediates and a waste of time for users who have some experience with a C-based language. It has some comprehensive examples though, and some excellent exercises which most of the other books lack.

    I read the 3rd edition of this books, and it was the best book at that time. I don't if there are better options nowadays but I'd bet newer editions probably still around the best books on this language.

    I really liked this book and I am also grateful. Back in 2007 I started learning how to program Java using this book and the jobs I got as a Java programmer started with this book. I know there is more book about Java (and updated), but this book is in my heart.

    Excellent book! It covers virtually everything a professional Java programmer must know. The content goes from the most basic principles up to advanced techniques and concepts. Very well written, great examples!

    This was a really great book. It had a lot more examples of code than most books, which was helpful since I had a bad teacher for Java I.
