This book was in great shape and was purchased at a super low price. The book was arrived in just a few days.

The book contains straightforward, economical explanations that cut directly to the point. Ms. Smith's explanations of what constitutes an Object, an Instance, a method, instance variables, and the Class, are the best I've seen, and I've been programming for many years.
I appreciate also that, while the book is very clear and friendly, it does not insult the reader's intelligence.
I am reminded of a quote by Einstein. He said, "If you can speak of technical things only in technical terms, you do not understand them." That Ms. Smith has explained Java in such direct, common-sense terms proves that she indeed possess a master's understanding. We are indebted to her for sharing it. You will learn a great deal from this book, and you do so virtually effortlessly.

This book does a great job for the first time Java programmer. It's easy to read, Smith has a sense of humor, and she's squeezed in about as much detail as possible while still keeping the book readable in a few sittings. Beware she covers only Java 1.0 and this book is NOT a comprehensive reference but neither should be a problem if your goal is to learn the language from scratch. Smith makes a good argument for sticking to 1.0 for the time being. The book is particularly well suited to HTML programmers looking to use Java applets on their pages. It's also reasonably priced and doesn't resemble a phone book in either size or style--both refreshingly unusual in this genre.

I don't feel this book covered the fundamentals of Java very well, and I think if you are new to learning it this book would confuse you more than help. I was very disappointed in this book and I am a fan of the "visual quick start guides " I also start with them first and work my way through the books. This one in particular did not live up to them. I guess they can't all be winners. Unless you really already know Java and even then you will not understand the purpose of the book. If you are new to Java don't start with this book.

I have to say that I am a big fan of Dori Smith and the line of very well done books that go with the name, but "Java, a quick start guide?" Pretty much like saying "Heart Surgery, a quick start guide." This is a good book if you are using a few Java scripts on your website and but don't care about the language or how to program with it. Java goes much deeper than this and even the beginner may get some use out of this book but mostlikely will not learn much. Java is a key word now and this looks like an attempt to cash in on the market. I would also avoid books that say things like "C++ in twenty four hours!"

This book shields you from actually learning the Java language in depth. It's kind of like giving someone a calculator rather than teaching them how to multiply.
The additional web addresses to other Java websites was the only helpful thing I found in this book. I am currently reading Sams Java 1.2 and find that to be a more complete book that teaches you the foundation of Java.
I previously found no fault in the Visual Quickstart series, but I guess there is a first time for everything.
Maybe the 2nd edition will be a more complete package instead of this "Let me spoon feed Java" to you guide.

It's hard to find a book at the right level for me--I know how to program in C++, so I didn't need a lesson in loops and decision structures. I needed to learn how to use AWT components, and all the other books I have don't talk about applets and GUI components until the end of the book. Most books are pushing Java2, which isn't even supported by the compiler or browsers I have! This book is perfect! It assumes programming experience, but it doesn't assume any Java knowledge. It really gives you a QuickStart--getting down and dirty with code right away, but not biting off too much at one time! It stays with Java 1, which is what I needed. Dori Smith is a fantastic teacher. Her style and wit and choice of topics and sequence were superb. The appendix, explaining the new event model of JDK 1.1, finally showed me what all the other books had been confusing me with.
There are a lot of examples, but little of the concepts and structure of JavaScript is covered. It would be helpful to know the rules that govern the tool as well as the examples that are given.
The on-line access to the examples in the book so that you do not have to re-type everything you want to use is a nice touch.
I found it not very helpful when trying to use it as a reference for my Lotus Notes application that uses JavaScript. Definitely geared towards development on the Web as indicated in the title.
