Title: Graphic Java 2, Volume 2: Swing (3rd Edition)

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A very comprehensive book


Mr. Geary has produced a wonderfully comprehensive guide to Java Swing, patiently explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each component, along with the theory behind Swing's framework. Every piece of software was written to solve a problem. If a programmer really wants to understand the limitations (i.e. how to use it effectively) of software, he/she must understand the problem it was developed to solve. Mr. Geary goes the extra step in his book to give the theory/history/reasoning behind Swing, as well as, providing examples you can actually use in your code. Congratulations on an outstanding job!!

Java Book for Experienced Programmer


This is one of the best Java books for experienced programmers. I have bought several editions. The current edition not as thick as the last one, so I can carry it around much easier. It also covers the object oriented language design philosophy very well in a concise way. Definitely should be a book next to every Java programmer.

Every Web designer should read this book


This is the third of Edward Tufte's brilliant trilogy on how information should be displayed. The Visual Display of Quantitative Information is about pictures of numbers. Envisioning Information is about picturing nouns. Visual Explanations is about picturing verbs. All three are beautiful artefacts in their own right, encapsulating the author's ideas in the actual production of the book. Each is crammed with examples of good and bad practice over the past centuries.
