This book is listed first when you search for it, but it is an old issue and out of print. Amazon wants 2 weeks to find this old edition for you. Look for a later edition of the same book further down the list. It usually ships in 1 day. Amazon should eliminate this problem by notifying customers that a later edition of a particular book exists.

Title: Effective Java Programming Language Guide

True to Its Name


This book is intended to follow in the footsteps of Scott Meyers' "Effective C++" books, and does a great job of it! The 57 (instead of Meyers' 50) topics are very well chosen, and the level of detail is excellent. Code examples, showing both the correct way and the wrong way to do things, are just the right length - complete enough to make their point, yet still nice and short. The items on equals(), clone(), and the typesafe enum pattern are worth the price of the book themselves. BTW, avoid the vastly inferior "Practical Java" - it's more of an introduction to Java, with much less detail, and many tips which will seem trivial to an experienced Java programmer.

It's a excellent book period.


A great book. It's really amazing. All computer graphics knowledge is here. Calling it "the bible of computer graphics" is not a mistake.

Unbelievably helpful


The book was unbelievably helpful for my small business. I found the answer to 3 questions that were really bothering me. And, I found the CD-ROM attached to the book very valuable for some employment forms and agreements. The author made some difficult concepts clear and interesting, which is the hallmark of the Dummies series. The forms alone probably will save me lots of money in legal bills.
