Not what you'd expect


I've got tons (literally) of books on digital imaging, color management, Photoshop, color output and the like. Few belong at the top of the list but Johnson's book is one that belongs there. It's an exhausting and through book on the subject that many of us needed years ago. Along with the "Real World" series (Photoshop and Color Management), I've managed to use up more than a few yellow high-lighter pen's marking up the books for reference. This book should be required reading in all computer graphic classes!

A bad book for any novice!


From my own experience I found trying to learn from this book an extremely difficult task especially being new to programming in general. I have spent more time flipping through other books trying to make sense of what these authors have written. If you are a novice to programming I suggest something with easier reading and better explanation of the topics such as Sams, Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days as suggested by the last review.

Awesome, but a little dated


This book is great, even though its alittle dated cause it was published almost 3 yrs ago and uses booch notation for its diagrams. But it still gives you more useful information than other swing books that have been published since because it has so much information and great examples are all through the book. Gary should come out with a new edition but I gave it 5 stars cause its helped me learn swing and really understand swing more than any other book.

A staple for every programmer


AS a CS student, we had this book reccommnded for our data structures and our algorithms design courses. It was really usefull foor the algorithms design course (although I hadn't compared it to any other book...) but I did find a better book for the data structures course...
