9780136597230: Thinking in Java (1st Edition)

Thinking in Java is a "brash, arrogant, opinionated, independent, knowledgeable, interesting, readable book on Java." Eckel uses superb analogies between software concepts and everyday things to deliver a book ideal for teaching. It is unique because it was made available by Eckel on the Internet and so has been tested by thousands of users. Many of these people are waiting for the book to arrive.

  • For beginners and experts alike.
  • Teaches Java linguistics, not platform-dependent mechanics.
  • Covers the most important aspects of Java 2: Swing and the new collections.
  • Thorough coverage of advanced Java topics: network programming, multithreading, virtual machine performance, and connecting to non-Java code.
  • 320 working Java programs, 15,000+ lines of code.
  • Explains sound object-oriented principles, from inheritance to design patterns.
  • From an independent voice, award-winning author Bruce Eckel.
  • Source code and continuously updated, electronic version of the book freely available on the World Wide Web.
  • Companion CD (with more than 15 hours of integrated audio lectures) available at www.BruceEckel.com
