Thinking in Java

I love Bruce Eckel's book.

I chanced upon Bruce Eckel’s book, Thinking in Java, vol. 3. It is available as an HTML archive for download. Code samples are also available for download.

Superb book. I found it much better than Sun’s Java Tutorial. This is something you can actually read on a monitor. My only gripe is that each chapter is one big page, so it is a bit tough to concentrate when your eyes are strained. However, the pace and style of presentation almost makes this a non-issue.

I ran through first 3 chapters in a couple of hours - before my eyes started hurting. I’m going to go back and do all example questions and complete the book. I feel good - I’ve not done that since finishing college in 1993.
