You get what you pay for. More of an overview of what Java can do rather than a true programming book.

Sam’s Teach Yourself Java in 24 Hours is a true book to its name,depending on your skill set, that is. From HelloWorld, to Internet Applications, each hour, this Java text book teaches you the basics of Java coding. This textbook keeps it light hearted by throwing around some light hearted dad jokes, throughout each chapter; yet keeps you challenged with end of chapter quizzes and Q&As. If you are a complete beginner to Java coding, it may take you more than twenty-four hours to complete, as ...more

I got this book for free, so I dropped out of the Java class I'd enrolled in and tried to teach it to myself.

Well, naturally I don't *actually* blame the book for it, but I will say that it's not the best programming book I've ever read. It's a good little intro, but its heavy bias towards Windows and its particular set of examples just didn't quite work for me. Could be that it'll work better f ...more

Very good and detailed book.
Full of enough humor to keep you from being completely stupefied.
As a novice to this type of coding I can assure you that I will not be coding in Java in 24 hours.
However, if you have coding background then this is a great book that will get you coding in Java quickly.
I, on the other hand, will be moving slower. However, this has helped give me a few keys to get started.
Worth reading.

It saves my life. It's so useful if you want to review all the concepts about this programming language. Also, I learn things that I didn't know because it tells you in a really easy way to understand

Good resource for beginners - for the price.

It was certainly not 24 hours for the newcomers to Java, but it was informational, it gave great tips, and far more easy to follow than most classes that I've taken.
