This book is the best book I have ever read. I recommend it to the readers who have basic knowledge in Java, then they can use or read this book effectively. This book contains almost everything about Java, so is better to use it to refresh the information and as a reference. Almost half of the book is about the Java libraries, which are the core of Java language, In addition to the three complete software examples at the last section,which will give the user some experience in developing kind of small softwares.

I've actually read the 9th edition. But as It is not listed on this Website, I've chosen to write a review on the next best thing, thus I'm writing here. The book is, in my opinion, great. It truly stands up to Its name, being helpful to me in many cases of need (and no Internet). I would recommend this to anyone, beginner or advanced. You can always use it as a reference.

The book indeed is complete, but lacks details you might need for your particular task so you will need further reading anyway.
