TechBookReport on 'Head First Java'
TBR writes "The first edition of 'Head First Java' was the launch title for whole 'Head First..' series published by O'Reilly. It established the pattern that the rest of the books have continued to follow, and which others are starting (and so far failing) to copy. Head First books are funny, irreverent, well-designed, as interactive as it's possible to be on paper and generally attempt to get useful information into the reader's head using as many routes as possible. It works too. Now, following the release of Java 5.0, comes a new edition of the book."
