TechBookReport on 'The Java Phrasebook'
TBR writes "Elliote Rusty Harold, acclaimed Java and XML author, recently described Java as the lingua franca of the programming world. According to Harold he can write basic Java and have it understood by non-Java programmers more often than not. It's the language of choice for computer science education and is so ubiquitous in development that many programmers can follow Java code even if they've never had to write a line of Java code for themselves. However, for those non-Java developers who need a bit more than pidgin Java, help is at hand in the form of the Java Phrasebook by Timothy Fisher."
