TechBookReport on 'Wicked Cool Java'
TBR writes "Sporting one of the worse titles in the history of Java book publishing, 'Wicked Cool Java' is an off compendium of material that makes the book hard to categorise. It's not a how-to book, though there's lots of how-to material in it. It's not a tutorial, though there's stuff on some of the newer core APIs, such as regular expressions, XML and string utils. It's not even an advanced Java book, though the book assumes a degree of competence that means it's not a title for beginners. So, what is and is it any good?"
