By C. A. Thompson
I'm halfway through this book and so far it's been pretty good. He explains things well although I would have liked more hands-on exercises that had real-world goals and examples. Many of the exercises (around 75%) use specific and/or real-world examples but there are a good number of them that are more conceptual and I found these hard to follow (around 25%). Still, overall, it seems to be a good "Intro to Java" book.

5Good book for beginners
By Pravin Pathak
Good book for beginners. Introduces not only JAVA syntax but also concepts. At the end it covers basic language to good extent.

5Solid book
By OphirDude
This is more than a simple beginner's guide. It may beyond the scope for a first time programmer who is taking a leap into object oriented programming. For those who have done a little bit of programming and wish to push their skills forward, this is an excellent book, especially for those with more structured and logical thinking.
