Learning a complex new language is no easy task especially when it's an object-oriented computer programming language like java. You might think the problem is your brain. It seems to have a mind of its own, a mind that doesn't always want to take in the dry, technical stuff you're forced to study. The fact is your brain craves novelty. It's constantly searching, scanning, waiting for something unusual to happen. After all, that's the way it was built to help you stay alive. It takes all the routine, ordinary, dull stuff and filters it to the background so it won't interfere with your brain's real work--recording things that matter. How does your brain know what matters? it's like the creators of the head first approach say, suppose you're out for a hike and a tiger jumps in front of you, what happens in your brain? neurons fire. Emotions crank up. Chemicals surge. That's how your brain knows. And that's how your brain will learn java. "head first java combines puzzles, strong visuals, mysteries, and soul-searching interviews with famous java objects to engage you in many different ways. It's fast, it's fun, and its effective. And, despite its playful appearance, head first java is serious stuff: a complete introduction to object-oriented programming and java. You'll learn everything from the fundamentals to advanced topics, including threads, network sockets, and distributed programming with rmi. And the new. Second edition focuses on java 5. 0, the latest version of the java language and development platform. Because java 5. 0 is a major update to the platform, with deep, code-level changes, even more careful study and implementation is required. So learning the head firstway is more important than ever. If you've read a head first book, you know what to expect--a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. If you haven't, you're in for a treat.

From the Inside Flap:

"It's fast, irreverent, fun and engaging. Be careful--you might actually learn something!" - Ken Arnold, coauthor (with James Gosling, creator of Java) The Java Programming Language "It's definitely time to dive in--Head First."

- Scott McNealy, Sun Microsystems, Chairman, President, and CEO

This is a book that is tailored for Java novices. Ideal for those who are interested in learning Java but have been put off by the complexities of learning the language, Head First Java explores a new way of teaching the same. Head First Java is aimed at people who are complete novices when it comes to programming with the language, and the book makes the learning experience fun - one that?s filled with innovative and novel measures. If you?re not a fan of wracking your brain with dull theoretical concepts that put you to sleep, Head First Java can be a welcome addition to your shelf. The book starts from the fundamentals and progresses to extremely advanced levels, employing an easy-to-learn approach throughout. From distributed programming with RMI and network sockets, object oriented design, and object properties and methods, to graphical user interfaces, Java archives, network connectivity and Java 5.0, the book explores every facet of the programming language with mysteries, puzzles and visuals that will keep you engaged. The unusual format is based on the theory that the brain needs stimulation to grasp complex issues. The adopted approach brings about a considerable reduction in the time required to grasp the language.
