Best Java book you have read this year?

By far, and i mean by lots, the best book for Java development in 2005 is Wrox's book: Java JDK 5 Edition, ISBN: 0764574868.

This book cuts to the chase for real Java development unlike some other publishings that seem to dwell on API spec's that can easily be looked up online or thru your IDE.

I cannot single out one chapter as being better than the another because they're all very good. I came across this book as a mandatory text for my graduate class and was not disappointed. Sure I had a few years of Java development under my belt, but the authors really do outline basic Java 5 constructs and server side component development better than anyone out there. Not sure why the hypesters have not pushed this book like so many of the others out there chasing $$$....
