This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am obviously biased, but I believe that my book significantly reduces the steepness of the Laszlo learning curve. I believe that most people that had difficulty *getting* Laszlo had difficulty understanding how all the pieces fit together. So my book features a full-length application that is built on a chapter by chapter basis, this makes it pretty obvious how the pieces fit together.
