Having purchased both the Head First Java and Head First EJB, I can attest to the quality and usefulness of the Head First Series. I frequently recommend HFJ to new Java programmers. I haven't yet had a chance to see the new book, but I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Howdy y'all!

We've been away for a few days, but you'll be seeing a lot of us this week

Bryan Basham, our co-author, decided to get married last week, at a really amazing ceremony in New York (Bert and I flew out there, which is part of the reason we were gone for a while), so he's still using the "I'm on my honeymoon" excuse, but I think he'll be here this week at least a little bit. Between the three of us, he's really the one with the deepest technical knowledge on these topics (he is a Servlets & JSP specialist at Sun), so we will sometimes defer questions until Bryan can come in and provide the best answer.

Cheers and let's have some fun!
Kathy

Congrats Bryan!
I hope you three had a beer for each one of us here!
On second thoughts, it's probably a good job you didn't or you wouldn't have made it back here!

You should give the people a choice... because some of them might already have this book (including me). So, rather give a choice between this book and the new one "Head First Design Patterns" !!!

Kathy and Bert, I hope you gave Bryan a bachelor's party before his wedding

Congrats Bryan.. and welcome back the three of you .

Hi all,

Thanks for the well-wishes. It's been a hectic week as I catch up on my day job, HFS errata, JavaRanch, and several side projects. I hope to be more active on this forum from time-to-time.

Cheers,
Bryan
