In my experience I have lots of importanance given to the Basics. Especially Object Oriented Programming. How java takes up multiple inhertance,diamond problem etc... What advantages Java has to other languagues. Possibly Basics are too important after that its all your attitude to learn new things.
Hope the Book cover all these in detail.
