Why buy the book?

Would the authors please list some reasons/give examples why people would buy their book vs. using the tutorials available from Sun online?

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.

It's refreshing to see two women authors in the industry...

You are completely correct. Originally the Swing Tutorial was available
online, but we received many requests for a book version.
Some people prefer paper and binding and we are happy to provide that.
Other people prefer URLs and printers and we are happy to provide that.
I might even be willing to have my children "illustrate" any particular
favorite pages (well, maybe not).
