I just read the sample chapter for Java Cookbook. It was basically, Problem, Solution, Discussion. I have never owned a "recipes" book or "cookbook" for programming and wondered, Ian, if this was
how the entire book is structured and
is this the general format for all these types of books, or is this style unique to this book?

Thanks for writing. Yes, this is the general "Cookbook" style originated with the Perl cookbook, copied by me and a few others, and then turned into a "franchise" by O'Reilly. So yes, all the O'Reilly cookbooks are in the same (and might I add very useful and successful :-)) format.
