Would honestly prefered if Chapter 12 or 14 was the sample chapter instead. At least it would tell us something new, which the book is geared towards (telling us new stuffs about J2SE 5.0), rather than telling us something most of us knew.
McGraw-Hill controls which chapters they post as samples. Personally, I was hoping that they would post chapter 5, which contains material about the new for-each style for loop, but ...
With all the requests, perhaps I can get them to change the chapter, but it will probably take a week or two....

One other point: I think that McGraw-Hill chose Chapter One because it sets the tone for the book, which is a serious, in-depth description of the Java language, its libraries, its philosophy, and application.
