I've used your Beginner's Guides as an Intro to Java textbook for the past five years. Now I have a client that wants a course that starts with the basics and gets into web services and JSP/Servlets with lots of useful hands-on examples.
Haven't gotten a copy of your book yet (probably by February) but would like to know how well you think your new title would tailor to a classroom setting.

One other thing: As I write this we are experiencing an ice storm. I hope that it does not get any worse than it is, and I hope that the power does not go out. However, it is possible that I will be "off-line" from time to time because of the weather situation.
Long back going to my college days, when Herbert Shcildt was analogous to Java.They used to say if you have not read the Complete reference you dont know Java.Still its the same way.I would like to convey my thanks and Regards to Herbert.
