Hi Herb,

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.

Thanks

Welcome to JavaRanch Bairn!

Please ask questions in a separate/new thread. This thread is just for welcoming the author. Also note that posts in this thread are not eligible to win in the promotion. So you increase your chances by asking outside this thread. It also helps people discuss if they find the topic particularly interesting.

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.

Assuming you remain online an are not frozen out, how suitable is this book for beginners, or is it a book for people who can program already and need additional "recipes?"

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.
