I'm not familiar with either (not a huge fan of Wrox books). Which one to purchase depends entirely on what you're after - read the editorial and customer comments at amazon, and have a look at the excerpts - particularly table of contents, to see exactly what the book deals with. If you are after an intro book, I'm half way through reading Head First Java (authors are a couple of the locals at JavaRanch) So far it's a good read, it flows and is easy to follow.

Michell, I think that this is the thread where you posted your question. Michael Dunn is correct, look here too. I have not read the book so I cannot comment. A more recent and popular book (my son and a collegue learning Java at work think it's great fun) is Head First Java.
