A good book for the basics (and as prep for Sun programmer ceritification) is Head First Java from Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. A more comprehensive, and also very good, book is Thinking in Java from Bruse Eckel. Good luck and hav efun !

I'd echo Jef's suggestion of Head First Java. It will make your brain happy!
