Hi "Java Actually" authors,

My question is "Why should one go for Java Actually?" There are so many books available in the market of Java, with Java Actually generics is not
discussed as I find in the contents of the book. Is "Java Actually" for complete beginners? When any book comes, it has certain features, some books
come with a lot of coding examples (somebody like this), some books come
with keeping in mind specific readers, some books come with very lucid language to comprehend easily and so on!

So what is the specialty of "Java Actually" in this regard? Will it prove to sell authors name only?

Thanks and Regards,

Our book is for beginners, without the frills.
Please take a look at the material we have put out on the website:
Specially the Preface.

The second "volume" will cover more advances topics like generics and GUI.
