Disagree. Disagree a lot. You need to check
  • that the style of writing suits you,
  • that you can understand the book,
  • that it is up to date (there was, for example, a book called Teach Yourself Java which about 3 years ago still used JDK1.2 code).
  • and (at least in my opinion) that it teaches proper object-orientation.
  • There are many good books available, but some which fail on some of those points.

    I'd agree with the Head First recommendation for somebody new to Java, it does a great job at anticipating questions and answering them without making you feel like an idiot

    Read Sun's tutorials They are always up-to-date. You will not have to worry about books written for older versions of Java. I also think is a brilliant site for learning Java for a newbie.
