My answer is this, Head First Java by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates (founders of this website) is a good introduction to the Java language and Java programming. Also, JAVA How to Program by Deitel & Deitel is another good introductory book.

Computer languages are very similar to English or Hindi or Arabic. You cannot write computer code without being careful about your syntax and grammar. You cannot write spoken languages (like English) without being careful about your syntax or grammar. Look at the last question that you asked me. Did you give your best effort to write a coherent question in English? Everything you type/write is practice time for when you are writing code in Java. English is a case sensitive language. Writing everything in lowercase is carelessness.

I cannot write in Hindi or Arabic, so maybe I should hold my tongue. Is the wording of your last question, the best that you can do?

Most will advice Head First Java, but personally, I really don't like the Head First series. I'd advice Ivar Horton's Beginning Java.

I believe that Head First Java was the first and prototypical book of the Head First series. The whole series started with that textbook.

Oracle has a very good set of tutorials, going from the absolute beginner level to advanced topics: The Java Tutorials.

My advice is: Don't try to go too fast and learn too many things at once. Start slowly, make sure you understand the basics well. Ofcourse, if you have questions while learning, ask them on the forums here!

I think Introduction to Java programming Y.Daniel Liang is the best book for you
and the advice of "Jasper de long" is very very important

In programming, you learn from examples, from practice, from your mistakes.you need to devote a lot of time to writing programs, testing them, and fixing errors .
