Hi all,

Absolute pleasure to be here, especially amongst so many friends, colleagues and users who helped us shape the book! Ben and I are in the BST time zone (GMT+1) so our apologies if we don't jump on questions immediately.

Looking forward to the fun!

I am really really waiting to get a copy of this book. This is the book one has to read if they are wondering which one to pick after Effective Java Great thought out content.
Welcome Martijn and Ben, hoping to be an exciting promo week!

We started the promo in the middle of the BST night for your convenience . Or maybe it was our convenience.
