This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Are you sure you need a book if you just want to get started with the fundamentals? The Maven web site has a lot of introductory and reference material; I'd give that a look before perusing something else.
