Rogers Cadenhead: Does your new book cover JavaFX?

Hi Rogers - I learned some basic java 6 a few years ago using one of your books (the 21 days book, I think) and now I want to return to java for a new project. I have a couple of questions:

1) Is this new book appropriate for someone that already knows the basics, and that has experience with other programming languages?

2) What book would you recommend for someone after finishing this book?

3) Does your book cover JavaFX?

My book would be good for someone who didn't get too far into the basics of Java programming and wants a refresher on that *plus* some coverage of more advanced topics.

The next book to read depends on what kind of Java programming you most want to do. If you're interested in creating Android apps, I recommend the new edition of Sams Teach Yourself Android Application Development in 24 Hours that came out in October. (ISBN 0-672-33444-5.)

My book doesn't cover JavaFX. I'd like to cover it but haven't found room for both it and Swing yet. I may be able to get it in the next edition of Java in 21 Days, which I'm about to start work on.
I agree. Here's the link:
