"Hello Worlds" celebrates Java turning 10. With special paper and pictures galore, the book walks through the history of Java.

This is not a technical book and reads like the story it is. Cute anecdotes are included from the programming language's conception to launch to present day. There's even a post-it note with how the name Java was picked. And of course, Duke -- the Java mascot -- is in there.

The book takes less than an hour to read, but makes a nice commemorative item. It also makes a great holiday stocking stuffer in the $20 range. I know I enjoyed reading about the origins of Java.
