<pre>Author/s : Sun Microsystems Publisher : Prentice Hall PTR Category :Other Review by : Jeanne Boyarsky Rating : 8 horseshoes</pre> "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.
