You really should work toward understanding the GoF book, but if not, you can try this link to James Cooper's web page, which is popular. After going through this, you should probably go back and reread the GoF book. Another thing that might help is if you actually wrote some code using the patterns - it helped me. Good luck.

"patterns in java" by mark grand what you want but it is a poor relation to the gof. the only advantage is that the examples are in java.
the reviews on Amazon are quite damming.
brilliant as it is, the gof is probably the most unreadable book on earth.

One of our previous moderators recommends Applied Java Patterns.
I have Grand's first volume and GOF. I should sell my GOF book.

I can't say I could recommend either Grand's book or Applied Java Patterns. I own both.
IMHO, the best book outside of GoF is Martin FowlersPatterns of Enterprise Application Architecture.Although it is not a strict reprise of the GoF, it does quite well in detailing realistic pattern application.
Over the years, I've narrowed the books I'll buy iff they are on my personal list of approved authors. Fowler is near the top of the list.

Bruce Eckels (Thinking in Java, Thinking in C++...) is also working on "Thinking in Patterns with Java" which is currently at revision 0.9 and can be downloaded from that link.
