Hi
"Java Puzzlers: Traps, Pitfalls, and Corner Cases"

What I can infer from this book's title is,
(i). This book is not for teaching how to program in java?
(ii). This is for people who already know and working in Java
(iii). This deals with the possible mistakes that we make while working with Java.

Am I right?.

And also it would be better if you can provide the contents of the book as well as some sample chapters so that I can get the complete idea of this book.

S.L.-
Try giving your thread a more helpful subject line -- something that describes what you're asking, rather than "to Joshua and Neal".

As for your question -- Check out AWProfessional's website

Sample Chapter
The description of the book will also help you answer your other question.

Enjoy

S.L.

Just to add to Jess's reply, your characterization is good. The book is for people who already know Java. You don't have to be an expert, but you should be comfortable reading and writing short programs. That said, the book should also be fun for experts. It contains material that should challenge even the best programmers out there. Some of the puzzles surprised the likes of Doug Lea

Regards,

Josh
