I am really thankful to you for head first java. It helped me a lot to
learn basis oop in java.
But i have few complains.

1. in head first c# and head first c, there are at least 3 lab
projects where anybody can learn put all the things together. but in
head first java there is no such projects Why? If there were at least
3 projects where from design to finish had written, then any body
could learn better. Put all the things together is very important.
will you add at least 3 projects in Upcoming head first java?

2.Head first c# has 3rd ed. But when 3rd ed of head first java will be

hope you will reply.

Welcome to the Ranch

Different people write the different books, so you cannot expect to read the same things in every book. I believe the old Head First Java was the earliest book in the Head First series (but am not sure) so the C and C# books may be learning from the experience of the older book.
I believe that Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates are working on a third edition to include Java8, but I don't know how far the project has got. There was nothing about a new edition on the O'Reilly website when I looked about a week ago.

Sorry I can't help you any more.
