    Default Best Book to learn Java

    Hello
    I was wondering if there is like a really good book to learn Java. I have an instructor, he teaches me through Skype. But he does not have a book he told me to get instead I told him to use this PDF, but I cannot keep reading books looking at an LCD screen,. So if there is a book written in plain english, which is in book and PDF.

    Current Book: http://myflex.org/books/java4kids/JavaKid811.pdf

    How old are you? Is there a reason you're reading a book for kids?

    The Java tutorials are available in book form.

    Here are the tutorials: The Java™ Tutorials

    On the right side of that page, there are a few links in a box labeled "In Book Form". Check them out.

    Another good book which I recommend quite often is head first java. It covers a wide variety of topics in depth. It also gives you an introduction to some more complicated concepts. I suggest you read more than one book simultaneously, it will prove invaluable. Different books have different styles, some better for others, some worse.

    If you are a beginner, you can try out some basic level books on OOP and object-class model.
    Just as you start, keep in touch with another very useful book.

    This book has been one of my best choices for years and has never let me down.

    It has every detail on every module and several different topics to cover. So you won't miss anything.

    Java - The Complete Reference - by Herbert Schildt and published by Tata-McGraw Hill publications.

    I would prefer "Head first Java" and Java tutorial in Official website
    Reason, Head first really make you comfortable to learn Java as newbie
    But still it is not complete reference book, it is best one to start with!
    Happy learning

    Guys, pay attention to the post dates. This thread is over 2 years old, and chances are the OP is long gone by now.
