Previous Praise for books by the authors

From the awesome Head First Java folks, this book uses every conceivable trick to help you understand and remember. Not just loads of pictures: pictures of humans, which tend to interest other humans. Surprises everywhere. Stories, because humans love narrative. (Stories about things like pizza and chocolate. Need we say more?) Plus, it’s darned funny.

Bill Camarda, READ ONLY

“This book’s admirable clarity, humor and substantial doses of clever make it the sort of book that helps even non-programmers think well about problem-solving.”

Cory Doctorow, co-editor of Boing Boing and author of “Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom” and “Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town”

“I feel like a thousand pounds of books have just been lifted off of my head.”

Ward Cunningham, inventor of the Wiki and founder of the Hillside Group

“This book is close to perfect, because of the way it combines expertise and readability. It speaks with authority and it reads beautifully. It’s one of the very few software books I’ve ever read that strikes me as indispensable. (I’d put maybe 10 books in this category, at the outside.)”

David Gelernter, Professor of Computer Science, Yale University and author of “Mirror Worlds” and “Machine Beauty”

“A Nose Dive into the realm of patterns, a land where complex things become simple, but where simple things can also become complex. I can think of no better tour guides than the Freemans.”

Miko Matsumura, Industry Analyst, The Middleware Company Former Chief Java Evangelist, Sun Microsystems

“I laughed, I cried, it moved me.”

Daniel Steinberg, Editor-in-Chief, java.net

“Just the right tone for the geeked-out, casual-cool guru coder in all of us. The right reference for practical development strategies—gets my brain going without having to slog through a bunch of tired, stale professor-speak.”

Travis Kalanick, Founder of Scour and Red Swoosh Member of the MIT TR100

“I literally love this book. In fact, I kissed this book in front of my wife.”
