This is an excellent update to a good book. More programs/games/scenarios with better and fuller explanations. Additional, short programming activities to build confidence and skill. Michael Kolling is brilliant.

A great book for a introduction to Java. The concept and practices are simple and very easy to understand.but I would not recommend it for someone who already have experience with Java, but really best for absolute beginner.I feel that it maybe a bit pricey for the content, but I still love it.

Very good book for teaching intro to programming. New edition has "drill and practice" sections at the end of each chapter (which was something the first edition was missing).

Just starting to teach AP CS A. Very helpful book from the creator of Greenfoot.
