    Default Is this book <JAVA in a netshell> good for beginners?

    Is this book, <JAVA in a netshell> 4th ed, a good book?
    Java in a Nutshell, Fourth Edition: David Flanagan: Books[/url]

    Has anybody read it? I am a C++ programmer and just want to quickly get started with java for simple JAVA programming. Because I don't have time to read <Thinking in JAVA> at this moment, I just want a book to quickly guide me how to program in JAVA and to get familiar with basic JAVA knowledge, such as how to compile JAVA code in linux, what is JAR, common knowledge of JAVA lib/packages, Java Beans basics, etc.

    Would anybody recommend a book? Thanks.

    Java in a Nutshell, like all the other "nutshell" books is more of a reference book. Its designed to be used to refresh you after you can't exactly remember the syntax or arguments.

    I would not recommend it to a beginner. I'd find some "java for idiots" or "teach yourself Java in 21 minutes" book
