    As far as a physical book, I'm using: Amazon.com: Sams Teach Yourself Java 6 in 21 Days (5th Edition) (9780672329432): Rogers Cadenhead, Laura Lemay: Books

    I'm not following the whole 21 days part, though!

    For current, clear, albeit digital information: The Java™ Tutorials

    I don't know much about mobile development, so I can't really help you out there...

    Good luck!

    If you've done C then the Oracle tutorials shouldn't pose a problem for you, though as said they are digital.
    You don;t have to do them online, at least, since you can download the whole shebang (which covers pretty much everything in the SE).

    If you're planning on doing mobile development then, after getting to grips with Java via the first few tutorials there (basics, collections, don't bother with Swing), you'll probably want to look at Android.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Hey Tolls!

    I noticed you mentioned not to bother with Swing. I haven't covered Swing yet as well, so are you saying that there is something better to learn as far as graphics?

    Well, if you're doing Java with an aim to do mobile apps (which translates these days as "Android") then there's little point doing Swing since Android has it's own GUI framework.

    Thinking in Java is supposed to be a good one.
    I assume 4th edition is the newest one.

    Couldn't say for Android, but I'd suggest if you've gone through Eckel's book first that an "Absolute beginners" one is probbaly too basic, since it'll spend a long time covering basic Java stuff.

    This O'Reilly one is one of the ones I've got, which got me started. You might find the "working through one app" approach a bit limiting, some people do apparently.
