    It's hard to answer these questions because different authors' styles appeal to different people. So here is what I would suggest. Look up a few highly rated books on Java and then note the authors. Then either go to the library, borrow from a friend, or buy some older less expensive books by the same authors to check out their style. It may help to do this in something with which you are already familiar. Then I would buy the book on Java by that author. It may not be a perfect solution, but it's a start. And probably worth the time if you are serious about learning.

    You can also do this by going to your favorite bookstore and sitting and reading various books by the authors. I would not recommend ordering books online based on others recommendations unless there is a good return policy.

    I also wouldn't skip the books about programming in general. Examples are:
    Code Complete, Second Edition, Steve McConnell
    The Pragmatic Programmer, Andrew Hunt and David Thomas
    Design Patterns, Erich Gamma et al. (Although the book is aging, it's still good for your programming experience).

    These books won't make you dumber :)

    And I will violate my guidance for one book, Effective Java, 2nd Ed. By Joshua Bloch. It was written before Java 7 but it is like a best practices book. Each topic is only a couple pages long and the book does not have to be read in any order. It is not a book from which to learn Java. It presumes you have a solid working knowledge of the language.

    +1 for Effective Java. This is is basically a book for seasoned Java developers to show them what they have been doing wrong all these years :) I learned a lot from it.
