Is it a good time to write a "first course" book on Java?
There are so many similar books in market, how to differentiate this book with other books?

I don't mind to get a copy and have a look.

Hi,
It seems that this book concentrates on OOP using java, this is already done in many books by many authors,And also I think you have concentrated more on computing knowledge using java which will lead to less concentration on java topics.Any how need to see the actual content rather than books description. Hope this book will also be like your old books and steal the readers minds.

Welcome!

To echo what Dave said: this thread is for welcoming the authors. All questions about the book should go in other threads.
