I am new to JAVA, the book with which I began - "Head First Java" by K.Serra.

I try to understand each page, and I think I understand the material, quite confidently perform all tasks. But not pool puzzles . They are hard, very tight in terms of logic. Tell me if I did not get to solve them myself, does this mean that i am bad programmer in the future? Or it is normal...

Not many people are programmers-at-birth. Most of us get there with practice, practice, practice. The important thing is to have fun while you learn. If your enjoying yourself, keep practicing.

I have seen the strip before. Have you seen Peter Norvig's take on 21 days?

I've been a programmer for 37 years, and was introduced to Object-Orientation (through C++) in 1995 or 6 (around my 20th year in the biz).
I regard myself as a reasonably intelligent bloke, but took me until 2007/8 - including 7 years on and off with Java - before I really "got it" though. That didn't stop me from writing some decent programs in the meantime.
