Hi Krystian,

I've written the book to aim at developers of different levels of experience, so it shouldn't be a problem. Having said that you might be better off with a more general Java book that lets you get up to speed with different areas of the language and platform. Perhaps something like "Effective Java" or "The Well Grounded Java Developer."

regards,

Richard

You might also look at Head First design patterns to improve your coding. If you concentrate on the principles behind the patterns that should help you design good code. Although you should note, those design patterns are Object Oriented. Lambda and Java 8 introduces Function coding which adds a new set of patterns.

ok i will think about it I am finishing now head first JSP and it's great book I was thinking about some books about Spring and hibernate after that. I have to learn it at home because in my job i am using java SE mostly.
If you have any other suggestions what to learn, books or something I am open for that thanks !

I'll second Richard's recommendation for "The Well-Grounded Java Developer". It covers a lot of material - including a look at Groovy, Scala, and Cllojure - but the focus on modern "best practices" makes it great reading for every Java developer, in my opinion.
