Hello Kishori Sharan,

Nice job for writing these java books!

Since books are not free, besides winning, I wonder why someone should buy your books?

There are great beginners/certifications books by K&B, there is reference book by Herbert Schildt, free Java API ..... and you have internet(forums, tutorials).

So, what is your books selling point? Do you cover 'everything', every tiny detail with a lot of code examples and assignments? Do your books have learning by doing approach?

Besides the content, I love the layout of your books. I think it looks great as a serie on my shelf =)

Congrats,

Steven

At $37 each, they are not expensive.

In my humble experience, a good book is the best way to learn something.with no much exceptions, most of the sites with tutorial i've seen tend to be too much concise without giving - or at least trying to give - you a deep understanding of a matter. In this specific case, having kept arguments separated in three books let me think the author had a specific path of teaching in its mind, and it's an approach i think is valuable because you may choose to pick the part you're interested on.
