Welcome back Cay, we've got your favourite easy chair ready for you to settle in and answer some of our questions. Have a great promo week!

I managed to get hold of a copy of the book a couple of weeks ago and have posted a review of what I thought of it (Spoiler: I loved it). I hope our readers find it useful.

Good to see you back

I shall have to think of some interesting questions for you; I have always liked your books and have about three different editions of Core Java II. I even paid for some of them

Hello Cay S. Horstmann,

Most welcome and glad to see an updated copy of your book in 2018. I am a big fan of yours, already read Java SE 8 for Really Impatient, Scala for Inpatient and Core Java Volume 1 and 2.

Thanks for creating such awesome books.
