An excellent book covering some of the finer points of Java programming. I saw the
author speak at a conference and he's an excellent speaker too. This book covers
optimization tips and gotchas in Java. I liked the way the book was organized to I could
easily skip over stuff I didn't care about or already knew about. I expect I'll refer back
to this book frequently. (trailboss Apr 2000)

Still going through this book. Looks like a good book from which to learn good Java programming practices (or PRAXIS, as the author calls them).
So far (I'm still on PRAXIS 15 of 68), I haven't read anything that's really new to me but then again I have a few years of programming experience under my belt and the PRAXIS deal with issues that are often discussed in JavaRanch. The PRAXIS on Performance and MultiThreading look promising though and I hope to learn a few things from those.
If you already know Java and are looking to build a solid foundation of good programming practices, this book is for you.

Something must be done about this. Let's start by reading this tiny ad:
