Does anyone have some java book recommendations that are at like a beginner-medium difficulty? I know I can learn online but I really don't like staring at a computer screen all day long. Thanks!

my thoughts exactly. Especially since you've been around these forums for almost half a year.

I've been studying for the Java Associate Certification test, using some software by Enthuware. One of the chapters they linked to, for background help with a topic, was "Java in a Nutshell."

I was impressed. I like that it is no frills, no cuteness, no drama, just succinct and well written explanations. It seems like it will make a good reference, too.

And it doesn't weigh 15 pounds and cost 150$ (both numbers are exaggerations) like the two volume "Core Java" by Horstmann, my other recommendation--but books that size just make me want to go back to reading online. It would be nice if someone invented a book spine with detachable segments so you could just take the chapter you are interested in.
