Respected Arulkumaran, Thank you for accepting my invite. I have been your long time fan of your Java companion book! I was dejected with my rejections in interview about 8 years ago. I just read around 100 pages from your book and since then I have not flunked my interviews! Vivek via

I can safely say you’d have to buy probably at least 15 individual books and supplement this with reading articles off the internet to get the equivalent diversity of coverage elsewhere. I used it to validate my acquired knowledge. It’s a good mind jogger and identified a few gaps in my knowledge that I’ve expanded upon. I particularly liked the coverage of Design Patterns throughout the book, especially in the “How would you go about…” section. By Mr. Jeremy
