Rezension bezieht sich auf: Head First Design Patterns (Taschenbuch)
I bought this book to give Java learning a new impuls. I am a seasoned programmer in Modula-2 with some knowledge of Oberon and Pascal. I know the books of Niklaus Wirth from my head.
I should not have read the Wirth books before. Because this Head First book has such a low information density that it gets boring. You know you can skip 75% of each page, but you don't know WHICH 25% to read!
In Wirth's books I can read up to 20 pages per day. Then I need time to relax and have the new knowlegde settle in. With head First books (yes, all of them) you can do 25 pages per hour for hours on end. 100 pages per day is no exception. But there is so little information in the pages that what you learn is very superficial. Too much energy has been wasted on being funny. On being loose. On silly quizzes that treat me like a 12 year old. Many things are only funny or comprehensible for americans.
The code examples are meant to be funny but they should have been meant to be information. After 300 pages I still know nothing of Java but a lot more about baseball...
Don't buy this book if you're from Europe.

S. Rupp meint:
OMG, this book is not about teaching / learning Java, it is about design patterns which are - by definition - language independent. Hence, Java is used as an example in order to show how design patterns may be implemented using a modern OO-language. So, if your intention is to learn Java, buy a Java specific book such as Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in Java" or make use of one of the trillions Java tutorials out there. But blaming a book on design patterns for not teaching Java isn't fair at all...

I. Leonov meint:
Totally agree with that. That's a book on Design Patterns, not JAVA. And the book is really great! ;)
even oiur professor in software engineering uses it =). I had the exam a few days ago and because of that book the design pattern tasks were no problem at all ;). This book rocks ;)

Baseball? Are you sure that there is something about Baseball in *this* book? As I own the "HF" C#-Book too, I feel you mixed something up, as in that book there is an example about a baseball game...
