Excellent book - perfect for the advanced user
This is a great book for the advanced user. A must have on the bookshelf for Swing programmers. The book does not waste pages explaining basic concepts. It jumps right into the subject from page 1 itself. There are lots of examples to review. I also found it useful as a reference book.
Who should buy?
If you are an advanced Java programmer or have worked on Swing/AWT in the past, then this book is for you.
If you are a novice and this is your first foray into Swing, then this is not the book for you.

Has an exceedingly high "density" of valuable information. Very up-to-date as of Java 1.4. Started helping me in my day-to-day professional Swing programming from Day One...

Excellent Coverage of Swing Details, Bad Styles
I do like the the levels of details that the authors chose to cover Java Swing. A lot of difficult concepts are pretty clearly explained by examples and notes. But I do not like the naming conventions that the authors used. I think that it is unnecessary to use extra characters(m and underscore)for naming instance variables :-)
O'Reilly's Java Swing 2nd edition is also up to date, and it takes a different approach to Swing. Check it out!
