I recently bought Effective Java Programming Language Guide by Joshua Bloch, and I’m really enjoying it.

One particularly entertaining bit is this quote by James Gosling (inventor of Java) on the back:

“I sure wish I had this book ten years ago. Some might think that I don’t need any Java books, but I need this one.”
