“I believe your Java GUI programming book as one of the best and I enjoy learning from them. One of the things I like about your tutorials is that they teach you how to create and build sensible programs. That to me makes a lot of sense, rather than just to learn a bunch of Java basics, like what I see in other books . I have really appreciated the books I bought from you. I will tell anyone about your publication because I am 100% certain they are simply the best! There are no other Java books like yours.” – Carvel Bell, Java Developer, Uniondale, NY
