javascript or java language?

For javascript, I would recommend you "JavaScript Bible 2nd edition" by Danny Goodman (http://www.dannyg.com)

For java,

To get started, try
"The Java tutorial : object-oriented programming for the Internet"
by Mary Campione and Kathy Walrath.
There's an online version for this book. It's at
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/index.html

If you want to learn about data structure in java, you can try reading "Data structures in Java" by Thomas A. Standish.

If you are C/C++ programmers, you might want to try
"Java for C/C++ programmers"
by Michael C. Daconta.

Hope this will help you.

In amazon.com, there is no book called "Learn Java in 21 Days". Did you mean "Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days"?

I haven't read this book, but from my personal experience, I never believe books which titles "learn ..... in 1 week, 21 days, 24 hours, etc".

To master any programming language, there is only one secret.
Keep practice and practice, look at someone code (not stealing!), try figure out how their codes work, and play around with it. And it's impossible to master any computer language in less than 1 month, unless you are really really a genious.

Also, a book that claims you can learn something in a short time, usually does not cover the material deeply.

Think about my opinion, before you decide to buy "Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days". Read people opinion at amazon.com. Did they give this book a great rating? :)
