I need a good Java book. By good,I mean which starts from the ground up and assumes some knowledge of Object Oriented Programming". Not too much of dabbling in graphics though. Must be lucid .

Sudhakar and as expected CEHJ have come up with great help.I will soon check the other solutions too.Looks like a tough decision for me to make.

Accepting one answer does not mean that the other(s) were not upto the mark.

Thanks again.

Depends what you want. The reason i recommended TIJ is that it's not only good - it's available free. If you're serious about Java, you'll probably not want to be without
