Core Java: Volume I, Fundamentals

By Cay S. Horstmann and Gary Cornell 
Publisher: Prentice Hall 
Publication Date: September 2007

   "About the book" These authors know the platform well and have structured the book in such a way that it's easy to find exactly the information or code samples you seek. The authors explain on the first page, "We still target serious programmers who want to put Java to work on real projects." They assume that readers of this book have a solid background in programming in another language, and they assume that you don't like toy or silly examples. Instead, the book is filled with examples that demonstrate almost every library and language feature.
