  • An equivalent book in Java to Accelerate

An equivalent book in Java to Accelerated C++?

Accelerated C++ is a great book. Is there a similar book in Java?
Short, dense, packed with info, but clear?

I dont want to read 800+ pages of usual Java books to learn basic Java.
I'm not familiar with Accelerated C++, but Core Java is an excellent book http://www.amazon.com/Core-Volume-I-Fundamentals-Edition-Series/dp/0137081898
I would agree with naraku9333, Core Java, Volume I & II are very good. You will have to wait for the ninth edition (updated to reflect Java SE 7) but the eighth edition covers Java SE 6. They are design to get you up to speed quickly if you already know a language (including earlier versions of Java).
Thanks. I will get the Core Java book!
