If you should have a reference book about Java among the many, get this one (It is part of a 2 volumes set).
It might not be complete on each concept, but it is a very good start for all of them. It gives serious comprehensive overviews and examples.

The drawback about the examples is that they are not sent on a CD or DVD along with the books. So you have to create an account and log on Safari online to get the book... page by page!!! It's a pity :-(

Like many reviewers I find the the Core Java series to be very valuable. However, be forewarned that the kindle edition is not a good representation of the book. The figures are completely useless either because they have not taken the time to convert them properly or because the kindle technology is simply incapable of displaying non-text content properly. I wish I had known this before I paid for the kindle edition of this book.

The Core Java (vol 1 and 2) are simply superb books. If you are a developer looking for thorough books on this subject, look no further.
