Default Error in text

Hi everyone,

Just noticed a typo thought i'd put it up...

On Page 26 the para under the boxed text titled CLASSES AND DATA TYPES, the first sentence should read:
"Programming is concerned with specifying how data of various kinds is to be processed, messaged, manipulated or transformed". (i.e. MASSAGED is to be changed to MESSAGED).

I also want to add that this is an excellent book for a total newbie like me to this fascinating language.

Mr. Horton, sir, you have the knack of leading the student in exactly the right kind of way.

Thanks also to Wrox publishers for bringing this book out.

Have a great day.

Kaizer


Wrox Rocks!

I agree with your comments about Wrox and Ivor, and if Wrox were still in business then I'm sure that they would have loved to read your comments. However, they went out of business earlier in the year. The rights to their books were split between Apress and Wiley.

I'm not sure if Ivor Horton has anything to do with this forum now, which is a shame as it was always a great buzz to get answers to your questions from the author of the book. Having said that, there a still a few guys around who really know there stuff (not me!), so don't hold back with your questions.

Cheers

Martyn

Dear Martyn,
WHAT!! Wrox is out of business?? Can't believe that. A pity that Mr. Horton has nothing to do with this forum any longer .

Thanks for your input anyway. It feels good to know that there are others (i'm sure you're quickly getting there!) who really know their stuff and can help out.

Cheers
Kaizer.

I agree that it is a real shame. I liked the Wrox format and have lots of their books. If you are pretty new to OO, then another 'old' Wrox book I would highly recommend is "Beginning Java Objects" by Jaquie Barker, which is now published by Apress. The focus on this book is not directed towards learning the Java API but on how to implement OO using Java. Have a look on Amazon and check out some of the reviews.

Cheers

Martyn
