Shelves: computers This books has a lot of good puzzles designed to make you think about how Java works. Java Puzzlers is not so much a book, but a collection of obscure corner cases in the Java programming language. The author Joshua Bloch is well known as the author of "Effective Java" which is widely regarded as the premier text for the language, and furthermore he is one the designers and authors of the Java Collections Framework.
