Buy your books from here and support JCHQ!

If you buy a book from amazon by clicking on a link from this site I get a "kickback" a percentage of the price. You don't pay any more than the regular price and you help to support this site with its hundreds of pages of information. I will get a commission whatever books you buy from Amazon so long as you start from a link on this site.The other way of funding a web site like this is to plaster it with banner ads that make it look tacky and slow down your browsing experience (I may yet do a bit of that :-). The commercial ends HERE...

The cost of computer books.

Here in the UK Computer books are considerably more expensive than in the US, you can generally add on at least 25% and sometimes more like 50% to the US price. I know that computer books are even more expensive in other parts of the world, so selecting a book can be very important. I have been buying Java books since 1995 (yes, before Java 1.0) . The good news is that only one that is a complete waste of money (Cary Jardin Certification Guide).I have just counted 50 Java books on my shelf which probably indicates I ought to get a life.
