Summer Reading Club review

Title/Author Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days/Rogers Cadenhead

I read this book to see if it would be helpful for my daughter who’s beginning to learn computer programming and Java. I’m a software engineer and have read many books involving Java but this provides the clearest instructions for her to grasp. Not only does this book explain concepts in a step-wise fashion, but it provides short quizzes and challenge questions at the end of each chapter. I would recommend this to any beginning programmer.

Title/Author Outliers. Malcolm Gladwell

This book is sometimes a required reading for High school students. Author Gladwell nonfiction writing explores many instances that make people more successful than their peers. I found it an easy read but a thought producing book. Can that really be true? An excellent book club choice for all ages.
