My only problem with this book is some of the code in the book doesn't compile. This is only a minor problem to, as all the code can be downloaded from the books' website, which fixes the problems. That's it though, that is the only problem I've found so far, really good writing style and I'd say the best Java based game developing book on the market. Doesn't just convert c/c++ code either, written for Java programmers with medium to advanced Java knowledge that are new to game programming.
