    I thought it was suggested at looking at a different programming language, something different from Java, of which there are 1000's of already experienced developers out there?

    Sorry to say this but you really are coming in to Java at the wrong time, there are already far too many experienced Java devs out there who would run rings around you, far better to get in to something newer in my opinion.

    I guess I would stick to Java for 2-3 of projects...then I would take up other newer languages.. So that takes me to the original question...pls Suggest some good book in Java or is studying from a book is old fashioned and google is the way forward...

    I don't think there are many developers on this website so you may struggle to get recommendations.. just go on Amazon type in Java Book and read reviews people who have purchased the book have left on the site.. or use Google type in Java book for beginners (or something along those lines). Maybe join a developers forum also.

    Maybe consider these, I've only read the Scala one.

    As others have mentioned in their links, its important to 'just build stuff' so ultimately your projects and interests should determine what you're doing.

    If youre interested in building web apps, you're going to need a lot more resources. This book only covers core Java.

    I've already mentioned Pluralsight, you could do a lot worse than starting there.

    I think you're probably also going to want a good grounding in linux as well.
