Effective Java 3rd Edition
- Addison-Wesley Professional; 3rd edition
This Jolt Award-winning classic hasn't been updated since 2008 because of how much the Java programming environment has evolved. New features and functions were added in Java 7 and Java 8, such as the forEach() method in the Iterable interface, default and static methods in interfaces, functional interfaces, lambda expressions, the Java Stream API for bulk data operations on collections, the Java Time API, improvements to the Collection API, Concurrency API, and Java IO.

This should be in every Java programmer's tool box
This is an excellent book that focuses on the best ways to use Java. It bridges the gap between the language reference manuals and practical design and implementation.
Steve French wrote a review about Effective Java 3rd Edition Great java book. Recommend to all java devs.
Used this as source material in a professional programmers' book club. It's very dense, but that's engineering for ya. Great examples and written in the classic opinionated programmer style. Overall, his positions are well argued and concise
