            I initially got the book in the hopes that it would be more informative than I found it to be. It is helpful in some things but very general overall.

              Concise and simple introduction into Java 1.7. Madhusudhan goes over new features in Java 1.7 and whenever possible shows how it was done in past and how can it be achieved using 1.7.

              It will take you approx. 10-20 minutes to read and you will get up nice overview of what to expect in Java 1.7.

                Comments about oreilly What's New in Java 7?:

                Loved it! It didn't take more than 20-30 mins and I really enjoyed reading it. Simple and a good primer overview. Especially the examples were very good.

                It was so light yet informative that I could finsh it while having my lunch.

                Would recommend to people who are busy and would just first like to get a quick glimpse of some key enhancements in java 7 - without getting into details.
