    Comments about oreilly Java Cookbook, 3rd Edition:

    I'm coming back to java, so recipes and solutions are nice for me to follow. I should get also some more basic learning book. My Learning Java 3rd edition (paper) one is looking way past for me now.
    Java 8 explanation of what's new and what's changed seems to me pretty clear, so far.
