On Java In A Nutshell, 5th Edition

Is it just me, or does the tiger on the cover of this book look panicked? Sort of how I looked when I saw this mammoth for the first time today.

We just had a set of them delivered to our lab, and when jcobleigh pulled the books out of the Amazon crate a few minutes ago, it was to a chorus of "oh mys" and widened eyes.

Dimensions: 9.2 x 6.3 x 2.2 inches
Weight: 3.2 pounds

It's basically twice the weight and size of the previous edition (3rd) that I had on my bookshelf.

That's a honkin' big nutshell.


If that's the 'quick reference', I'd hate to see the full-fledged 'how to' book...
