    Can't help with any dutch books. As for Java books in English, there are
    3 excellent books for beginners. Two I have read, one I just picked up as
    an excellent reference. First, if you're completely new to Java, try "Teach
    Yourself Java 2 Platform in 21 days" by Lemay and Cadenhead. Java has been
    a fairly tough language for me to learn, and I've learned several including
    Powerbuilder. This is a well paced book with excellent editing and examples.
    If you are coming from a more technical background, pickup Bruce Eckel's
    "Thinking in Java". You can download a copy for free from www.bruceeckel.com.
    He previously wrote an award winning book on C++, "Thinking in Java" has
    won several major awards. A caution: the author provided several comparisons
    to C++ which caused me to pick the book up and put it down...it was just
    too hard for me. After I read "Teach Yourself..." and did the exercizes,
    then I read Mr. Eckel's book and found it to be superb. Finally, do yourself
    a favor and look at "The Java Developers Almanac" by Patrick Chan. You'll
    find it an invaluable reference, perhaps the best $20 you'll ever spend.
