Need a book for an employee who is already familiar with programming, but in java does not know anything. Those. The book is essentially needed for learning from scratch, but I want it to have less water, to focus on syntax and java chips, and not on already known definitions and five chapters on what a compiler is and how to install it.
The bottom line is that a person must master java for programming under the desktop, and then smoothly flow into android programming. So if you can immediately advise a chain of books for the implementation of this path, then we will be grateful. It is desirable, of course, books in Russian, but nevertheless, we will listen to all the options.
