Java Au Naturel
by Dr. William C. Jones, Jr.
Over 100 high school and college instructors across the U.S.A. and around the world are teaching from this textbook. This book focuses on software development with an object-oriented approach. Java is used for the implementation, since it's well suited for learning and doing object-oriented software development. This book does not require any knowledge of programming or any mathematics beyond elementary algebra and (in a few places) a bit of trigonometry.
