    oh, forgot to mention the book "Java - The Complete Reference" by Herbert Schildt
    I really love this book. although the book is large and has more than 1000 pages, but it contains all the necessary information about java and is not even so difficult to read

    Besides the Clean Code book, what are the value of each of those books? Asking as a developer who hasn't read a published book in some time.

    Opinion - anything labeled a "definitive" usually isn't. Anything "complete" is ... for about 10 minutes after it's come off the press, but certainly isn't by the time you get it home. Javascript has no good parts. "for dummies" or "21 days" books should only be available from libraries as you'll never use them again.

    Java - The Complete Reference. There are many editions of this, so make sure you get the newest one or at least one that is applicable for the version of Java you are targeting.
