Certainly there are many many ways out there on how to learn a programming language. But did you ever hear about learning a new language by hearing (ie. reading) a camp fire story? No? Sure you didn’t!
The guys of JavaRanch.com try to accomplish just that:
Grab your marshmallows and a stick and gather ’round the campfire for some Java stories. The Ranch writers won’t be winnin’ any literary prizes, that’s fer sure. But ya still might learn a thing or two.

So hop on your horse, ride on over to the ranch and give it a read @
