Java GUI

Recently I read an excellent book called "Java GUI Development" by Vartan Piroumian (ISBN 0-672-31546-7). This book is an exhaustive treatment of the Java GUI - including AWT and Swing. It has a full, large chapter (pp295-360) just for layout managers. From my reading so far, it seems to represent the most authoritive, exhaustive treatment on GUI issues I have found to date.

By way of explaination - I love reading computing books. Even when I "know" a topic very well, I am always on the lookout for books that explain the details in more depth or more clearly than current books. So far, the layout manager is one of those Java topics that has been all but ignored in most textbooks (I have over 30 Java books alone).

This book has simple to complex examples that really clarify the layout manager.
