For future developers: best books on BlackBerry development

Hey. Which book on advanced (also one for intro) would the experienced posters on the forum recommend for BB development? Just found some on Amazon which I never saw in searches before. Good explanations, lots of examples. If it needs it maybe the men could consider doing one!

Re: For future developers: best books on BlackBerry development

Well, my boss make sure to buy all the blackbery development books available and I like these ones:


- Beginning BlackBerry Development by Anthony Rizk - excellent if you are new to blackbery development

- BlackBerry development Fundamentals by John Wargo  - If you want to learn what happens behind the scene, not much code but great for conceptual definitions

- Advanced BlackBerry Development by Chris King - As the name goes Advanced..! 

-  Learn BlackBerry Games Development By Carol Hamer And Andrew Davison - Although this book focus in game development you can find invaluable tips and tricks here.

- BlackBerry Java Application Development by Bill Foust - Great introduction and intermediate level
