The "easy to understand" concept failed me before chapter 1

The 2nd edition of "Heads up Java" casually tells me to go back to to download the J2SE API documentation.

I believe there is an inherent assumption in that instruction which is this -- the download site for that particular documentation should be easy to identify.

But I go to, and there are a million acronyms which I don't understand, and I have no idea where this documentation resides and couldn't identify it if I was looking at it.

the primary focus of the book is to make Java easy to understand. And then, before I get to Chapter 1, I'm lost. I conclude it must be me...

Can you give me some help in emerging from my clueless position, and moving towards the understanding that other people seem to find so natural?
