Page 65, towards the bottom.
Pleased to see the Arrays class mentioned early; I hope the API link and the excerpt encourage readers to look at the API for themselves. Probably better to have a more recent version than Java7 mentioned, though.
Don't like the term “static class”. I would call it a utility class, say that all its members are static and called by dot notation on the class name: Arrays.sort(myArray);

I hope I am not annoying you with the many comments; I intend them to improve the book.
