5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have
If you are looking into Eclipse plugins programming, this is the book. It not only teaches you the basics but also guides you to the best pratices on Eclipse development, with test driven philosophy. Needless to say, it also covers design patterns used by Eclipse.

3-0 out of 5 stars Hands on tour through Eclipse 2!!! Plugin Development
This book takes you through a tour on plugin development. The main disadvantage of this book is that it is for Version 2 and not Version 3 of Eclipse. Yes you can somehow manage to translate and find your way around. Anyhow this is quite annoying not always successful and maybe one wants to learn more about the special advertised feature of Eclipse 3: rich client platforms. A topic inherently connected to plugin development. Please give us a new version of this book.

Editorial Review

Garfinkel and Spafford, longtime Net veterans, overturn a lot of misconceptions about online security in a commonsense book that is easily accessible to even nontechnical readers. They make it clear that any commercial Web site requires careful attention to security­-even if the site doesn't carry any sensitive information. Furthermore, the authors show that there's a lot more to security than merely encrypting transmissions. Their goal is to lay the foundation for securing the three parts of a system: the Web server and its data; the information that travels between server and user; and the user's own computer and the information stored there.Read more

I spent quite a bit of time going through this book. It's not a bad book. Very comprehensive and thorough, and generally a pretty well balanced point of view. It acknowledges security is a trade off, and looks at many different options.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Too slowand long-winded
First, the good things.This is a nicely produced books.I say1-0 out of 5 stars The Deitels know their stuff, but can't communicate.
I am a C++ programmer, and my wife is using this book for a C++ class. I am constantly amazed at the ideas she gets from this book until I read Deitels' bizarre explanations. Also, the exercises are ambiguous, so the course instructor sometimes interprets the requirements differently. The CD contains the exact text of the book, plus audio. Part of the text is presented in sequence, other parts you see in a popup window only if you happen to click on a busy-bee icon. The only use I see for the CD is the search function, which would help to deal with the disorganized presentation of the material. Unfortunately the search returns nothing, or a list of unrelated items. You need to copy the CD to the hard drive to speed up access. The free Visual C++ compiler is nice, but don't run multiple copies to get multiple editors, as you can destroy your source file. Check out Eckel, Lippman, Meyers, Stroustrup.

Editorial Review

If you're concerned about the security of personal information on your computer--or in your e-mail--get PGP using this book. Garfinkel's guide to PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) encryption software is a comprehensive guide to secure encryption for everyone and anyone. So much so that even Phil Zimmerman, who created PGP, said he learned new things from this book. But more than that, it takes you behind the scenes into the fascinating history and workings of the great intellectual adventure story of cryptography. This book is a fascinating read as well as a top-notch guide, and is needed now more than ever. ... Read more

My favorite tutorial books for software are the Hands On Training and the Classroom In A Book series. And, if forced to choose one series or the other, I'd choose H O T.5-0 out of 5 stars Deep ImageReady
The most comprehensive tutorial you're likely to find covering PhotoShop's "little web sister", leave it to Lynda.com to come up with THE ImageReady book. Don't let the title mislead you, especially if you're already a long-time P-Shop veteran. The information contained in these pages, accompanied by outstanding tutorials and full color illustrations, is NOT a rehash of stuff you already know; it is a means of making the transition from traditional publishing to creating full-blown web pages with minimal compromise.5-0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Best!
This is by far the best and most informative and detailed book of its kind. It covers every aspect of "everything you ever wanted to know about" rollovers and rollover animated menus! It does not leave you 'missing something' or saying: 'yes, but it really doesn't cover...' - It covers everything! The accompanying CD is excellent! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Book is great but CD has a problem
The book is well written in clear language and the example scripts are written in a special font making it easy to understand. I just cannot get the CD containing the compiler to work and it's vital to the lessons.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good for learning the core language but not much else
This book is not bad if you are mostly interested in learning the basics of the language but without the few "bonus" chapters it has at the end the Linux content is close to zero. In the standard part of the book the only thing about Linux that is mentioned is how to compile using GCC, which isn't even strictly Linux because it can also run on Windows.
2-0 out of 5 stars Poor.. Very poor
This book is full of mistakes. It also begins by teaching you to program one way, and then tells you that this is wrong. I picked up this book as a refresher, because I have not done any C++ or UNIX in 10 years, but even I could pick out the mistakes in the book. It does not explain the important aspects of C++ very well, skipping over most things with just a cursory description of what is going on. Do not get this book.. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book
Someone here said they liked Windows Xp Complete a lot, so I looked at that, and bought it, too.I have several computer books I consider "Golden".Well written, complete, easy to read and understand, and, most importantly, written by someone who is clearly a "sage" in the field.This is one of those books.I laugh when a reviewer expects EVERYTHING out of one book - that's why I got "WinXP Complete" too.This one goes deep into the guts of Windows where it counts.If you need complete knowlege of aspects - Networking, for example, then, of course you need a Networking book.Mr. Minasi is quite thorough where it counts, though - running Windows Pro with assurance and authority.

5-0 out of 5 stars Readable and Detailed
Mark Minasi is a great writer, with the ability to take a complex subject, like Windows XP, and make it fairly readable. This book is typical of the "Mastering" series, however, and is not intended for light weights. If you are a home or private user, you may be better served with something akin to the "Windows for Dummies" variety. I'm not trying to be condescending, just realistic. This book is highly detailed and goes well beyond the average users needs. However, the first 89 pages of this book present a color plated introduction to using XP, which I found very helpful and better than most related products on the market. The first 89 pages alone are worth the price of this book for most of us. As an administrator, this book will also serve you well with its detailed explanations, extensive graphics and screen shots, and Mark's interpretation of Microsoft's technical manuals.5-0 out of 5 stars Best organized, clearest, most readable reference available

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Win Admins wanting to learn Linux
This was one of the first books I picked up when I decided to take the plunge into Linux.Being an MCSE and Windows administrator, I drastically improved my understanding of how Linux is similar, and differs from Windows.If you're a Windows guy or gal who wants to make sense of Linux, I highly recommend you pick up this book!

Say what you like about the farmer and the cowman, but the Windows user and the Macintosh jockey likely will never enjoy much more than a grudging coexistence. That's why it can be so traumatic when a job or other tragic circumstance requires a devotee of one environment to switch to the other. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars doesn't cover OSX
I bought this to recommend to friends who are shifting to Mac. While it has lots of good and still relevant information, it was written before OSX so many things are changed. Despite that, t's handy for those who are familiar with Windows to find the equivalents in the Mac.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still Useful!
If you are learning the Mac or Windows OS as a second language then this book is the best investment you could make.Terms are translated between the two environments by quick, simple look-up in a translation dictionary.More important, the translations are actually useful.The concepts are translated, not just the words.Look up a term and you get an explanation of the equivalent idea and jargon, even if the terms have no exact match.This is the book to have in your hands while you talk to foreign tech support. I've purchased a couple of copies of this book each year since it came out, mainly because other people borrow mine and then beg to keep it.I was buying another couple of copies today in Jan 2003 (one for me, one for my new tech support person) and I realized that there are very few computer reference books that are still so useful 4 years after publication.This is one computer reference book that will get dog-eared.

4-0 out of 5 stars Only book of its kind .. .found it invaluable!!
As a 15 year PC user & tech support person, I am struggling to learnthe MAC environment.Using this guide made my life much simpler, and Ihave personally recommended it to several users here in our company who aregoing PC->MAC and MAC->PC.If you've ever tried to learn a"foreign language" and used a translating dictionary ... you'llimmediately know how to use this book.This is one tech book that won'tsit on your bookshelf collecting dust! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars All You Need To Know And More.
Having been recommended by a Tutor on a recent course in the States, I bit the bullet and ordered myself a copy.This book gives all that it promises.The well written text treats you like an Adult whilst not forgetting that we are not all fully A+ Certified.It has already gotten me out of a few jams and I would fully recommend it to anyone else. For anyone from the UK reading this review, the language does not need an American Dictionary to read so it's great for both sides of the Pond.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for a student...
I bought this book to use in my Computer Hardware class in college. It helped to elevate my knowledge of computers and I found it to be a useful tool for reference.This book is a good place to start if wanting to learn about computer hardware.

3-0 out of 5 stars Many errors - disappointing
Minasi's earlier editions were good (and hardcover - what happened to that?).This one was apparently rushed out without any proofreading just to keep up with the Joneses (Mueller).There are so many errors in the first two chapters, it's unbelievable... Maybe the rest of the book actually got re-written and proofed, but the first part is very disappointing and makes me unlikely to grab this volume when I need an accurate answer.

Editorial Review

This Dummies guide is designed for beginners who want to learn the core features in Photoshop 5 for Windows in a short amount of time. You start off with an overview of the two aspects of the package--painting images and editing images--and learn what's new in this version. The author explains how to navigate the interface using zooming, guides, and grids. In the second part of the book, he discusses image size, resolution, pixels, color, file formats, and file-saving and -printing issues. The third part of the book focuses on painting, photo retouching, and undoing your work--using the eraser and History palette, for example. In the fourth part, you really start messing with pixels by learning the basic selection tools, such as lasso and rectangle selections, and the more advanced ones, such as adding to and subtracting from a selection, extending a magic wand selection, and transforming selections and paths. You also apply color and gradients to selections. Finally, in the fifth part, you work with layers, type, filters, and advanced color-correction tools, such as contrast and brightness.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars An Uneven Book
As a newcomer to Adobe PhotoShop, I had high hopes for this book. It is of some limited usefulness but ufortunately it is a very uneven book. 5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book
i went through it with my term project images and got an A Simple to understand and basically just excellent. If your the kind who like to read through the entire manual first to get a rough idea of what photoshop is about, this is perfect. The humour was nice to have, but get slightly out of hand at times. But hey! it is a good book! ... Read more
