1-0 out of 5 stars Not a complimentary book to E-business and E-commerce
I bought this text thinking it would compliment the E-business and E-commerce How to Program text (it was recommended that way).However, it is really just a reconstituted version of the other text, which also falls short of its advertised use.Don't waste your money!

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid XML Book
I read some of the other reviewer's comments on the book and I agree with some and disagree with others. In comparison to other popular XML books it's not perfect but it's solid. If you are like me, a beginning XML programmer then you need to learn XML hands on and the book gives just that. Giving you examples and problems to apply what you just read is the best way to learn and thats what this book does. I read the "XML by Example" by Marchal and although that was a solid book also, it doesnt give you the material or examples for YOU to practice. Marchal doesnt offer the code samples for download either. One reviewer said that in order to complete this book's self review exercises you have to use outside sources. This is true but think about it...what better way to learn than by being challenged?
2-0 out of 5 stars Not suitable for self-teaching, barely good for classroom

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Second VB Book
I have been through many VB books including expensive college texts.I immediately found this to be the best one.I picked it up at a Borders (oops...) because I was sick of ordering books online and not liking them when I finally got them in the mail.After I read the first chapter in the book store, I didn't want to wait to get started so I paid the $40.
1-0 out of 5 stars Jesse Liberty Fails to Update the Errata
After spending many hours trying to figure why the sample code didn't work, I found the answer buried on Jesse Liberty's message board.A fellow reader points out an error on Jan 21 and as of June 26 Jesse has yet to update his errata.Most tech books have a decent size errata and that is to be expected, but for an author to fail in his responsibility at the cost of many collective hours by his readers is extremely inconsiderate.This book is in my trash can at the moment.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a complete transition to VB.Net
I absolutely love Jesse's books and articles. However, this book does not have a page dedicated to ADO.Net nor does Jesse talk about the debugging methods of VS 2005.

The weighty C# For Programmers by Harvey M. Dietel and Paul J. Dietel appears in its updated second edition to provide a powerful and comprehensive guide - over 1,300 pages worth - for any programming in C#. You must be a programmer with a solid background in C++, Java, or other high-level languages: this handbook applies the Dietel signature live-code approach to teaching programming and explores the C# language and its new options. Use it to understand the Dietels' approach to object-oriented programming, then build next-generation windows and web applications. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars nice book to start c# and writing code for forms
I wanted to do some windows programming in C#, bougt a lot of books but found this the only one that really helped.

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Introduction to C#, WinForms. and .net 2.0
This is hands down the most clearly-written explanation of programing windows forms using C# that I have read or seen on the market.Petzold has an easy and engaging writing style.He takes the time to explain the WHAT and the WHY of what you are doing.This is a great book for someone just sitting down to Visual Studio 2005 to begin learning C# programming.His examples and walkthroughs produce useful and functioning examples of the most common aspects of Win Form programming.My only complaint is that he can only dedicate a chapter to some pretty key concepts, like data-binding.My interest is piqued, and then the chapter ends and we move on to new concepts.This is a small complaint because what he does provide is complete and enlightening.It provides a solid foundation to build off of create your own experiments.
5-0 out of 5 stars Uses the New .NET 2.0 Enhancements for a Quick Start
The Microsoft .NET program continues to expand with each release of Windows. In the .NET Framework 2.0, introduced in the fall of 2005 significant enhancements were made. These enable the programmer to implement Windows applications that are both powerful and sharp looking with considerably less effort than before. This book is somewhat of a quick introduction to writing such applications taking advantage of the new features.

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading tutorial on UML 2.0
I picked up this book as a way to familiarize myself with the changes to UML in UML 2.0, which are extensive, as I found the OMG specification nearly impenetrable. I had liked the first edition, though I too felt Fowler's Distilled was a much better intro to give to students and engineers learning UML for the first time. This edition, though, does not meet expectations. The typos and bad references throughout are bad enough. Join that with a complete lack of real-world design examples, poor organization, and poor design.Why a chapter on State Machines and a separate chapter on State Diagrams that repeats a lot of the earlier chapter? The blue cross references make it clear that the book is spaghetti design at its worst. Check out the table of contents, you won't know where to look for your favorite diagrams; check out the index, and you won't be able to find the definition of the concept you just can't quite remember. The glossary is useful, as the UML 2.0 spec dispensed with a glossary, making it even more impenetrable. On the other hand, the authors make no attempt to call out the new UML 2.0 features, which would have made my day. What I find most unforgivable, though, is the authors' inability to present the new UML as it really is: the book is seriously misleading in many ways for learning UML 2.0. My biggest peeve is the way they treat the new and highly useful composite structure diagrams. In the list of diagrams, they don't even mention it, calling it by the name of a different diagram, the "Component Diagram", which they feel is the same thing. They then separate the discussion of composite classes and components, making it seem as though they're totally unrelated. They fail to mention quite a few of the new UML features (the X navigation adornments that make non-navigability explicit, for example, which is critical to code generation, or the fact that you can have multiple stereotypes associated with model elements. In their defense, the UML standard isn't very clear on these diagram types, but this is a practical tutorial that should take practice into account. There are constant references to the Reference Guide for more advanced features; these are mostly the UML 2.0 features that they didn't feel were important enough to include in the comprehensive tutorial. The appendix on UML notation simply ignores many UML 2.0 notations. I can't help but feel shortchanged.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hi Mr. Book Disposal
Start reading Chapter 1 of this book for even just the first few pages, and for various topics, it will say to go to future Chapters.If you take a look at those future chapters, there will be notes on the side telling you to go back to Chapter 1 or to other chapters.You can run into infinite loops or dead ends not really picking up anything.It is possible to maybe find what you were looking for, or find that the explanation for it is just not sufficient.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, comprehensive coverage...
It still somewhat amazes me that Visual Basic has stood the test of time like it has.It keeps getting updates and facelifts, and continues to "play well" in today's environment.If you need a comprehensive guide to the language and the programming environment, I think you would be well-served by the book Visual Basic 2005 for Programmers (2nd Edition) by Paul J. Deitel and Harvey M. Deitel.Not much seems to be missing, and there are a few features that would cause me to highly recommend it to the Visual Basic crowd...

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential reference for all projects
Like all dynamic languages, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is growing more complex over time. While it is true that for most developers, this means that you will regularly use a smaller percentage of the language, the actual percentage will vary from person to person and from day to day. Therefore, no abridged UML manual could possibly be adequate. Written by the three creators of the UML, this manual is clearly definitive and one that all developers should have at extended arms reach. Designed to cover the changes in the recently released UML 2.0, which were significant, a CD with the full text in Adobe PDF form with hotlinks to the definitions of the key terms is also included.
5-0 out of 5 stars Well written and organized
This isn't something that I would sit down and read just for fun, but it is well written and organized, which makes it easy to use. The bulk of the book is in the dictionary of terms which is organized alphabetically. Each one is described using both a text definition and a notational graphic, and often an example. There is a section on the different types of views at the front of the book.

This is not the first user manual, by David Pogue, that I have purchased. I rely on these publications to not only give me the basics, but also a more advanced understanding of new and unfamiliar Mac operating systems. Get to know Panther with the help of David Pogue!

Excellent help so far. Our school IT administrator was so impressed he is ordering a copy for the staff. I never realised you could continue to burn info, images etc onto an ordinary cd! The Expose feature pointed out in this book is brilliant for quick access to school reports. I am not very familiar with the MacIntosh computers but this book is going to be a great source of info for OSX.

I'm becoming bilingual--I'm learning to speak Apple as well as Windows. I just got a new iMac G5. Apple basically tells you to learn the system by pushing all the buttons to see what they do. Yeah, right. I also have the XP Missing Manual. This is a good series, a lot better than the Dummie series, if you really are a dummie. The organization is good and there is a lot of information, starting with the basics and going from there. ... Read more

Imagine, for a moment, a guy. This guy, about 40 years old, has workedall of his life in a job that doesn't require much knowledge of computers,certainly not of how to write software. Now, imagine that our guy decides tochange career paths and learn computer programming. He goes and buys a bookabout a programming language, perhaps one that promotes itself as elementary.The book presents our hapless guy with recipes that he can follow, it's true,but mostly it confuses him with talk of APIs, linked lists, hashes, and a messof other stuff that he doesn't understand, really.

The other reviewers here that reference their 13 year olds enjoying this book are absolutely right. This book is for 13 year olds. As a 25 year old trying to wrap his mind around programming, it leaves much to be desired.

A good book does not need to be complex. This one does a great job. You could read this book during one hour and learn more than in one semester of COS111. It is so simple.

5-0 out of 5 stars There is no better book for new mac users
This is a must-have book for all new Mac users and not only! Don`t waist your time by figuring out everything by yourself or calling up your friend everytime you have a problem - this book will solve most of them and even more. David Pogue is a great, funny writer who helps you make your life easier and love your computer even more !

5-0 out of 5 stars A Common-Sense Book NOT Written for Dummies
David Pogue has a genius for making the seemingly-complex simple enough for the average person to understand. This is the perfect gift for a writer writing about the Macintosh system; once you get over your intimidation about computers by following Pogue's straightforward and sometimes humorous examples, the user-friendliness of the Mac makes itself obvious, and you're on your way. An excellent, useful book for beginner and seasoned user alike!

5-0 out of 5 stars Well written, funny, and informative
I read this book a few years ago when I bought a used Mac Plus at a garage sale. Mr. Pogue put me on track with my old computer in a very short time. After a few few months, my relatives and friends were calling me for advice. In many cases I was able to help using what I learned in this book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Of Syntax && Semantics....
The Deitel's give you - the inclined reader either entering into or creating within the programming world - a framework upon which to rectify your programming prognostics.Programming is a fine art, delicate though demanding, and one not readily dealt with by the lazy or pseudo-informed.Take my specific background for instance.A college-level course in Problem Solving with C; essentially an intermediate electrical engineering course teaching the ropes of the C language in addition to hand-coding using the terminal, in a Linux environment.This course offered no options; i.e. the compiler was gcc (can't remember the version, maybe 3.0 or so), the editor was Emacs (wonderful environment, having all the essential tools and debugging features).However, it was a grand experience in that it was learned how programming can only truly be ascertained via actually sitting down, hammering out hundreds of lines of code (thousands in one assignment), and then wracking the brain by having to debug stingy, pesky, occassionaly habitual tid-bits of coding error.Emacs is a joy since it displays run-time errors and their corresponding line(s) in the program itself.However, one can frequently expect to encounter, or have coded, a buggy piece of code on line, let's say, 268; meanwhile, albeit this is the line the compiler has registered or flagged for error, the actual bug may lie all the way up in line 250, or 100, or perhaps even a silly misused or unused constant declaration.After runnig the gauntlet of beginning trials regarding programming - in any language - it is safe to say that you should be fairly confident in your abilities, and view programming as a creative but cautious - still extremely tedious requisites - process and endeavor. 1-0 out of 5 stars THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES
Why so many CS departments seemingly choose this book is beyond me.After taking an introductory computer science course I'm convinced that I could write a much better tutorial.

This is the best technical book i have ever read. The reason is it actually has some meat to it. Definatly the best visual basic book out there.
4-0 out of 5 stars How To Program VB6
This book is written well and logical, it has many items other books lack.This book is a first year comp sci book and that is why it does not have all the answers in the back; read the intro people. Comparing this to other titles I have used, this one fits my needs very well, easy to read, follow, and understand. You must put an effort into the reading to get the best out of it.If you do not work at it, its true, you will think this book is difficult.Deitel & Deital books fill my programming library now, don't waste money on other books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very valuable to the serious student
This is not a book with big pictures and lots of redundant information: it's packed with valuable information, extremely well structured and geared towards the needs of the beginner as well as the more advanced student. Each chapter is preceded by an introduction to the respective topic followed by programming projects exemplifying the use of commands, procedures, data types, etc. It is rounded off by concise recap of the material covered. All programming examples are supplied on the accompanying CD ROM which also includes - lo and behold! - a MS VISUAL BASIC 6.0 Working Model Edition as a FREEBIE. So you do not even have to have your own Visual Basic Programming environment in order to do all the exercises and try out the examples given in the book. Algorithms and theoretical background are supplied where necessary and just add to the fun of learning. A wealth of good tips is summarized for each chapter under the headings of "Common Programming Errors", "Good Programming Practices", "Software Engineering Observations" and "Testing and Debugging". The practical hands-on approach to programming of the book is topped off by self-review exercises at the end of each of the 21 chapters for which solutions are supplied and discussed adequately to make them a true learning experience. More challenging exercises are offered to the more ambitious student. This is one of the most instructive and comprehensive books on Visual Basic I have ever had a chance tolay my hand upon. Highly recommendable! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have for Professional VB/VBA Programmer
This was just what I needed to develop a special VBA program with Access. The Win32 API's let you get a little closer to the Window operating system than most standard languages.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have book
After buying many useless books on the VB API programming I bought this one after I read the reviews, and it is the ultimate reference ever.

Editorial Review

The Visual QuickStart Guide series from Peachpit Press is known forboiling topics down to the essentials, and presenting them in an engaging andefficient way, to get the reader up to speed quickly. In applying this model toXML, author Elizabeth Castro had her work cut out for her.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Editor needed
Admittedly, I'm only up to the second chapter in this book, but it's clear that Castro needed a better editor.She relies on a frustrating "Type this, then we'll come back to it later" approach (example: naming your DTD, then finding out four pages later HOW to apply that information).Disappointing as her XHTML + CSS and Flash MX books were much tighter in execution.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good overall XML review, but it has gaps
This book does cram a whole lot of information into a tiny space.I will say that, if you are interested in getting started with XML, the book tries to include all the "pieces" you need - like not just XML code, but DTDs and XSLT, etc.

Editorial Review

A great book for beginning programmers who want to learn Perl. Filled with concrete examples and, yes, by using this book you will be able to write good Perl code on your own in 21 days. But no perlson is an island, and there is no single book that covers Perl completely, so we recommend that you also get Programming Perl, which is better at providing the language specifications, and, in fact, was written by the author of Perl. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book - clear and easy to read
I find myself using this book as a refernce almost every day.It is well written and easy to follow.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars I haven't even finished the book and I am already feeling like a perl programmer
I bought this book after trying to learn Perl through another book (Perl for Bioinformatics). This book is definitely a better introduction to Perl than any other book I've seen. It is clear and concise enough and although it might be hard to finish it in 21 days, you can start coding your own scripts much before the end of the book. I am still on chapter 11 and I can program most of what I need with it (i.e parsers and simple bioinformatics applications). I recognize that there are a few typos on the book but if even Knuth's Art of Computer Programming have them why shouldn't Lemay's Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days do the same?
4-0 out of 5 stars Above Average Introduction
Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days by Laura Lemay is sufficient for the beginner wanting to learn Perl, be it on Windows or a UNIX-based operating system. If Perl is your first programming language, then this book is a fairly good book to choose as a starting point. It teaches the basics of programming in Perl and moves quickly from that point onward.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent how to book.
What can I say?I was interested in writing a blog.I did not know how to do it.I found this book on Amazon.I ordered it.I read and studied it.And I now have my own blog.Thank you Elizabeth Castro.You are the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars All you need to know to blog using Blogger
I have been writing on my blog using Blogger since 2002, so I am very familiar with almost all the options it provides you with to get your word out there in the blogosphere. Yet, I was able to pick up numerous new things when I read this book by Elizabeth Castro. It goes from the very basics that you'd need in order to get off the ground, all the way to incorporating audio into your blog, blogging via e-mail/telephone, customizing your blog, hosting it yourself and much, much more. It's incredible the amount of useful information that the author was able to pack in a little over 100 pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!!
I'm enjoying this book very, very much!!!
5-0 out of 5 stars ESR Helps the Intermediate Software Developer Understand His Environment
This is my second experience with ESR's books, and I've been very pleased with both of them.Looking at software development from his "anthropologist" perspective, has proven extremely helpful in better understanding my experiences in the industry, and especially in seeing things about people and processes that I didn't realize were there until he'd pointed them out.I don't think this would have made much sense to me if I was new to the software development environment, but now that I've been in it for several years and experienced different people and different groups with their own different processes, ESR's conceptual insights have helped me evaluate my own way of working and thinking.I highly recommend this book to anyone who's been in software development for at least three years... I think your own experience is very important to have behind you when reading ESR's books.This kind of reading led me to the Fred Brook classic "The Mythical Man-Month", which I think is still full of applicable insights (a whopping 30 years after it was first published).

4-0 out of 5 stars For those who question why open source makes sense
Eric Raymond presents a coherent and well-supported case that explains why open source makes commercial sense. Putting aside the "religious" fervor of some of his arguments, the logic on why the open source movement can spawn successful businesses is irrefutable. Read it and you will understand why traditional (proprietary) software business models have become a dying breed. I would rate the book a "5" but for some parts where the text becomes somewhat convoluted and repetitive. Overall, a must-read for anyone involved in software development. ... Read more
