2-0 out of 5 stars Not for programmers
I hoped that this book, being a "Technical Introduction", would get me up to speed as quickly as possible on the nuts and bolts of web services. As a programmer I had a real world requirement to build web service client functionality into one of my programs immediately ("yesterday") and bought this book to put me in the picture about the web services framework from a technical point of view.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great introductory book
This is an excellent book. I enjoyed reading it. I especially like the flow of the book. Unlike other books I read, this book initially provides an over view of web services as a business model. This is especially helpful for those, who would like to develop web services and later sell it. This book has good introductory coverage of Service Level Agreements, ways to market web services, and a good number of examples. The book then covers XML, SOAP, WSDL and UDDI. Web services examples using .NET and Java is clean and descriptive. The book covers recent development in web services security, but does not provide any example in Java or .NET code to implement security. This topic is covered in more advanced book on web services. If you are interested to learn about web services and its business advantages, this Deitel book is very good to keep in your collection.
5-0 out of 5 stars Just right
This is an extremely thorough, well-written book that covers web services from the ground up.Not tied to any one company's philosophy or implementation of web services standards, this book approaches the subject at a high level yet full of detail.Unlike most technical books, this books reads like a novel.I give it my highest recommendation for those of you that want to understand the underlying web services standards and framework. ...

So far this has been an excellent book to learn about the CISCO certification process.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just about enough to pass the exam
After reading user reviews here on Amazon, I realized that this book, the 4th edition, was lacking in some areas...most notably, NAT. This deluxe edition though, included the virtual lab which I thought would be important since I do not have actual equipment to practice on.
1-0 out of 5 stars Out Dated book
I used this book for review and am able to pass all the test questions in the cd included. I sat for my CCNA today and it the questions I got where not covered all that well in this book. The test coved Frame relay and OSPF heavly and this book did not cover it as well as need for the exam. In my oppinion you should use a more current released book that covers the new test format and as always use several study books and resources. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad primer, but....
Lammle does an excellent job of explaining complex networking concepts (particularly subnetting) in terms simple enough for someone with no previous exposure to networking to understand.
5-0 out of 5 stars Lamle does it right
The most challenging thing a certification test-prep book faces is the way it invariably will be misused. There is an old saw about using the right tool for the job, which in essence tells us to use the correct planning, strategy, and action to get the result we want. The majority of people purchasing a book like this are planning to take the CCNA exam and want some help preparing. This makes sense, and this is why I myself purchased Lamle's book. While it worked, and I passed with a 901, I couldn't help but wonder how much more difficult it would have been without hands-on experience with the devices, protocols and processes themselves at work. I have not yet met anyone who studied for, and passed, the CCNA test without any prior hands-on network experience.

For those people who are interested in just cranking out quick programs, I wouldn't bother with this book and would instead pick up something on MFC, or heaven forbid, Visual Basic.

For anyone programming windows user interfaces, this is the book you need.It is just the right amount of concepts and Petzold includes a clear, concise programming example for nearly everything he talks about.The examples are written in C and he does not complicate the issue by trying to teach other libraries such as MFC.Just pure C code.Read more

If you no absolutely nothing about Windows Services, I still wouldn't recommend this book.You can find more useful information from one Google search than this entire book contains.Also, the link to the book's code is incorrect.The code is available via another site but is different than the code in the book.My recomendation...keep shopping!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Miss This "Missing Manual"
I have used the iMovie application since March 2000 to create over a hundred hours of edited footage for my video production company. Before reading "iMovie: The Missing Manual, I concluded that I had learned all their was to know about this program.I previously considered it a limited program that was most effective when production time was critical and expectations were relaxed.However, I was astonished to learn of techniques and shortcuts that greatly expanded my knowledge of iMovie and radically refined my approach in it's use.The concise layout and effective index of this manual has kept it within arm's length whenever I launch iMovie.Few computer manuals are "page turners", but if you use iMovie the information that is contained in "iMovie: The Missing Manual" will surely excite and inspire you.The software that is made available is alone worth the purchase price of this excellent manual.

5-0 out of 5 stars A terrific book
I'm not new to the Mac, but am new to iMovie and was struggling with somebasics.I recently purchased Missing Manual and am glad that I did.Wellwritten, complete and easy to read.My iMovie editing productivity hasskyrocketed and would strongly recommend this book

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Computer Program Manual I Have Used!
I bought this book because I wanted to use I-movie to help me put together a short film in short order. It is quite simply the best computer book I have ever purchased. It is a very straightforward, lucid, step by stepexplanation of how to get the most out of this program specifically, anddigital video in general. It seemed like every time a question or would popup he would have a special box on the next page explaining how to solve it.Mr. Pogue appears to have thought of everything and then some. He presentsa number of excellent "work-arounds" for the limitations ofI-Movie and lays them out in step by step fashion. Using this book is likehaving an I-Movie Guru sitting next to you, helping you along. If you useI-Movie, you need this book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars how use cases can lead to aspect oriented coding
Jacobson and Ng present a detailed exposition of what aspect oriented programming means. As implemented in the AspectJ language, an extension to Java for expressly this purpose. They explain that object oriented programming has a conceptual limitation. Indeed, it is good to separate code into components using OO. But in general you have M concerns and N components, where M>N. Sometimes, M>>N. So if you imagine an M x N matrix, then you can easily see how entanglement arises. A given component may have code from multiple concerns. Which makes it harder to implement and maintain.
5-0 out of 5 stars In Absentia: Unfortunate Sign of the Times
No one has reviewed this?? This is a great book. Jacobson describes it as the result of a kind of epiphanal realization that AOP could solve an inherent problem in use case design. This is how the book hooked me: rather than just showing AOP as a series of stunts, or explaining it w/the usual little examples (logging, exceptions, etc.), this book starts w/the strategic implications and then works down to the tactical. The basic premise is that the so called separation of concerns is always followed by a required recomposition of said concerns and that aspects provide a means of recomposing w/out introducing 'leaks' and the like.

5-0 out of 5 stars Changed the Way I Designed My Own Software Development
Learning what this book had to teach was a pivotal point in my software development career... it was the first time I came to an awareness of looking at HOW the design and development process occurred in my job, and really thinking about WHY we did certain things the way we did.My own development methods changed drastically after reading this book, and my own visible changes have had an impact on those that work with me (i.e. it got them thinking as well about how they did their development).ESR's book spent a fair amount of time in the details of some specific software, but those parts came across to me as examples backing up earlier points he had made rather being "I recommend using this software" endorsements.I've learned from ESR's writings that there's almost always an upper-level awareness to be discovered, whether he's explicitly making a point to back up something he's saying, or whether it's something implicit that steers your own thinking towards something he's said.I highly recommend this book to anyone who's been doing software development (especially in a group environment and steered/constrained by that group's processes) for at least a year, perhaps two.If you've been doing this kind of work for more than two years, and never thought deeply at WHY you design your software creations the WAY you do, it's time for you to pick up this book and see what you can glean from it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surpassed my expectations
When I first started reading this book, I expected to hear a considerable amount of Microsoft trashing and everything else that follows from fanatical Microsoft haters. However, what I found was an easy to follow book that illustrates many aspects of Unix programming, explains why they work, and shows examples of all of them.
1-0 out of 5 stars Where is the beef?
I join the other reviewer who complained about the book having no code at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but more like podcasting with a touch of blogging...
This book should be titled differently as the emphasis it has is on podcasting using Apple GarageBand, rather than on blogging using iWeb. Still, this does not result surprising or dissapointing, because the level of depth and quality of the illustrations and instructions provided make it impossible for the reader to miss a beat, leading to great results when using GarageBand to create podcasts. Also, it makes sense to a certain degree, because iWeb is most definitely not the most popular (or recommendable) tool for blogging, even if you are working on a Mac.

3-0 out of 5 stars Intresting mainly to see the differeces among the authors...
This book is an interesting window on the Open Source world. It is a strange planet with strange people. Some crazy idealist like R. Stallman (I like the guy very much), some smart and intelligent person like L. Torvald (he did a very good job with Linux). In between someone that was just in the right place at the right time, but who doesn't deserve so much space and celebrity. I am talking about a person that seems confused as the language he invented: Larry Wall. His contribution does not require further comments.

4-0 out of 5 stars good document - articles a mixed bag (naturally)
This is a good idea on O'Reilly's part to try to document the history and goals of the Open Source movement, which had roots in several college campuses and research labs in the '70s and '80s, and became news in the late '90s with the popularity of Linux, Apache, and the decision of Netscape to open its browser source. The best introductory piece, however, is probably Eric Raymond's "Cathedral and the Bazaar" which is not in this book(O'Reilly publishes it separately, but it's available free on the Web and short enough to be read in one sitting).As for this collection, I liked Robert Young's business case for distributing open source - his story of how Red Hat was launched reminds me of the Compaq tale of "three guys in a restaurant".The Apache article is also quite good, and Linus Torvalds offers a brief but interesting (and characteristically opinionated) article about how Linux evolved technically.There's also a good article discussing the various open source licenses (BSD, GPL, Netscape, etc) and what they do and don't restrict.5-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating read
All the essays are well written, enjoyable, informative and a great read. Anyone interested in open source software, where S/W development might be going and Unix/Linux/GNU software in particular, should read this book. One or two essays showing their age, but still worth every penny. Buy it, read it, then encourage your friends to read it as well. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for both camps
This isn't a typical O'Reilly book, and it's definitely not an "animal" book. I think that's something that's thrown a lot of people for a loop the first time they see this book. That change is good, however, because what O'Reilly has delivered is a book whose contents will stand up much longer and be more useful than most of the books out there on any technical subject, from any publisher. By having various viewpoints in information rich, managable pieces so well organized, the book itself is usable both as a read through from cover to cover and as a reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro or review
If you are a newcomer to C, buy this book.If you are a rusty veteran, like I was -- out of practice with C but wanting to get back in -- buy this book.Start at the beginning, work thru the exercises, and you'll get to a respectable level of sophistication very shortly.Gookin is methodical, thorough, and humorous (without being silly), and covers all the main issues in C including pointers (several good chapters on this one point :-), functions, structures, and linked lists.The examples he gives you to help you thru the coding exercises are clear and easy to follow, and should serve as handy models for you own coding in the future.
4-0 out of 5 stars a tad bit false advertised......
This is a great book and I learned a lot about programming with it. Dan seems to be a good author, and he takes you through it one step at a time.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best book for learning C
If you are thinking of learning C then this is the book.Go and buy it. There are a host of other books on C like the classic K&R, How to program in C [Deitel & Deitel], C for Turbo C++ [Robert Lafore], C Primer Plus [Steven Prata] etc., all these books have their own merits as well as draw backs but Dan Gookin's is the very best.Dan teaches C like no other.If pointers or linked lists scare you to death. Have a look in this book! You will see how simply it is explained an executed. Yes, if you want to learn C BUY THIS BOOK!! Thanks Dan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but read the back cover or description!
To all those that complain that this book doesn't answer all the questions in Stroustrup's book, the hint is in the phrase "C++ Solutions, provides insightful, logical, and easy-to-follow solutions to selected exercises found in The C++ Programming Language". See the word "selected"? Bit of a give away isn't it?!
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent learning tool
Vandervoorde is one of the emerging experts on C++. In this book he guides you through many of the exercises in "The C++ Programming Language". As he does so he fills in many of the gaps, and provides extra insight that you might not gleam just from reading the original book, but what he really does is let you stand by his shoulder as he works out some of the problems.1-0 out of 5 stars A real "cop out", if I ever did see one.
First of all, C++ is a very difficult language to learn, and even moreso to master. It requires years of constant practice and learning to reach near the mountain top, and Stroustrup's book, "The C++ Programming Language" is among the most difficult to read and understand (ESPECIALLY for those just starting out).Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE CCNA Prep book! Just passed with a 913!
I am a Cisco Networking Academy student and I just passed the CCNA 640-607 Exam yesterday. This wasn't the only book that I used to prep for the exam, but this book was instrumental in providing me with the answers for the exam that the other books didn't. Along with this book, I used the Cisco Networking Academy online curriculum, ICND, Ciscopress Router and Switch eSim, Transcender, and Preplogic. Hands-on experience with routers and switches was the key to my success, but I could have easily passed this test by using only the this book. The test was a lot harder than the Transcender CCNA practice test. It's usually the other way around. Anyway, if you get only ONE book for exam prep, get this one. You will not regret it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Routing Protocols
I agree, if you want to learn IP routing, this book will not take you anywhere close. For that you would need "Cisco IOS for IP Routing" by Andrew Colton or Doyle's books. However, Lammle's book would probably be all you need to pass the CCNA test. Unless you're a complete beginner, then you may want to add one or two other fine CCNA books.

4-0 out of 5 stars Complete reference for the exam and to review
I think is a complete reference to pass the Cisco's Exam and reviewing your concepts.Read more

Linux machines serve scores of purposes on networks, but their very integration with networked environments means they're constantly exposed to attack. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction
My comment goes out to the first (very old now) edition, 1999. This was the first book I've read about linux security and it's very well written, well organized and cover most importat topics about system security and internet security as well.

2-0 out of 5 stars Who is this book for?
I'll start off by saying that I am CISSP, CCSP and SANS GSEC certified. I have read a couple of the Maximum Security series books and I'm constantly disappointed. First off the book is about 5 times too long for a novice that is curious about the subject and under informative for a professional. It also seems to cover some "neeto" programs you can use to secure your system. For the amount of pages I thought it would at least delve into some kernel hacking, buffer overflow/underrun protection. The author seems to love to give scare tactic examples of attacks that happened years before the book was published. If someone is reading this book they most likely understand the threat. I don't need to the police to tell me about murders that have gone on in Baltimore to convince me to put locks on my doors. This kind of off subject garbage makes this book even heavier, and not from an information stand point. Published in 2001 it seem that is was out of date then as well. It covers, for the lack of better description, low level hacker tools in a majority of descriptions of tools. For example the "Sniffer" chapter mentions nothing about dsniff a very popular and powerful sniffing utility. I would not recommend this book to a beginner as there is way too much garbage taking you through the installation of basic pieces of software. Never mentioning some different options maybe you should be selecting during the install. There is no need to cut and paste the contents of the INSTALL file from Tripwire, most of the guides for installing are word for word from the programs own install and readme files. I would not recommend this to a professional as well as it does not go into great enough detail about anything unless you don't want to read man files and would rather have it in the form of a 13lbs book. My guess is this book was thrown together poorly with haste and by someone that has little to no experience in network security let alone security on ONE system. To sum this review up, there is nothing in this book that isn't already on google.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE FOR ANY LINUX USER!!
This is probably not just the best linux book I have ever purchased but one of the best computer books I've purchased period.The book explains things clear and to the point with real examples and many sites you can check out for further information.I've learned a great detail about network security and linux in journal.Thank you Anonymous. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Book cover torn apart
The book was probably "good as new" as they claimed until it was violently shoved into the package. The cover was almost torn apart, barely in one piece.

2-0 out of 5 stars A tad bit disappointing
I bought this book being completely convinced that it was a complete reference on the basic XML technologies along with an introduction to XML, XML's history and development and so on. It shows up to my disappointment, that the book is largely influenced by a number of corporations using XML to make money, and is therefore *not* focussed very much on the actual technologies.
5-0 out of 5 stars The One source you need to answer any question about XML
It took Charles Goldfarb, Paul Prescod and many others, sixty-seven chapters to explain all there is to know about XML and XML related technology.This book must be the most complete reference book when it comes to XML: any thing from history of XML in Chapter 1 to VoiceXML in Chapter 46 and everything in between.This book is filled, and each chapter is appropriately marked with, Introductory Discussions, Application Discussions, Tool Discussions, Case Studies and Friendly Tutorials.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book scores high
The subject of Object-Oriented Analysis and Design is vast. This book can be thought of as a distilled dispenser of Unified Modeling Language (UML).I interviewed Martin Fowler for an article in CoDe Magazine. Mr. Fowler's credentials are impressive:A regular speaker at object technology conferences including OOPSLA, Software Development, and ECOOP.Fowler is also the author of the Analysis Patterns, Refactoring, and Planning Extreme Programming.In this book, Fowler presents a brief overview of UML and does it quite well.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Definitive Practical Guide
After Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh, Stephen Mellor and GOF, Martin Fowler is pretty much one of the fore-fathers of Object Oriented design and analysis. He is one of the initial torch bearers of the discipline we know as refactoring. Martin Fowler is the author of several renowned books on analysis and design namely "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture", "Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code", "Planning Extreme Programming" and "Analysis Patterns: Reusable Object Models"
