2-0 out of 5 stars grammar-based approach can't get off the ground
It seems like most of the people writing reviews for this book already know databases to some degree. I didn't, so I'd like to share my experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wish all beginner books were like this
This book is easy to read, easy to follow and has practice problems at the end of every chapter with the answers in the back. What more could one ask for?
4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, very simple, very direct
I bought "Learning SQL" in order to begin to prepare myself for the Microsoft Certification Exam for SQL Server 2005. I had some prior knowledge of SQL, but almost exclusively in writing SELECT statements. "Learning SQL" broadened my knowledge with its simple, easy to follow chapters. All of the important concepts are explained, and the examples given are very clear and intuitive.

4-0 out of 5 stars Cool
Have you ever wondered how to create 12000 principle in kerberos from a list of username and passwords, maybe the data is stored in some mysql database? Yeah I had to do that and this book came to my aid.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction
I came across Expect while I was trying to find a programming language to automate certain tasks in my experiments.After seeing how practical it was with automating command line sessions and I decided to get this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice reference to have
The good thing about this book is that it gives one a basic back ground of TCL before delving into Expect which, makes it an excellent "quick" reference book to have on the shelf. The only drawback I can really think of is that it is not extensive as it should be to make it an exhaustive reference guide. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book. Got something for everybody
You got to know the basics of Visual Basic before using this book. This book is a very good reference for learning Visual Basic 2005 and also for the advanced developer. It's good for beginners when you are in the stage of "How do I do this...". It's also includes updates for VB6 programmer who are upgrading to Visual Basic 2005 alerting them about the code breaking changes in Visual Basic 2005. The problems discussed are real-world that you may have faced or will face in your development.

5-0 out of 5 stars From zero to Pythonista in less than 700 pages
First, one caveat: before reading this book, get a feeling for Python from the official tutorial, and some of the excellent tutorials and book available online (e.g., parts of "Dive into Python"). The greater the experience you have with other languages, the shorter the warm-up period. Then, buy this book. The chapters on the language description and OOP are models of clarity and brevity, in any book/reference and any language. All the other chapters are extremely useful too. This book complements perfectly the official library and language references, and covers almost everything you will ever need. It truly is the ideal reference book, and an incredible value for the money. I just hope that Alex Martelli will keep future editions below 700 pages while adding material on other GUI frameworks and PyPy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed
Well organized comprehensive desk reference.Can serve as an introduction to Python for a reader willing to do some heavy lifting.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book for Python
Never got the 1st ed. so I got the 2nd ed. as soon as it came out last month (yes, I've been waiting for it :-D). I have to say I am not a Python expert but have been using C and other programming languages for years. I was looking for a book which can help me learn Python and also can be used as a reference. Now I am very happy I found it and it reaches my expectation. It's a solid book with 690+ pages full of everything I need to know about Python. Highly recommended ! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Addresses all aspects of growing a web-based service
From hardware to the LAMP software cache, from performance profiling to SQL query tuning, from source control to database partitioning the author addresses or touches all topics involved in growing a web service (which happens to be my primary occupation these days).The book is well-structured and the balance between each aspect is fairly good.The coding examples are few enough that their emphasis on MySQL and PHP are not a problem even if you don't happen to use these technologies.
4-0 out of 5 stars OK - book
I like this book. Very good - easy language. Intresting to read.

3-0 out of 5 stars Way too technical for me.
I couldn't get through it and had to end up sending it to my team of developers. The title is very compelling, but from a creative/management perspective, it's dense. I wouldn't recommend this book for someone like me who handles every aspect of Web application development except for the actual coding. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best!
I can keep this review real short.. this book still applies even in Flash 8. It has great concepts, holds nothing back and exposes the reader to the intense power and capabilities of Flash.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Source for Actionscript
This book has just about everything I could have ever wanted in an Actionscript book.It covers the ins and outs and tiny details overlooked by so many other `quick tutorial' type books.This book is touted as the primary source for learning Actionscript and undoubtedly it is.You really need to get a good handle on movieclips, levels, timelines, depths, and classes so you're not banging your head later or chasing your tail for hours asking yourself, "What is going on here? This Flash Actionscript is really doing odd things with my movieclips (objects), none of which I expected to happen."Moock dispels all uncertainty about Actionscript with Flash.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book is by far the best book on AS!
I have many many books on both AS and Flash and this book is by far the most informative, well written and most comprehensive book on ActionScript for beginning to intermediate developers that I have found. Colin Moock clearly knows his stuff and he has a teaching style that is rare with authors this day and age. It is very clear that Mr. Moock loves what he is doing because his love for AS gleems through the perfectly written tutorials of this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars very insightful UNIX introduction
Well, once I have started with this book and it had beenhelpful and well guiding book. In is not the "only" book you will need. I have followed someone review's advice and paired this book with a "UNIX Essentials" DVD and they made a very effective couple.
5-0 out of 5 stars nice first UNIX book
I like easy to read book and I also had assumed that learning UNIX is not necessarily has to be a struggle. This book stood up to my expectations almost perfectly: it is very well written and clearly expressed work. It does not overwhelm with technical details and does not press too much. I also followed an advise in someone review and purchased "UNIX Essentials" DVD that is complete unix course recorded. These two nicely complement one another. You watch it and you read it. If you didn't catch it from the first try you watch it again and read it again. In two months I found myself confident to that extend that gave advises to our system administrator and he accepted them because there were subjects that he wasn't completely sure. What I can say, in three month I passed my first interview and got a job! Sure it is a way to start there much of more advanced reading that will take over you with a time however these two provide you with the BASIS!
4-0 out of 5 stars an excellent handy reference for LEARNERS
I made a mistake buying this book. It may not be apparent from the cover graphics that the name of this book is 'Learning the (in smaller print) UNIX Operating System' and not just 'Unix operating System' - which I was looking for.

Editorial Review

Among network designers and administrators, wired Ethernet is a known quantity. Plenty is known about how to build good twisted-pair network infrastructures, how to keep them secure, and how to monitor their excess capacity. Not so for the wireless Ethernet networks (built around the IEEE 802.11x standards)--these hold much more mystery for even experienced network designers. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible 802.11 book
I tend not to read and review books on as broad a subject as "wireless networking."I've read and reviewed wireless security books like Real 802.11 Security and Wi-Foo, but 802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Ed (8WN2E) was a departure for me.Thankfully, 8WN2E is an incredible book.It exceeded my expectations and definitely earned its "Definitive Guide" status.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Guide To Wireless Networks
'802.11 Wireless Networks: The Definitive Guide' by Matthew Gast is a very comprehensive look at wireless networks from top to bottom.Spanning 600+ pages, this is an extensive look at one of the most important technologies of the last 50 years.No matter where you are on this planet, wireless networking has changed your life and no doubt it will continue to expand as we humans invent and adapt all over the planet.Buyer beware, this guide is not for the basic reader, rather it is a thorough look at the technology and it can get confusing at times!
5-0 out of 5 stars Your Guid to Wi-Fi
Gast's comprehensive coverage of the 802.11 standard is definitly worthy of the title 'definitive guide'.The reading is fairly fast paced and written in such a way that readers can skip to certain chapters and gain insight on the high level of the protocol with previous knowledge of the lower chapters.For example, one can read about 802.1X and its application to Wi-Fi without needing to read previous chapters as the author provides any re-cap that will be needed from earlier chapters.

4-0 out of 5 stars LDAP System Administration review
This book provides a good introduction to implementing OpenLDAP.I found the authors "jumped" tangentially around quite a bit topically, rather than following an idea from start to finish.It was a bit disconcerting following the examples and being interrupted with background material constantly.This may be an editorial problem, as usually backreferences to material are enclosed in callout boxes, while the topical flow continues.3-0 out of 5 stars LDAP Administration for UNIX

Hmm this is weird, I am the only one who is writing a good review on this book. Whats up with that. Maybe the people who wrote the reviews are not actually programmers but confused minds. Please accept my apologies. I think this book is a very good source on VB 6.0. I used this during my Master's Program, during my Internship and in my professional life. I dont know what people are expecting, but this is a good medium level fast paced source on VB 6.0. If you have to write a quick VB App, and dont have much time on your hands, pick up this book. If you want to be a VB guru then this is not what you want. But for starters and quick reference people who use VB 6.0 from time to time, I would highly recomment this one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional SQL Performance Book
'The Art of SQL' by Stephane Faroult is an outstanding book for any and all database developers that want to learn how to write better SQL code and make their database efficiency go UP UP UP!!Encompassing 300+ pages, this well-written and advanced book goes way past the basics of writing SELECT and INSERT statements, taking things to the next level and then some!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Most Unusual Technical Book
Imagine a cookbook with no recipes but after you read it it helps to become abetter cook.This book does not specifically tells what to do.It does not have codes or technical jargon. It gives you an understanding.The book reads well, it is not full of technical references but it is not to say this book is for someone who does not know the workings of a DBMS.The author draws a relevant parallel between designing a database and waging a war.I enjoyed the quotes thoughtfully peppered in the book.Do me a favor and do not get it...in case we are going after the same job

5-0 out of 5 stars This is your graduate level course in SQL - how and why
Probably most database solution developers and DBAs have picked up their knowledge of the subject as they have needed it, rather than in a formal and structured (so to speak) method. And even those that have had a structured education probably learned a lot more while in the field. And so there are always gaps. Gaps in technique, but also gaps in the why of many things that I, for example, took for granted about large DBMS's and SQL.

If you need to understand the difference between BIND 9 or Windows AD DNS and BIND 8, this is not the book for you. But if your management decides to tell you about the imporant new product launch on 20 servers in a new domain they just bought and kept under wraps to stun the competition which they need implemented in some novel way that requires a DNS twist, THIS will save you.
5-0 out of 5 stars A 'MUST HAVE' for new DNS Administrators
This book has turned out to be the best investment I've made so far in my 20 year IT career. I've always trusted O'Reilly books for their detailed accuracy. However, for the task at hand, I didn't need a book to explain WHY things work... I needed one to tell me how to GET them to work. This book was perfect! It doesn't replace the DNS and BIND, 4th Edition, but is a great compliment... Actually, I'm finding the 4th Edition a perfect compliment to the Cookbook.

4-0 out of 5 stars A NICE PROBLEM-SOLVING ORIENTATION
"DNS & BIND Cookbook" is a problem-solving text, which Network Administrators will be glad to read. It displayed utmost rationality in its simple and concise way of dealing with most problems, which arise from Domain Name Systems. It also exposed all the factors, which are likely to escalate Berkeley Internet Name Domain problems, before providing their remedies in a clear sequential order.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars pricey but worth it
I know this seems abit pricey but its worth it. I dont have the attention span needed to read most books cover-to-cover. Even though this book is huge I have browsed it all and read most of it. Multiple times! Each time I find some new tidbit to use.

5-0 out of 5 stars The one unix book that I'd like to have if stranded all alone on an island with a linux system!!
I'm an analog IC designer moonlighting as a linux hacker (I'm actually addicted). I try to build software, write shell scripts and customize my desktop to death. I picked up this book a year or two back and I think I've probably used it almost every single day to look up something or the other. I probably own about 20 linux related books (more than my engineering books) but this is the one that I would run out with when the firealarm sounds. Here is my short summary of my feelings about this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed to see MRE is PDF, not HTML

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than paper
A programming book in paper can be good, but an electronic version is much better. The ability to search, copy-and-paste makes this bookshelf the best perl reference you can have. All the pages are HTML, so you could put it in your intranet to share it with colleagues. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful to have these do hand whereever
O'Reilly have collected some of my favorite books onto one CD.I now find myself using this more than the paper copies of the books!Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Book for MySQL 4.x users
This book is very practical and gives a clean insight for Power Users of MySQL. It also illustrates some concepts in brief and gets user going fast. Some of the topics like backups, load balancing are covered very well. In short following is what I can say in points.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book overall, but may grow obsolete to MySQL5.
I mainly bought this book so that I could get some insight into 'advanced' Storage and Replication techniques w/ MySQL.
5-0 out of 5 stars A computer book actually worth reading
I read approximately 2 computer-related books a month, and have done so for the last 10 years.This book is the best computer book I have read in the last 5 years, hands down.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
This book is just great. It has a lot of examples and every concept is well explained. Even for those who are not used to programming, this is a great book to start shell scripting.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Reference to KSH
I found this book very helpful in learning to write scripts for the Korn Shell.I keep it on my desk all the time now, even for other shells (Bash/etc).It's an invaluable reference to me.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must if you use KSH
While not as popular (at least in Linux circles) as bash, ksh is a powerful language/tool.Put bluntly, this is one of the few O'Reilly books I have read cover to cover.That isn't to say that the others don't warrant a thorough perusal, but that this book was readily accessible and provided excellent information.I have used it as a reference countless times over the years and do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone using or considering using ksh.Moreover, if you are considering using ksh - or perhaps need a better background in Unix shell scripting - read this book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good book about Postfix
I wasn't looking for esoteric information on how to administer Sendmail. I was looking for a book on Postfix and that's what the author provided. I got the book based a lot on the quality of O'Reilly books and the editor's reputation. Andy Oram is a top notch editor. I recommend this book to any Linux or UNIX person wanting to substitute Postfix for sendmail. Postfix is a drop in replacement for systems configured for sendmail but Postfix is not a monlithic program with lots of vulnerabilities. The author expalins that perfectly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference guide for PostFix
PostFix is a replacement mail server, MTA, for Unix based systems that
2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting
If you're looking for a comprehensive guide on setting up a Postfix mail server, then this isn't the book for you.For those that are already familiar with setting up MTAs, the information provided in "The Definitive Guide" is probably enough, but this book only covers a subset of the Postfix configuration parameters and does not provide the step-by-step instructions that many people may be expecting. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A real page turner
This book is so interesting that on a couple occasions I've fallen asleep reading it, because I want to "find out what happens next" -- not because it is boring.Even the chapter on queueing theory that has a lot of math in it is understandable and interesting, even though I have a mild aversion to math.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance book
I purchased this book and did not open it for about 4 months.After reading the first 25 pages or so I became motivated to read more and finish it.It took me about 2 weeks to read through the entire book. The author does a really good job of detailing how to use Oracle tracing to troubleshoot performance related issues.With no shortage of Oracle performance tuning books this is definitely one of the better ones.This book must be one of the best performance related books because you can read it cover to cover.The book is packed with detail so you will reread several pages a few times, kind of like being in college and spending a couple of hours reviewing a couple of pages out of Calculus book.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am so happy to have found this book and DVD lesson
I have needed InDesign Training for a very long time.It is the only program the agency I work for is allowed to use, but I live in the middle of nowhere and have been unable to attend classes.This book and 2 hour DVD lesson totally has gotten me up to speed on making page layouts.I only wish I had bought it from Amazon instead of Barnes and Noble, I would have saved $15.At any rate, get this book.The best thing about it is that the author uses PRACTICAL examples for doing things.Most computer books expect you to know things already.Well, I didn't know squat.Now I do.The author runs you through simple examples, getting more and more complex with functions, until you have it down.I love that!I loved this book so much I ordered his Photoshop book too since I need to learn that program.So, if you bought InDesign CS2 and need help from the get go, GET THIS BOOK FIRST!

5-0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for Deke....
I would never have tackled InDesign CS2 without this book. Deke lays it out, so to speak, in every way. Do-along lessons, The DVD and the large pictures showing you what it should look like create a visual safety net. You almost can't go wrong. The book lessons are so clear and Deke takes you through every way to do a thing in each lesson. If you're a keyboard freak there are keyboard shortcuts galore, include Deke Keys which you can install with the lessons. I am more of a mouse person and Deke makes sure to outline all the ways you can use the mouse to access pallets and work with graphics and text. Deke is enthusiastic about the software but brutally honest about it's few shortcomings. Best of all, he takes you through the trickiest parts of the learning process and manages to be funny all the while. I always love Deke's lesson plans. Instead of using a stuffy business format for the sample documents he presents you with projects like Little Pupper Friend's Cookie Recipe or Professor Shembops 1970's pop music quiz. It all feels less intimidating. Another good thing is the way Deke explains things for those of us who have been using PageMaker or QuarkXPress. Adobe InDesign CS2 One on One is a wonderful way to learn. The book is great for design people who are not particularly "techie". Still, InDesign CS2 is not for sissies.I know this sounds nutty, but I feel like Deke is right here with me every step of the way.

3-0 out of 5 stars Enough with the shortcuts already
I bought this book because of the extensive amount of instructional video that accompanies the written text. It was something I was looking for in an instructional book - and I didn't find another book with 2+ hours of video. However, after only completing four of the chapters I cannot help but be bothered by the fact that the author has an awful habit of telling you ever possible shortcut configuration for every function. He spends an inordinate amount of time explaining all the shortcut possibilities which is very distracting when you are trying to follow along with an exercise. It's great to know all these handy shortcuts, but if you are just starting to learn InDesign (and I'm guessing here) you initially just want the basics. This approach really slows down the process. Unfortunately, these "shortcut digressions" seem to continue throughout the book. The video content (and the book content) probably could have been reduced by about 30-40% if he didn't labor about every possible shortcut every other sentence. In all fairness the book does contain a lot of content, but I am kinda disappointed by the video. They could have made this potentially excellent book truly excellent if they made an appendix of all these shortcuts rather than cram every option into every exercise. Very distracting. ...

Editorial Review

If you've adopted Java as your organizational language, you're probably using, or planning to use, some sort of multitier design to maximize maintainability while making your data store accessible to as many applications as possible. The Jakarta engine ranks as the interface server of choice in that environment, and the Jakarta Struts Framework 1.1 makes it far easier to implement multitier information systems. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a tutorial - Don't buy if you want to learn struts
This book should not be viewed as a tutorial. If you know nothing about struts and you want to learn, do not buy this book. You will only confuse yourself.
4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough Review
The previous book I had on Struts did a poor job of... well, everything. It is called "The Struts Framework" and the main reason I bought it was because it was a manageable 150 pages long. (Am I the only one tired of several hundred page tech books?)
2-0 out of 5 stars Convoluted and difficult to understand
Usually I consult Amazon for a book reference. This time I decided to buy this book simply because it's O'REILLY.
