5-0 out of 5 stars PHP Security is a HUGE topic
This book is essential for anyone starting out in PHP, but not only for them. It offers tips for almost any skill level, maybe you know some of the ways to keep your site secure but Chris really goes in depth on some of them.
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a developer who is writing insecure PHP code? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Chris Shiflett, has done an outstanding job of writing a practical book that will help you improve your PHP application-level security.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential for the Beginner or Advanced PHP developer
As a very security conscious developer, I found this book to be a GREAT resource to my library. Though the book is short in length, it is very rich in content. Chris does a GREAT job of presenting the problem (citing specific examples of the exploits), showing the pitfalls, and then presenting the solutions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 in VB 2005
Book arrived in excellent condition in 6 days.Great service.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very practical
I found this book to be substantially better than others that I looked at. Most ASP.NET books focus on how to use the automated tools in Visual Web Developer. These are powerful tools, but they seem to give your website a "canned" look.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good Resource for asp.net programming
I received the book"Beginning ASP.NET in VB.NET" recently in our User Group meeting and just finished going through the 600 pages. The chapter with creating a data table based on a datagrid connected to the Northwind database. This early demonstration of ASP.NET's power leads to an "aha" moment and keeps you going. It is refreshing to have the code work as promised. Unlike other ASP.NET books which address VB a communities that show a marked preference for one or the other language, virtually every example in this book is given a five star rate. There are several screenshots of how to carry out various tasks in ASP.NET that are very useful for beginners. Similarly, screenshots of results from example programs are also very helpful. This book is "self-contained" for any concepts it discusses. You don't need to run to another book to seek clarifications. For me, this is the one book that brought together every aspect of ASP.NET, from hands-on tasks, to conceptual issues. And the beauty is the whole discussion doesn't seem disjointed given its scope. I guess this is the advantage of having only one/two authors. The one minor criticism (may be just my personal preference) is, in the chapters on Accessing Data with ADO.NET, I wish there was (i) a short discussion of further abstraction between UI and a database made possible by using XML, and (ii) creating strongly typed datasets from XML schemas (using the xsd.exe tool for example) but likely it is outside the scope of the book to discuss this (in fact creating XML schemas and reading XML data files are addressed in later chapters through examples, so (i) is taken care of. And (ii) is too specific to warrant being a critical point). I strongly recommend this book as an essential reference to ASP.NET.

4-0 out of 5 stars True to it's purpose
I went to my local bookstore to get a functional understanding of ".NET". My previous readings had been hit and miss and provided little understanding of the new platform.
3-0 out of 5 stars .NET Framework Essentials (3rd ED)
As the title says, this book gives the essentials of the .NET framework.It is not an exhaustive treatment, rather, it touches on the main features of .NET.The book assumes that the reader is fluent in object-oriented and component-based programming.Overall, the book was fairly well written with the main features of the .NET framework being clearly explained.The book has no distractive "fluff" in it, so one can easily dive into learning about .NET.The authors give an overview of .NET, and then present a description of the common language runtime (CLR).The common programming model and working with .NET components follow.XML data and web services are clearly explained with a lot of code snippets being given.The book concludes with chapters on ASP, Windows Forms, and mobile devices.The appendices are useful, as sometime acronyms aren't defined in the main text, but are explained in the appendix.
1-0 out of 5 stars To Software Developers: Don't Bother
IMHO, OReilly tends to have the best technology books (I own many) but this book isn't one of them. This book is lightweight even as an introduction. This book is certainly fine for managers, senior architects, and business types, but if you plan to design and write software I recommend Jeff Prosise's "Programming Microsoft .NET" and Jeffrey Richter's "Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming", though a bit dated, both cover the .NET framework essentials and then some. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, With Well Thought Out Examples
I picked up this book after reading a good review on Slashdot.org, and I'm happy to say that I'm not disappointed.4-0 out of 5 stars This book covers all layers of Jabber very well
When I first picked up this book, I expeted to understand the Jabber protocol in sufficient depth to implement my own IM client. Instead, the approach this book takes is that Jabber isn't just an XML-based protocol strictly for IM, rather it is a general purpose event notification protocol that has some very nice message routing and user management features built into it. While I was reading about the messages that Jabber has defined as part of the protocol, I could easily see other applications/devices generating Jabber messages to notify subscribers (either other systems, or people) of events.5-0 out of 5 stars DJ delivers an excellent primer into the world of Jabber
As a disclaimer, I have been involved with Jabber for 3 years, am the author of one of the more popular Jabber clients for linux, and am a friend of DJ's.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fix the *!$@$!* Index!
I bought this book to lead me into my first foray into PHP. It was just what I needed, except for one problem: the index. Basic PHP functions such as "print" and "echo" are covered in the text, but you won't find them in the index. The data type "mixed" is used in the code examples, but isn't explained anywhere that I could find, and also lacks an index entry. As others have remarked, there are a few errors in the text, but they're pretty obvious and didn't get in the way of writing workable scripts. An excellent introduction to PHP, but a number of needless annoyances.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Up to Snuff
When I purchase a Nutshell book from O'reilly, I anticipate a very formal, detailed overview of a language and an in-depth coverage of that language's standardized libraries and features. PHP in a Nutshell is very lax with informal explainations and coverage. I am not saying that the book lacks information; it just lacks the typical detail of a usual Nutshell book. This book also has simple errors that should have been caught if the author had reviewed his own work; this is simply unexceptable. I, today, counted over 4 simple mistakes on the chapter about operators. This is something unheard of from O'reilly. I have been programming with PHP for a while now and was hoping to find a definitive reference ... well, this isn't it!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great PHP Reference

Editorial Review

O'Reilly has done it again! This is my favorite book yet on writing CGI scripts with Perl (5.0). The extensive use of real world applications you can try while learning, and the great examples of how to have CGI interact with databases are especially useful. I suspect I shall order several copies for some of our staff who are new to CGI. Although the book has a UNIX bias, it has much to offer scripters on all platforms. Read more

If you have a basic understanding of Perl and HTML, this book helps youlearn CGI.The book also introduced me to postscript and gd, which havebeen quite valuable for a lot of applicatioins.I enjoyedShishir'smodest, down-to-earth writing style.Since many people havecriticizedthis book, let me refute the most common criticisms:"Thesource code should be on a CD-ROM".No.Programming is in the fingers. You learn by typing.Anyway, you canFTP it if your lazy."The levelof detail is poor".That's what man pages and FAQ's are for.Shishiris giving more of a guided tour of CGI, with just enough detail to getstarted in each area."The source code has mistakes/is missingsemicolons."I didn't find this problem.But anyway, you should knowenough Perl to put the semicolons where they belong.If you don't knowPerl, this bookis not for you.Everything in this book is available on theweb, but the book will savethe beginner a ton of time digging around.Also,Shishir does not encourage use of CGI.pm, which is both good and bad.Ithink it's good because it teaches better understanding of the low-levelCGI mechanics.On the flipside, use of CGI.pm can protectyou from a lot ofobvious mistakes.I haven't found a better introduction to CGI. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good choice for investigating VoIP for your organization...
It seems like Voice over Internet Protocol, aka VoIP, is starting to become much more mainstream.Not only are businesses switching over, but now you can set up your home phone access to use VoIP (aka "broadband") technology.Ted Wallingford has done a nice job in explaining the business side of the possibilities in the book Switching to VoIP - A Solutions Manual for Network Professionals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This book provides a comprehensive look at not only VoIP, but all related legacy telephony systems it may interact with or replace.A wonderful resource for anyone considering a VoIP deployment either at the office or at home.The technical detail and background the author provides in his examples and background information is incredibly helpful.I definately recommend..

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
As the telcom manager for a rather large enterprise (45,000 users) I try to keep up on the various books on VoIP and this one is pretty good. It is designed towards someone who is knowledgeable about voice and data but not necessarily someone how is an expert in either subject. It also does a very good job of not focusing on any one type of technology but covers H.323, SIP and Cisco amongst many others and gives you a good sense of each flavor that is available. I would recommend it for anyone looking to deploy VoIP. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A good summary and comprehensive bibliography to those who want to go deeper
This book covers concisely all the modern aspects os software project management, without the complexity found in more formal PM sources like the PMBOK. Moreover, the job of translating the broad and general concepts covered in the PMBOK to practical day-to-day scenarios is the major benefit from buying it. It won't, however, cover an specific issue like estimation to the level that enables you to be an estimator (this subject, for instance, is only 17 pages long), but will provide you the guidelines and references to additional material to do so.

Do you work for a software organization who where there are chronic problems producing software on schedule and without defects? If you do, then this book is for you! Authors Andrew Stellman and Jennifer Greene, have done an outstanding job of writing a practical book that describes the specific tools, techniques and practices that a project manager needs to put in place in order to run a software project or fix an ailing one.

The suite of utility applications that Unix users and administrators find indispensable--Telnet, rlogin, FTP, and the rest--can in fact prove to be the undoing of interconnected systems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Makes sense of the obscure land of SSH
For something that should be simple SSH is anything but a walk in the park. This is compounded by the fact that the documentation for SSH just blows. This book, however, does everything but blow. In classic O'Reilly fashion the author decomposes the topic and covers it effectively from almost every angle with excellent writing and superb graphics. This is a great book for anyone who uses SSH, or who is having issues with it.

This book should be titled "General Security Buzzwords 101 For The High Level User." The information in it just misses the information that one would be looking for in a technical environment. ... Read more

Hi there,
5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensable Reference
Large books, by their very nature, can have good points and bad points. After all, if you have a couple or several hundred pages worth of material, you are bound to get some things right and some things wrong.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great little reference book (third edition)
Great little reference book.It is not intended to be a learning tool.If you want that, try the Head First book on HTML/XHTML/CSS that O'Reilly also publishes.

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

4-0 out of 5 stars Great first SQL book, and useful reference
I'm no SDE, but I had a need to learn enough SQL to enable me to hit my company's Data Warehouse tables directly and employ some complex joins.This was the book recommended to me, and it did the trick.I sat down and began reading it and was quickly writing increasingly complex queries.I found the explanations easy to follow, and the format intuitive.The only fault I found is that there is a lack of more complex join examples, as when there are more than one field being joined on or more than two tables being joined.

2-0 out of 5 stars Inadequate
Half of this 450 page book surveys basic SQL, and the other half is on features Oracle added to SQL in versions 9i and especially 10g. The book seems to have been intentionally "crippled" to limit it to the category of introductory overview, because much of what you need to know to work with Oracle SQL is simply not there:
4-0 out of 5 stars Good overview of Basic DML & advanced features
I will agree with other reviewers that cite this book as an excellent resource. It is well organized and easy to follow from topic to topic without getting lost. The examples are well introduced and written with few minor errors. These will be easy to spot for someone who has used any flavor of SQL.

I thought the book to be better than the "AWK programming language" by Aho, Kerninghan and Weinberger, the original authors of the AWK language. I recommend the book to beginers as I am. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Photoshop CS2 RAW
I must admit, I took a long time switching to digital for photo work, and then I thought I was set. It appears that not only do a I have to master the camera for settings, but in those instances where the money talks, I have to learn about RAW format rather than the high res JPG format I thought was dealing me a good deal.
4-0 out of 5 stars Too much graphic art - too little substance
In the field of digital photography, capturing and developing "RAW" files is a hot topic, largely because this is usually the route to the highest image quality attainable.The subject can be a bit opaque because each manufacturer mechanizes in-camera RAW files differently.Also, there are many different RAW converters (software packages for developing the RAW files into optimized images) from both the camera manufacturers and third parties.One of the most popular RAW converters is Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), originally released by Adobe as a plug-in for Photoshop 7 and Photoshop Elements, and now integrated into both products.
4-0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction to RAW
I bought this book after reading the other 5-star reviews, so I thought Wow! This must be it! Well, it's almost 'it'. The book gives a well-written and useful explanation of what RAW is all about, and also shows some good examples of what you can do with RAW. It also helps you to decide when to shoot in RAW or when you'd better just switch to JPG.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy a clue, Gerald
Gerald W. Irmler writes in his review "I also have two very large Perl books that are also almost useless, so maybe it's a Perl problem."Well yes, Perl is not an easy language, but I suspect that the main problem here is an Irmler problem.This book does a very good job of doing what it intends to.Another clue that Irmler is lacking a clue is the baffling comment that "The author seemed more interested in being clever and funny, then (sic) imparting information."Huh?The book is comprised entirely of very succinct facts about the language.There is no style here to speak of, due to the nature of the book.

Editorial Review

Samba, the Server Message Block (SMB) server software that makes it relatively easy to integrate Unix or Linux servers into networks of Microsoft Windows workstations, has to date been mostly explained as an afterthought. Most often, it's appeared in the latter chapters of books about Linux. It deserves better, and the authors of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Samba is so cool! And this book is so perfect in getting you set up so that you can use it. I have slowly been introducing a Unix (freebsd) system into our office network (all Windows). I had NO idea how to set up Samba or anything.
3-0 out of 5 stars Obsolete and No longer applicable
This book covers the older SAMBA 2.0 which has a set of solutions for 10-year old Windows NT domain era of obsoleted technologies. There is some small mention of SAMBA 3.0 in the later edition, but it is still 98% SAMBA 2.0 based, which is far too overdocumented.
4-0 out of 5 stars More than you wanted to read, more than you wanted to know
Oh my goodness this book is detailed. This is truly a case of teaching a man to fish rather than feeding him. This book covers everything in grizzly detail. If you're not prepared to sit down and chew your way to being a Samba guru then get something else. This book is a long and I must admit a dry read but it's very powerful. It doesn't make light of the topic and it takes a while to read but like anything of value it's worth the effort. Excellent book, if you're using Samba in an office environment you need this book, you'll find out how to do all kinds of things you only dreamed of. ... Read more
