5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must-Have" For Every Modeling Job
Silverston's books (volume 1 and volume 2) are a "must-have" for any data modeler at the onset of a new project. The books are nicely organized by subject-area (for example, "People and Organizations" or "Human Resources" or "Health Care") and the table-of-contents and indicies are rich and very helpful. You can use these books as your main reference books for every question, meeting, inquiry regarding your modeling work (ex: "why did you model currency in this way?" Or "How do you model vendor and client relationships?".
5-0 out of 5 stars The Resource Book is just that
We ordered this book because we are about to begin designing a new information system for our company.Silverston's book addresses many of the issues we found ourselves wrestling with (in designing the CRM portion of the system for instance), and it presents options with the pros and cons of each.

2-0 out of 5 stars Two surprises I didn't like
The text of this book was generally good - although it seemed padded out with a massive listing of model metadata.The book comes with a CD.The first surprise was, the CD does not include the Data Definition Language (DDL) for its sample models... there's an extra cost for that.My question to the publisher would be, what good is the CD you provide for free?

Editorial Review

PHP and MySQL go hand in hand; the former has been carefully adapted, through the efforts of the open-source community, to the latter. For situations that require dynamic content but don't merit the complexity and development time of Java or .NET enterprise applications, the PHP language and the MySQL database server fit the bill perfectly. That's the point Hugh Williams and David Lane make in Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly poor index
I'm new to PHP and MySQL, but a programmer for over 3 decades. I'm customizing some PHP code, using code examples for ideas. When I (a) see something I want to understand better or (b) want to find the PHP analog for basic functions, I naturally turn to the index to try to find the information I need. However, I found the index very disappointing because of what it doesn't have. For example, simple and basic keywords are not in the index: "comment", "logical operator", "and", "or", etc. I'm going to have order a different book as a PHP reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best starting point to php and mysql
I bought this book with the hope I could learn just enought to get me started with web application development. I only hadlittle programming experience at that time, I I didn't even have any experience with databases. Well. This book was the perfect introduction to web applications. From security to authentication, from php basics to multi-table join sql queries, this book got me into this world, and I appreciate it so much because I am working now in web development, thanks to what I learned from here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction Book & Reference
This book is an excellent introduction to PHP, MySQL, and the interaction of the two. It has a few chapters introducing PHP, then a few introducing MySQL, and then walks through the steps necessaryto build a functioning dynamic website. They also include an elaborate and detailed case study of a Winestore application the author's developed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best choice for advanced data modeling.
If you will got this book, you will got perfect template model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Is it worth buying a book for only one chapter?
Yes, it is. Because the other chapters have all sorts of useful content as well. This book covers Manufacturing, Telecommunications, Health Care, Insurance, Financial Services, Professional Services, Travel, and e-Commerce. Most companies, even if they aren't in those sectors, use the services of companies that are (or may do a little bit of them - offer insurance on their products, for example), and if you need to include these areas in your model, in more detail than was covered in volume 1 (the core Universal Data Model book), then this is the place to start. If you are in one of these areas, then the specific chapter has a lot of useful stuff (I have worked in Travel, Telecommunications and Professional Services), but it is well worth checking out the other models for ideas that can be re-used in your area.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Time Saver!
The industry models defined in volume 2 have greatly accelerated our data warehouse/mart projects. We have used many of the pre-defined industry models for both internal and external projects. Again, a great time saver allowing us to "jump-start" our data projects. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I needed to know quickly how to implement a BI solution and ordered three books:Delivering Business Intelligence with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 by Brian Larsen, Applied Microsoft Analysis Services by Teo Lachev, and this book.Of the tree books, this is the only one I really needed.This book had everything I wanted to know about Analysis Services.I was also impressed with the knowledge and information regarding how to design dimensions and cubes especially when it comes to tough situations such as how to apply security.If you need to implement a BI solution, I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for business intelligence....
I have over 9 years of database experience, with about 4 years in MS Data Warehousing experience which included Reporting Services and DTS.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Book on Analysis Services
Microsoft has been extending the capabilities of their SQL Server product to make it more useful in enterprise environments. As is often the case, the first version of the product to make it to market isn't everything that the customer might want.In fact the authors make the comment that the user interface was about as complex as driving a nuclear submarine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book -- Great information
This being my first book about databases, I find that it explains the topic at hand very well, and concisely. While database design can be daunting of a task, the book guides the reader through it step by step, explaining exactly why something is like it is. The first chapters discuss the different models that were in use and what is becoming mainstream right now. Very easy to read, but some technological insight is suggested when starting this.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Book, unless you got the Interntional Edition!!
Great text book, but like all students I was looking for the cheapest price tag. I got the international edition for half the price, however, I discovered that it was missing pages, though the cover claims that it has the exact same content as US Edition. It is also missing a CD. The US Edition comes with 2 CD's including the SQL Server CD, which the international edition doesn't come with.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best DB Design and DB Theory book on the market!!!!
This book is top notch...I've read many DB design books, but this one took the cake..When I took my database design class at my university, the professor was great, but the book was even BETTER!!!! I never knew about "normalizing data" until I saw this book and took the class!!! The theory, concepts, examples, and illustrations are 5-star quality!! I still use this book today, and its more than a year passed now, when I need to look up or refresh myself on a concept...Excellent learning tool, as well as a great reference for DB design....Only one problem, the book is "big" in size!!! Get it IF you can!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Mind Hacks: Tips & Tools for Using Your Brain
It's a book very interested about language in mind and speech comprehension. I read a short comment in BBC Focus magazine and I wish to read because it's very easy to learn the misteries of mind in cognitive science applied to language and psichology.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun book
It is not a typical "hacks" book in that it does not tell you how to utilize you brain more effectively or do neat things.It *does*have a lot of exercises that show you cool things on how your brain works with sections describing how your brain works - and a number of experiments (blind spot, Magnet interaction with the brain, word parsing in the the mind, and so on). This book goes very well with a recent title called _Mind Wide Open_ by Steven Johnson.

4-0 out of 5 stars Is a good book
Is a nice book, it hasn't got many advanced stuff like backups or problems solutions but is a good book for people just become a middle or new postgresql user.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive coverage
This is the only PostgreSQL book that I know of that covers writing functions and triggers in PL/pgSQL with any level of detail.There is also a very detailed section on performace monitoring and tuning.Overall, the best book you can get on PostgreSQL administration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners
This is a great way to get started with postgreSQL or for learning databases in general.Each sentence actually makes sense and doesn't require referencing other texts like so many other technical books.The book is very thorough so don't let the size intimidate you.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in starting their own database project. ...

-don't know which program you will be using for SQL and have no knowledge of SQL commands, this book is directed at you and you should get it.
5-0 out of 5 stars My first taste of SQL
This book is perfect for teaching yourself SQL. Perhaps that's why the title is "Teach Yourself SQL". I had never worked with SQL before and was recommended this book by a coworker. The chapters are divided into lessons and each lesson is fairly short, focusing on specific ideas and phrases.
5-0 out of 5 stars Use this Book Often - it is a keeper
I work on the web 5 days a week for a living - and some code is only used now and then - this book is a great refresher for those little things you do not use often.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST SQL ADMIN RESOURCE. PERIOD.
When I have a question about SQL Server this is the first book I turn to. It packs more into its 549 pages than books nearly twice its size, and it does this by focusing on what matters and by being clear and concise.
2-0 out of 5 stars Careful
A pet peeve i have w/ Microsoft books is they just mirror the help files. This admin pocket guide is not much more than regurgitated help files. I was hoping for some useful examples, closer to real life problems & solutions. Not there. Plz use the help files in Books Online to look up topics THEN examine the same topic in this book at a local bookstore BEFORE buying it. (Based on good reviews, i bought this & the Administrator's Guide to SQL Server 2005 by Buck Woody)
5-0 out of 5 stars THE ONE SQL SERVER BOOK EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE
I picked up Stanek's SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant and Windows Server 2003 Inside Out at the same time, and have found them both to be excellent. If there's one SQL Server book every developer, programmer and administrator should have, it's this one--I haven't found a better one and I've read half a dozen so far. Stanek has a gift for getting to the point, explaining the most complex concepts in ways that are easy to understand. He seems to pack a 1,000 pages of info into 550 pages. SQL Server 2005 Administrator's Pocket Consultant has a strong focus on security, configuration, optimization, and troubleshooting. Throughout the book, there's excellent coverage of T-SQL and I prefer the way T-SQL is covered in context in this book to the way it's covered in the separate T-SQL book I bought (and no longer use). Beyond core database administration, which this book covers better than any other book, it also covers full-text search, indexes, integration services (creating packages), linked servers, distributed transactions, replication, publications, etc. The maintenance chapters are some of the strongest with complete coverage of profiling, monitoring, optimizing, backup, recovery, log shipping, database mirroring, automation, etc. Thank you Mr. Stanek for an excellent book. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A+ in the NW and Data Comm hard to find books.
The subject of Networking and Data communication is hard to teach and the good books are also hard to find.
2-0 out of 5 stars For CE/EE users only!
This book is great if you are a CE/EE and want to get into all the little details around network protocols and how the hardware talks to each other. As a CS major (and Principal Software Engineer at my company) I have never had to go to the level this book pushes things at and it reminded me of where the computer industry was back in the early 70's. Many of the problems talk about teletypes and "high speed 2400 baud terminals" like they were developed just the other day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Tips, Good Read
I loved this book, and I've read lots of eBay books. Unlike some other writers these guys give you the straight story--the good with the bad--and don't make a lot of pie in the sky promises. This really keeps you centered, and realistic.I found some great tips for sourcing, which is a real challenge for all the sellers I talk to. There were also helpful tips on auction management, customer service, and selling internationally. The profiles of actual PowerSellers and many quotes and anecdotes really made this a good read.

5-0 out of 5 stars My best eBay book investment to date.
As you can see from my Me page, User ID harleyglasses. I have read many eBay related books. This one tops my list for may reasons. Althought they are not powersellers, Brad and Deb don't pretend to have invented the information in their book, they start off by thanking all of the Powersellers and other professionals that contributed to the book. I might add that many are in the top 100 sellers on eBay and are members of PeSA, the Professional eBay Sellers Alliance. Brad and Deb have all the right connections :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource - but use with caution
I purchased this book with it was first published and it greatly influenced my thinking and has continued to do so to this day.There is a large caveat I want to share before continuing - be careful of the Zachman Framework because if you do base your enterprise architecture on it you will soon discover that making changes is a tedious process that ripples across the matrix.That said, I continue to believe in the basic concepts and components of the framework, and I also think that it is an excellent way to gain a view of an enterprise when you are attempting to model it.5-0 out of 5 stars A book for multiple audiences that stands the test of time
I initially read this book at the start of my career as a systems analyst.The Zachman framework presented a great way to think about the relationships between systems, data, processes and business.Later on, as a project manager, it provided a more useful tool for understanding the importance of architecture in developing systems.In addition, it applies to architects and senior IT managers who want to make the most of their investment.5-0 out of 5 stars Amust-have for every Architect
This is a must-have book for Enterprise Architects. Application designers, aspiring to be architects, may also read this book. Certainly one of the best EAP books based on the Zachman framework. ... Read more

First off, the most recent edition of this book was published in May 2006, so all reviews prior to that are discussing previous editions of this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Informative, but not as clear as it could be
I found this book to be informative, but I sometimes had trouble understanding what they where saying.I found The Concise Guide to DNS and BIND by Nicolai Langfeldt to be more understandable in some places.If you have a good grasp of other parts of unix system administration, this book would most likely be fine. If you are more of a beginner and only want one book, get The Concise Guide.However, I recommend getting both, because they supplement each other very well. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless........for some
Stupid book, stupid class, waste of time.Unless you are totally, 100% computer illiterate.I have a friend from Arkansas named Shawn, who didn't even know how to turn the computer on (literally), who used this book and is now typing his own personal letterheads and using all the Microsoft programs taught in this book to their full extent.He woulda given it 5 stars if maybe I found some use for it other than starting fires, making patties, disposable coasters, etc.3-0 out of 5 stars Exploring Microsoft Office 2000 Professional, v. 1
Well laid out, high physical quality, effectively written text good for teaching pure beginners how to use this tool [and even v.1 has some tips for those who are experienced] with lots of useful exercises.What limitsthis to 3 stars is the fact that OUTLOOK 2000 is not covered in any waywhatsoever, despite the fact that it is an essential part of OFFICE whichis heavily used in many organizations.The index also proved lacking whenI wanted to find out about 'speaker's notes' in POWER POINT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended
Very comprehensive coverage of Office 2000 application. I get stuck on something, there is an answer! It saves so much of my time! Try it! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good General Reference
As the title, and most of the reviews (save Mr. Strauchs') suggest, this is the manual that doesn't exist in print. It's a nice alternative to the Help menu as it's written in a personable style that offers more direct and real-world applications for the basics of FileMaker.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, complete, yet easy to understand; well-done tutorials
Concur with all the other reviewers that this is THE best, most complete, yet easy-to-follow guide to FileMaker Pro [FMP]. The authors really have gone out of their way in using plain words to describe arcane concepts, and the illustrations are well executed. Although there are the usual typos and occasional ambiguous/misleading statements, there is a continuously updated website with 'Errata' and sample completed tutorial exercises. [If these were included on a CD with the book, this book would warrant a super-nova rating!]
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a programmer that has been working with FileMaker for a while? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Geoff Coffey and Susan Prosser, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that explores each feature in depth, offers shortcuts and workarounds, and explains the ramifications of options that a FileMaker Pro manual doesn't even mention.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good reference for any Windows administrator or planner
The 2003 performance guide was probably one book that's worth the price of this entire package.Mark Friedman, the author of Windows 2000 Performance Guide, wrote this book for resource kit.That explained why he never published a follow-up of his famous 2000 performance book.The other books in the kit were also extremely helpful.This is THE set of reference book to get for authoritative Windows 2003 information.Also included is a disc with all the ebook versions of everything, including some bonus books not in the resource kit.So stop Googling for unreliable second hand information, and get your stingy boss to cough up the money for this must have tool.

5-0 out of 5 stars 7 Individual Books ++
This bundled set of books contains just about everything it is possible to know about Windows Server 2003. Well, maybe not everything, but everything you can include in four thousand six hundred and fifty pages, yes, 4650 pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for Dev's only
Bob's book is written for the passionate Microsoft developer. DBA's and IT Pro's will find this book useful to have on the shelf, as there are number of features that touch the life of the Admin. Additionally, AW press has released another book, SQL Server 2005 Distilled, if you are looking for something less deep, I would try that book too.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great book for Database Developers
This is a very good book for Database Developers. It covers most topics thoroughly. Some topics like SQLCLR and XQuery are covered too much in detail for my taste, but who knows one day I might need it! (there is a 17 page WSDL in chapter 12 .. I don't know who decided to put this in :-) Initially the minutiae kind of put me off, but over time I have started to like this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars The New Testament
I feel cheated by the publishers of this book, because it was described as a "Bible" for SQL Server 2005: a "definitive hands-on guide" with "virtually every key concept" explained. It does not fit such a description, unless one's idea of a "Bible" can leave out Genesis, Exodus and the rest of the Old Testament.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent walk throughs
If you learn better through the combination of conceptual overview and detailed walk throughs you'll love Brian Larson's approach.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great overview
I would agree with the other statements about this book covering many aspects of BI.Unlike other books that focus primarily on Analysis Services, this book covers everything from data source integration to custom reporting.I was even a bit surprised to see a section on artificial intelligence as it applies to data mining.Just as the others mentiond, if it covered every aspect of each of the pieces of BI, the book would be too big.I would have liked to see more focus on the key elements to BI rather than briefly touching them as it does everything else.

3-0 out of 5 stars Save a tree
OK -- it's not terrible, but it reminds me of many books that start with "this is a field, this is a record, this is a table." It started fine - I learned the difference between star and snowflake schema, the benefits of a data mart, and the key feature of SQL 2005 Analysis Services that addresses the latency between OLTP and OLAP (it's a feature called Universal Data Model (UDM). All cool. The trouble begins in the subsequent chapters with the cutesy MaximumMinimum company and the painstaking, step-by-step "now you do it" approach. Which means you can only make use of the info if you're sitting in front of a computer. Not my cuppa. ... Read more
