5-0 out of 5 stars Great little Exchange 2003 Admin book
There have been several of these types of books published by MS Press.Several years ago I purchased the Exchange Pocket Consultant.These books, and the information provided by William Stanek, are great.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
I spend most of my time working with SQL Server, but recently I had to take over and rebuild our Exchange. As I've had good success with Stanek's other books, I picked this one up the week before to help me get up to speed on Exchange, and it did an excellent job. I successfully upgraded, had all our servers up and running by Monday morning and we have an extensive multiple server configuraiton with OWA, wireless, and X.400 MTAs. Exchange Administrator Pocket Consultant is by far the one Exchange book I can't recommend highly enough. Get it, you'll be glad to have it on hand. I refer to this book constantly.

5-0 out of 5 stars MS Exchange Server 2003 pocket consultant

5-0 out of 5 stars Great text on discrete mathematics especially for non-math majors
I used an earlier edition of this textbook in a discrete mathematics class that was required for those of us with a non-CS background enrolled in a MSCS program at Virginia Tech, and I found this to be an excellent and complete book on the subject. If you find yourself enrolled in a class using this book, you can be sure of two things - your instructor knows how to select good textbooks and also it won't matter if your instructor is a good teacher since this book does all of the work for him/her.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Introductory Book
For a subject which has so much potential to be conveyed in complicated and esoteric ways, this book actually manages to present every single chapter in a clear and accessible way, even for those unfamiliar with formal logic.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Discrete Maths Beginners
The author of the book explained the concepts from ground up. The most interesting chapters I have gone through so far are Chapter 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 10. Those chapters definitely build up my mathematical foundation and understanding for Computer Science subjects.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you interested in wanting to understand and implement the IPv6 protocol! If you are, then this book is for you. Author Silvia Hagen, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that covers IPv6 in detail and explains all of the new features and functions.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent discussion of IPv6 protocols
I read and reviewed "IPv6 Network Administration" (INA) in August 2005 and "Running IPv6" (RI) in January 2006.I gave those books 5 stars, so I had high expectations for "IPv6 Essentials, 2nd Ed" (IE2E).INA and RI are very hands-on, implementation-specific books.IE2E is more concerned with explaining protocols and IPv6 features.In this respect, IE2E is the perfect complement to INA and RI.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent 2nd edition contains lots of practical information
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a network layer standard used by electronic devices to exchange data across a packet-switched internetwork and is intended to provide more addresses for networked devices, allowing, for example, each cell phone and mobile electronic device to have its own address. IPv6 is actually capable of supporting5×10^28 addresses for each of the roughly 6.5 billion people alive today.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice information, puts it all in context...
OK...I can see why Microsoft Visual Studio has been such a popular IDE for developers.Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Unleashed from Lars Powers and Mike Snell does a nice job in explaining the value of the latest version of this classic, as well as being an in-depth guide to the feature set...
4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction for novices and intermediate VS2005 developers
This is a pretty impressive book, albeit a bit lengthier than it needed to be.There's tremendous coverage of everything, and I mean everything, in Visual Studio 2005.If you're new to VS 2005 then you'll find this a great guide to getting the most out of your environment.If you're fairly familiar with VS 2005 then you may still find a few goodies hidden away here too.
3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Start, but.......
It's been a long wait to start seeing books about the Visual Studio 2005 environment.You might expect that after such a long wait, the books coming out would provide you with some valuable insights into the usage of VS2005. And, to some extent, this book does provide that.There is very good coverage of the basics....the structure of the VS IDE, how to create forms, how to create webservices, etc.But, after you go through all the work of designing and coding these neat programs, you of course want to be able to roll them out for use.At that point, this book seems to lose its mission, UNLESS you happen to be using the MS Team System, because after spending 16 chapters instructing the reader on how to use a variety of tools available in most versions of Visual Studio, the book starts to discuss production publishing and deployment, but ONLY if you are using MS Team System.

5-0 out of 5 stars Struck by its simplicity and completeness!
I love this book. I am struck by its simplicity. How can a book be so simple, yet so clear in delivering the message, in a topic that is considered to be complicated? Computer architecture is not easy, but with the help of this book I was able to build a very solid foundation when I took the course. And even though it is an introductory book, I still refer to it in more advanced courses and related topics.

5-0 out of 5 stars The usefulness of a text book often depends on the professor...
I found this book to be one of the most clearly written texts on the subject of computer architecture(as opposed to the terse, cryptic Astrom and Wittenmark books for control systems, for example.)
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice and Simpe Introductory Book
I have three of M. Mano's books and this one is the one I've liked the most. I found the author's exposition of the material good on average. I'm using this book for self-study. The book provides a nice overview of computer architecture by focusing on the basic concepts in manner that is not dependent on a particular real-life architecture. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Industrial strength book
Many OO/Patterns books are written as an introduction to the concepts and gloss over the nuances of building software in the real world.This book takes on the nitty gritty of what most developers face day to day. While it does include the gratuitous "student registration" example, this book actually delves into issues such as integrating legacy code.It also actually implements bad design choices before moving on to better solutions, and even these solutions are described in terms of trade-offs between competing forces.Also, by discussing specific Design Patterns in more depth than the cannonical format, I had a few "a-ha" moments when patterns I never quite understood emerged.I would/should have given this book 5 stars, but I had problems with the layout (oversized pages/no margins), the inconsitencies of diagrams (clouds and UML), and the disjoint feeling that the book was a collection of separately written articles, although the author does tie them nicely together.All in all, this is a must have.
5-0 out of 5 stars Required Reading - none better
Absolutely no one writes as well, knows as much, or has as much to say about designing world class programs as Robert Martin. This book should be on every serious programmer's shelf; whatever language you happen to be programming in.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on principled software development
If you always wondered how to find the "right" abstractions - which are nowadays called objects - in your programming.This book gives you an idea what the guiding principles should be.

5-0 out of 5 stars this book led me out of the wilderness of R
After weeks struggling with poor and incomplete online documentation for the R language, this book was a breath of fresh air.The first four chapters alone, which give a broad and practical overview of the R / S / S-Plus environment, are worth the sticker price.In case it wasn't obvious at first (and it wasn't to me), R is the open-source implementation of the S language, and as the authors write in their introduction, "It is similar enough that almost all of the examples in this book can be run under R."
1-0 out of 5 stars just a large collection of examples -- no theory, no algorithm descriptions
I don't understand how this book received so many 5 star reviews.In my opinion, it is a complete waste of money, and totally unusable.It is simply a collection of example uses of S functions, with little or no background statistical theory, motivation, or justification for the methods used, and no descriptions of the specific algorithms underlying the S functions used.This promotes the horrible practice of using "canned" statistical routines without knowing exactly what's going on or how results should be interpreted.It was so frustrating to be forced to use this book for a class at UC Berkeley.Luckily I found a MUCH better book by Chambers and Hastie (from AT&T, where S was invented).I suppose if you're just looking for a large collection of "things you can do with S", this book might be okay for you.Personally, I was so appalled by this book that I sold it as soon as I found an excellent replacement (Chambers and Hastie, "Statistical Models in S".Chambers and Hastie is excellent!I love it!See my review).

Astoundingly broad, while providing specific examples for use by readers.Exactly what I needed to finish my dissertation. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book, right price
Beyer & Holtzblatt have done an excellent job describing the process of contextual design.I'm currently implementing a new company-wide business process, in conjunction with co-workers,and thought it would simply be a good idea to both refresh my memory, gather ideas, and form concepts that would be helpful in the organizational design process.This book has undoubtedly served the purposes I've wanted it to. Again, excellent book - worth the buy.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very good introductory book
This book is exactly what it says, a Beginner's book.Buy it if you are a real beginner but prefer something else even in case you are at the intermediate level.Now if you are a beginner with SQL Server this is a very good book.It is precise, with good examples and very explanatory.If I would have to point out potential future improvements, that would be using the AdventureWorks database for examples instead of the traditional Northwind.Also one more thing would be to explain more the new features of the SQL Server such as: Notification services, XQuery and Service Broker.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Technical Book
I have never written a review about anything.I found this book so enlightening and so well written that I thought I owed it to the author to let others know how much I enjoyed the book.SQL Server 2005 has so many facets that it is hard to begin learning it own your own.This book has come to the rescue.It leads us through a lot of topics in a very logical progression.The examples are very well chosen and very easy to try out.(I actually typed in every single one of them myself--because that is how I learn.)What is incredible is how well the author keeps track of what he has already told us when he advances to a new topic.I am looking forward to the release of his new book "Professional SQL Server 2005 Programming."

5-0 out of 5 stars Great SQL Server Book -- Balanced, Practical, Comprehensive
I purchased this book for 2 reasons. First, I'm in IT and my organization uses quite a few professionally created small/medium SQL Server databases. While I'm familiar with the essentials of SQL Server administration, I wanted to know more about the data side to help me think through problems that arise as well has to help me leverage the data by using it as a source for other applications and custom build databases. I also just started creating small ASP sites and want to use SQL Server 2005 as the back end.

4-0 out of 5 stars A classic
In certain ways, this book has been both a bane and a boon to my career as a computational mathematician.Way back in 1989, I had the mixed experience of taking a course in Numerical Analysis from Brian Smith at the University of New Mexico.Prof. Smith taught that course exclusively from this book (actually, from the 2nd edition).As a college sophomore, I was terribly out of my depth, but I managed to do okay.Later, I had the opportunity to study under Gene Golub at Stanford, although I was certainly not one of his better students :)Naturally, Prof. Golub also taught pretty much exclusively from this book, by the way, he is a gifted mathematician and wonderful instructor, and a real gentleman.Between these experiences, I'd say I became extremely familar with the contents of this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars The standard reference
First, this isn't Numerical Recipes. If you're looking for cut&paste code, you're just looking in the wrong place. This is for people who need a deep understanding of the computational issues, and are going to put a lot of time into an implementation. It's for people who are completely at ease with linear algebra, standard matrix-oriented problems, and dense mathematical notation.
1-0 out of 5 stars Misbound
I ordered this book new but it was misbound, apparently during publication. In my first order, the book was missing the end of Chapter 12, had two indices, and had the final references buried in the middle of another chapter; the replacement book from Amazon had similar faults -- the end of chapter 12 was again missing, there was no index, and chapter four was in the place of the end of chapter 12.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent comprehensive text
To me, this book's greatest strength is instant applicability of theories and recipes presented in it. Virtually all topics in SAR are covered with great quality. There is no hard tie to any particular type of radar signals, which makes it very versatile.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best texts on SAR signal processing
SAR imaging owes a lot to inverse scattering theory, coherence theory, Fourier optics and holography. Luckily, Soumekh comes from an optics background and therefore, is very comfortable with all the optics stuff. He has done an excellent job in presenting different modalities of SAR imaging like stripmap and spotlight and implementing the algorithms in matlab. There is a lot of depth in his book and every time I read it I understand something that I could not understand when I read it last time. I have become a fan of Soumekh. I also attended one of his tutorials based on this book in the SPIE symposium in Orlando Florida.

4-0 out of 5 stars nice applications with heavy computations
Wasn't there once a time, in the depths of the Cold War, when Synthetic Aperture Radar was highly classified? It is still jarring to me to see a book like this, telling all and sundry about the many applications to which it can be directed.

I purchased this book a number of years ago when I started a new job which required me to program using MFC.I had never done any programming for Win32, let alone using MFC (which wraps around the Win32 API).Coming from this state of ignorance, it only took a short time of working with Prosise's book for me to gain enough confidence to start writing MFC programs on my own.
4-0 out of 5 stars Truly beautiful work BUT........
no practical programs. Both "Windows programming" of my boss,Charles Petzold and the book taking draw, game programs to demonstrate.
5-0 out of 5 stars who says it takes longer?
I managed to muddle my way through simple dialog-box based applications with hardly any documentation -- just advice from colleagues. When I got assigned to write a real live multi-threaded, multi-document app, I tried the books lying around the office which had helped me considerably with the simpler apps, but which left me much confused about things like device contexts. Why all of a sudden CClientDC instead of CPaintDC? And what is a DC anyway exactly? They say, "See, if you do this and this, then you can draw an ellipse that wiggles around." So I do that, and then try changing parameters, and am left only able to draw that ellipse. I can't make it purple.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book has changed my life
This is a must-read for any Perl programmer.You are only as good as the teachers you have, and if your teachers use stuff like $|++, you are screwed.In this case, Conway would tell you to Use English;, and then you'd know what a $| is.A sampling of other tips:
5-0 out of 5 stars Books is getting worn out
I came to Perl from C. Some of the good things I learnt in C (using K&R coding style), and some of the bad things, were both dealt with in this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good Coding Methods to Improve Your Perl
I have to admit that I can bristle at books that try to preach, so Perl Best Practices was on a hiding to nothing when I came to review it. I also have to admit to being torn about the author -- after all, he is one of those poor fools who insist on living in cold, unenlightened Melbourne, while I live in vastly superior Sydney. On the other hand, how can I dislike a man who manages to place a quote that involves my favourite character, Lady Bracknell. from my favourite comic play, 'The Importance of Being Earnest,' in the first few pages of his book?

Editorial Review

In this eagerly awaited second edition, Grady Booch draws upon the rich and varied results of those projects and offers improved methods for object development and a new, unified notation.With numerous examples implemented in C++, Booch illustrates essential concepts, explains the method, and shows successful applications in a variety of fields.Booch also givespragmatic advice on a host of issues, including classification, implementation strategies, and cost-effective project management.A two-time winner of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best OO book on the market.
This explains every facet of OO design and analysis.I bought this book years ago and have used it to reinforce many conversations about OO design.What I have found is that the old timer C and COBOL programmers have a very difficult time even thinking like this.This book should be on every developers book shelf.Many of the topics are so common in todays programming disciplines that many students do not even realize they are following it.Many of the patterns and concepts are now so common place in languages like Java and C# that the new developer just thinks this way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great , tough Book, not for beginners or Non C++ programmers
Mixed opinions about the book. The author never claims that beginners can easily understand nor he warrants that you need not know C++. It may take sevaral months or years to read this book. If you say you know this book for 100%, you are only few steps away from Booch's level. His process is great if we have the time, patience and comfort to follow it and apply it. You should have some prior knowledge of OO to understand Booch's language. Of course C++ basics. Though the chapter on Booch Notaion is dated, you still need to read it to follow the remaining chapters. But if you have read UML, booch notation is not tough to understand. I wish he re-writes with additional Java examples and gives some business applications like banking/insurance examples rather than Gardening Sensors and Heaters, and also drop notations chapter and assume that readers know UML. It will be great if he guides us how his process fits into the internet era within tons of frameworks/patternsaround.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic well worth the read
This is a very good book on the subjects of OOA/OOD. It emphasizes concepts and has a strong academic flavor, which I appreciate "accidentally." Although the particular C++ programming language is not the focus, you need to know a least some C++ to understand the example code snippets, which helps you grasp the concepts.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting and detailed
Zalewski offers a nice overview of passive information extraction techniques. Each section covers one approach to the problem of determining something about someone's computer use without being detected. He provides an overview of the technology involved and then talks about how to exploit it.
3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting
This is one of those books that you go HMMMMMM!!! Very Interesting, but most of the things in the book are hard to understand. Also, he jumps around alot like if he's having a conversation rather than an inside manual to Attacks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ages well
This is one of the few information security books that seem to age well: I reread it after over a year, and it still appears to be quite refreshing and up to date. This only goes to show the difference between books written out of genuine passion, and the rest. Big kudos to the author. ... Read more
