3-0 out of 5 stars Cindi did it again? Did she, really?
I recently purchased the "Complete Reference Business Objects XI (R2)" by Cindi Howson.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good overview for the new BO user...
All the basics are covered here.It will be particularly valuable for someone coming from a Crystal 10-or-earlier environment, or from a BusinessObjects 5.x environment.
5-0 out of 5 stars An insightful book
BusinessObjects XI (Release 2): The Complete Reference is not just about how to use this module or that module, it is also about how to maximize your Business Objects (BOBJ) investment.Cindi does a great job explaining how to use many of the modules (she focuses on the core products) but she opens the book with valuable advice on managing Business Objects across your company.BOBJ is not just another little application for a specific project, it, as with many BI tools, can transform your business if you allow it to (and save you alot of money).

5-0 out of 5 stars Take Digital Photography to a New Level
Dan's book has literally changed the way I look at color. His writing style is entertaining and his organization of the book is excellent for what unfolds to be a complex subject. The concept of color perception is hard to grasp. And, it's quite another thing to understand its subtlties when processing digital images. The question always arises: Why don't my image files look as good as what I saw? Dan's book answers that question and many others as it guides the reader/photographer through a few easy steps that will, at a minimum, raise the output quality of images tenfold. For advanced users, there are many gems waiting in this book that will take image control and presentation to another level. If you could have only two digital photography books on the shelf, I recommend this one and Stephen Johnson's On Digital Photography.

2-0 out of 5 stars Doesnt cut to the chase.
This book is a good one......I guess. The reason why I am not sure is that I have had this book for over a year now and I still havent managed to read it completely. Everytime I start reading it, it loses my interest after the third chapter. The authour would have been happier writing poetry about the LAB colour space. He keeps ranting on and on and on about the LAB colour space but when it comes to actually teaching you something new he does it in less than half the pages of the book. It gets to the point where the reader just goes - Ok, LAB is THE colour space to work in, now would you please stop telling me that after every other paragraph? Too much uselss information and very less practical knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read
Much truth is stated in the other reviews here. Although this book can be difficult and wordy, and some of the comments regarding layout and presentation of content are valid, this book is indeed an extremely important work to read in order to gain a comprehensive understanding of the inner workings of Photoshop. I personally found that this book, along with Dan's other great "Professional Photoshop" series, took my skills at post-processing to entirely new levels.

This book is well written and well laid out. It can be used as a reference or as a learning tool for those less knowledgeable on computer stuff. I just advanced from Windows 98 and this made the leap/transition much easier and less confounding.

MY FIRST COMPUTER...(DID NOT HELP THAT THE COMPUTER WAS A LEMON, AND THE COMPANY REPLACED IT)I NOT ONLY DID NOT UNDERSTAND "COMPUTER" LANGUAGE, I DID NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO TURN IT OFF WITH OR WITHOUT POWER-BUTTON.ANY ONE WANTING TO KNOW "HOW TO" SHOULD GET THIS BOOK.LIKE IT SAYS..YOU DON'T SIT AND READ IT LIKE A NOVEL...YOU HAVE A QUESTION...YOU LOOK IT UP IN THE BOOK...NOW IF SOMEONE WOULD COME UP WITH A COMPUTER DICTIONARY FOR ALL THE TERMS ETC. USED IN "COMPUTER LANGUAGE"!!!!BUY THIS...YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

3-0 out of 5 stars Its not a teaching book.
The book for the most part is having a discussion with you about Windows XP.Offering comments or critiques.It is not a book that I would recommend for learning via book.A Few areas actually go into depth.I see it as a PowerPoint presentation discussion about basics XP and should have been sold as.It lacked detail in networking and wireless needed for many user/owner issues. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for the working analog layout and design engineer.
I read the pre-print while still in college and continued to use it as i've progressed in my career. This book is a great collection of analog layout techniques for the real world, no analog IC designer should be without it. I continue to refer to it as i design different kinds of circuits that require alternative layout techniques. Great book overall!

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for all levels of analog IC designers
The most detailed book that I have come across, addressing issues and design practices in analog layout (CMOS and bipolar). It is a combination of extensive layout experience (reflected in easy-to-use thumb rules) and the technical reasoning/nuances leading up to layout decisions. Strongly recommended not only for those starting out with their first design, but also for those who think they have a "feel" of layout practices without really knowing why.
5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Book On Bipolar & CMOS
I own this book, as do several of my co-workers.At the time I purchased it, just after it became available, late 2002 if memory serves, I could find only a few books on the subject, including Dan Clein's 'CMOS IC Layout'.I was most happy with this book to teach analog layout techniques.I judged this book as the best, as it is more detailed, deeper, more technical, broader.(See my review of CMOS IC Layout for more comparisons.)There is a lot of bipolar, but even analog CMOS layout makes use of parasitic bipolar junction tranistors and parasitic field FETs that all high voltage analog mask designers need to deal with.Yes, it is arguably lite on ESD, and, as an experienced analog chip designer, I was sad that I could not find mention that CMOS FET and poly resistor matching is generally scaled by the square root of the area, and alot more engineering level detail could be included in that section.Still, this book is the best for analog layout techniques. ...

I didn't have time to read the entire CISA Official Study guide from ISACA before studying for the test.I read this book cover to cover and used the official 2006 CD study questions from ISACA.I passed on the first try.The cram sheet that comes with the book was great and the notes & alerts that are bolded throughout the book also helped to remember key facts.I highly recommend this book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A really Solid Quality Book
This book and its companion "T-SQL Querying" are two great books, they are not for beginners and in some part requires a full immersion, they are not an easy reading... but at the end you you will have a really deep understanding of the topics they covers. I've found really useful to read it two times, the second one I've noticed that a lot of sentences takes a new light after you've a whole overview of all the topics. A definitively must have. Both !

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book
This is an excellent book that should be in the library of every serious database developer.It is by far the most detailed book that I have ever read on T-SQL programming.There are many cookbooks or sql recipes books but IMHO this book is many steps ahead of the rest of the books.It is well written, with realistic examples and extremely precise.The one thing that I really loved in this book was that for every problem it provides many alternative solutions and explains the advantages of one solution over the other.Again congratulations to the authors for their great job.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a book
As someone who has followed Itzik for a while, I expected quite a bit with this book. In every way, shape, manner and form, it delivered.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good and robust all-around book to SSIS
Even if you did not read some of Kirk's posts at his SQLJunkies Blog or articles at WinITpro you will realize that he knows the stuff he was writing about very well. It is a good book to keep around for your SQL Server support team, because it is kind of a reference and training style book at the same time.
5-0 out of 5 stars excellent resource
Overall the book is an excellent resource for information on SSIS.The book is laid out well, having seperate parts for describing the how tos and the reference catalog.I especially liked the way that the author identified the "key settings" for each task first.

I found the book complicated but I am not a programmer. The book covers alot of concepts which I found hard to grasp. Overall the book is not bad but if you are looking for something that will teach you programming I would not recommend this book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Totally Sucked
I'm taking a college course and this book really bites. Reading it just leaves me in a daze. He goes on and on about how this method won't work and that method won't work which completely covers up what we need to learn. I'm getting 98.18% in the class on term 8 of 10, but it's not due to this book. Unfortuneatley I'm stuck with the book because it's what the school uses. Find another one.

This book starts out well, explaining the topics clearly and without a lot of unnecessary repetition. Unfortunately, the writing style chops and changes throughout the book with the worst written sections being a real chore to plough your way through.

This is by far the best C++ book I have ever read. It is comprehensive, explanations are simple and to the point, and, up-to-date. I am referring to the 4th edition, of course. The earlier editions might be a bit outdated.

Lippman's book contains an introduction into the world of programming in the C++ language. The book goes from simple basics, assuming you know the basic foundations of a programming language, to in depth coverage of C++ programming. It explains both with examples of the programming language and with detailed explanations of what everything in the explanations means and does. This book is an excellent tool for both learning the C++ language and referencing back while you are working on programming something. However, it is not for the every day reader, as it requires a previous knowledge of basic programming language. ... Read more

Cascading Style Sheets can put a great deal of control and flexibility into the hands of a Web designer--in theory.In reality, however, varying browser support for CSS1 and lack of CSS2 implementation makes CSS a very tricky topic.Read more

Cascading Style Sheets
2-0 out of 5 stars Not a book for beginners
I had to buy this book for an Intro to Web Design class and many of my classmates and I agreed that this is not an easy book to follow. It dives into details without laying out the most basics first. In general, the lack of structure and more complicated than necessary language was confusing and maybe one with previous CSS knowledge would know what he's talking about but for a beginner it was quite unhelpful.

4-0 out of 5 stars More of a Tutorial than a Definitive Guide
If you are not using Cascading Style Sheets in your own HTML documents, you should consider them.They will save you hours of tedious formatting time.CSS allows you to control every aspect of the formatting and display of your website, without having to "touch" each page individually.

I bought these thinking that Microsoft would be in the best position to write a training kit to prepare for the certification tests, since they are, after all, Microsoft tests.Big mistake.If I hadn't used the Transcender practice tests also, I would have gotten a rude awakening at the test center.The MS books have some decent reference information, but they don't prepare you for the tests.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best of the easiest, but being dated is showing through
As a perennial instructor of the Programming Languages (PL) course, I have been using Sebesta for a long, long time, having used Pratt's texts before that.There are two categories of books for the PL course:easy and hard.The hard ones snow you with formalism and seem to be proud of the fact that they don't provide motivation.The easy ones are typically boring collections of miscellany with no clear coherence.
5-0 out of 5 stars great comparative analysis of major languages
Sebesta's book is wonderful for his comparative analysis of several common languages. A typical computing book focuses on one language. Which is fine if you need to code in it. But Sebesta lets you step back and see, at a metalanguage view, what characterises a successful language.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good if the professor actually teaches
Ok, let me elaborate on that.The professor that taught using this book has now officially been fired from the university... Yeah, that said I can say that this book is not bad... unless your professor doesn't teach.It really feels like a supplement to your education in a sense, not a source of education.I believe that a really good textbook can essentially replace a professor if in need, I don't feel that this book does that, though it is a good book to supplement a poor to excellent education.It gives you the basic overview of the concepts but does not really go in depth with good intuitive explanations of everything.There are certainly topics that I wish it covered too.Overall, it is a good supplement to a poor and better education... but for horrendous education, it doesn't save a student. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Be Any Easier!
Just wanted to say that I bought this book with no prior experience with Flash or Studio 8. I found the various modules of Studio 8 confusing so I decided to concentrate on just one and that being Flash 8. Hands on Training is the way to go. Gonzalez made learning the program easy. However, after going through the book, remember that you have to do your part too. Practice! Practice! Practice! Just reading the book or any book for that matter and then putting it on the shelf won't do you any good. Very happy with this book and will buy more HOT titles in the future.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for a beginner like me...
I had thumbed through several Flash 8 books in the local bookstore before deciding on this one. What drew me to it was that the examples progress from the basics into an end-result project. You can eliminate chapters if need be with no bearing on the final project as the necessary example files are provided on the disc for each chapter.

3-0 out of 5 stars More high-level concepts and less hands-on guidance
This is certainly a good book for getting introduced to most high-level architectural concepts related to Network security, cryptography, mandatory/multi-level access control etc. From a application development perspective, this book falls short on how to build architecure, design and implement them into your business applications which ultimately meets the end-user. The author justifies the high-level concepts well enough from a generalist perspective, but the industry-standards from OASIS leans towards standards-based application security protocols..which pushes a developer/architect like me to take those suggestions first and how to apply them in real world.The book also does'nt address on how-to build security for emerging application architectures based on Service-oriented architecture (SOA), Identity Management, Net-centric Federated applications. As a developer/architect using Java or Microsoft .NET or open-source based distributed applications, I need guidance on how to implement the recommended concepts (in the book) for example using biometrics or smartcards for building multi-factor access control at my application-level...unfortunately I don't find any answers for real-world implementation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best security book on the market
This book is a must own and a must read.Ross Anderson may tweak people's noses on occassion...but usually because they need tweaking.Get this book now.Really. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good things, bad things...
Good:
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but too much fluff...
I've been a Server OS administrator since 1991, starting with Novell 3.12. I started with OS2, Novell and then Windows NT in 1995 at the second largest retailer in the US and I've worked my way through NT 3.5 to 2003. I bought Minasi's NT 4.0 books and thought they were the greatest thing going, but I was still green and the other publishers were not up to speed. Now I own the Windows Server 2003 books Inside Out, Unleashed and Administrators Companion. I have read much of Minasi's 2003 book, but I doubt I'll buy it. I have to say that Minasi's writing style now forces serious administrators to waste a great deal of time wading through the fluff. His book is one of, if not the thickest and it's not because of the technical information. Just like his articles in magazine publications, his writing is oriented towards new or amateur administrators. I think if you have 2 of, or the 3 books I mentioned previously, you can skip Minasi's Server 2003 book. The single area where Mark has an edge over the other books is his discussion of compatibility with older, downlevel or non-MS workstation client OSes such as DOS, Mac, Workstation, etc. This same information was covered in his earlier NT 4.0 and Win2000 books, so if you have any of them, you're ok there.

5-0 out of 5 stars A response to Joaquin Menchaca from an Apple Certified Tech Coordinator
You know, there are times I despair at the treatment of Macintoshes in Windows-centric books. Obsolete information, badly written explanations of Mac technology, and general "macs can't do that" comments. I'll flip through Windows books at the store and shudder at the nonsense they spread about Macs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book
As I was told by my instructor about this book, and it is true, this is a very good book about DSP.I actually bought a lot of DSP books before, but this one is the best, I strongly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars The book is fantastic
I wish I had this book when I took my discrete systems class in college.Maybe then I would have understood what the professor was trying, but failed, to teach us.Thanks to Lyon's book, I now am beginning to understand how to use the FFT to actually analyze a real signal.I understood FIR filters pretty well but the book's helping me a lot to understand how to use the Z transform to analyze IIR filters.The book doesn't just give you the equations, he explains what they mean and that's what I like about the book.I am even beginning to grasp some of the DSP Tricks in Chapter 13.I highly recommend this book to anyone trying to learn digital signal processing.

4-0 out of 5 stars needs problems to be a useful textbook
Lyons presents a solid treatment of DSP, from first principles. Many important concepts are clearly explained, like IIR and FIR filters. Plus transforms like Hilbert. And the many moves back and forth between the time and frequency domains. You need to get comfortable with these ideas, and the text does not skimp on offering comprehensive details.
