5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction and an excellent educational perspective
This book is excellent for a novice in AI. Chapter by chapter - though chapters vary in thoroughness and detail - the book illustrates AI techniques by family by accessibly presenting the problems that motivate the techniques, and the logic applied to implement them (pseudo-code).
4-0 out of 5 stars wide range of techniques, including neural networks
The authors furnish a voluminous and up to date survey of AI. Covering the gamut of ideas and computational techniques common to the field. Unsurprisingly, there is plenty of discussion about formal logic methods and how to develop inferences in a manner doable by a computer. This is expanded into describing ontologies and how to find knowledge in a learning process. All of these are hard topics that try to attack a fundamentally difficult problem.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for its overviews and historical notes
This book was used in both my undergraduate and graduate courses in artificial intelligence.It is a very readable book, and an enormously useful reference.I believe they at least do a cursory overview of the most critical concepts in AI, and if they don't, there are usually great references at the end of the chapter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Is Knuth a god?
I think Donald Knuth likes to write books very much.
4-0 out of 5 stars Yeah, but is it art?
Twenty five years ago, after five years of experience programming scientific applications (mostly math stuff, not much real programming beyond algorithms) I began a job programming business applications.At that time, there was very little general communal knowledge about very basic stuff we take for granted today like searching, sorting, memory allocation, data structures...
5-0 out of 5 stars A classic work where C, Java, ... do not have its place
The Art of Computer Programming is a classic work. The three first volumes cover only the basic core of programming techniques. There are enough exercices, with solutions, to keep you busy for the rest of your life. Several reviewers expressed a dislike at the MIX language used in these three volumes. But there is usually a pseudo-code description of the algorithm that can readily be converted to whatever "X" language you prefer or happen to enjoy on a particular day. I would never see Java (ouch!), C, Pascal, as being appropriate for this work. It would simply ruined the whole work. These languages have a semantics that is too imprecise. Knuth has gone one step further of including pseudo-code by providing precise code in a machine language that he has precisely described. What is needed is a new machine language closer to today's machine; and Knuth is working on that...but you will not find it in these three volumes.

Do you need to edit and organize your photos? If you do, then this book is for you. Author Barbara Brundage, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that is intended to make learning Elements easier by avoiding technical jargon as much as possible, and explaining why and when you'll want to use certain features in the program.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book to learn MS Project 2003 AND scheduling techniques
I purchased this book as part of the "Microsoft Office Project 2003 Orange Belt Self Study Package" from IIL (Institute for International Learning). For those who understand the basic concepts of project management, the book is extremely educational as it will teach you the basics of MS Project, as well as various project scheduling techniques that you may not have been aware of.
5-0 out of 5 stars Reveals Many MSP Issues-but Not for Beginners
This book will not teach you how to perform 'work planning' (or scheduling) and it will not teach you the basics of how to use MS Project.I have at least 5 thick books that do that, and I consider most of them useless.I have been managing IT projects since the 1980s, and have used MS Project (MSP) since the early 1990s. I have spent many late hours struggling with its confusing and misleading and Poorly documented) functions that do not always do what you expect (or the help/manual says)it will do.I particulary dislike it's seemingly random choice to recalc a critical path, and changes dates and durations based only on resources.In June, my team (an experienced set of IT project managers)took advanced MS Project training from the "International Institute for Learning". All 15 people who attended the training said it was the best MS project training they had ever had!
5-0 out of 5 stars Solid book
I bought this book off to help me with scheduling.I found it to be both comprehensive and fun; Using examples at the end of each chapter to reinforce the learning.I tend to refer back to it whenever I'm planning a new project.This book was well worth my time and energy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for just about any level programmer looking to do ASP.NET the right way
I'd like to give Marco a personal thank you for writing the lastest book with the beer house sample. I have learned quite a lot, compared to other .net books. The concepts in this book work quite a bit better than the standard asp.net 2.0 books, where they discuss everything ASP.NET capable of, but give no real world implementation or design pattern. I have purchased 7 books on asp.net 2.0 alone, and wasted quite a bit of time reading through them. This book has given me more concrete knowledge and help building real applications for businesses than I ever could have found in the others.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is a fantastic book. The layout of each chapter and the book in it's entirety is exceptional. It doesn't go into too much details about specific content but rather gives the reader a greater appreciation for the website development process.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Puts it all together
This book presents by far the best sample site/case study available for ASP.NET 2.0.Most/all of the primary ASP.NET 2.0 features are utilized.Unlike with the minimalist Microsoft sample apps, design alternatives and decisions are thoroughly explained.

5-0 out of 5 stars Needed to do some Refresher Training
I have experience in HTML and CSS; however, I had not dealt with them in some time (five years or so). I needed to find a book that would get to the basics, yet at the same time NOT be so exhaustive that I would find myself dozing. Can anyone blame me for not wanting to be bored to death by wordy descriptions?
5-0 out of 5 stars very good book
this is a very good book for beginners.TSTC Waco is using it for the intro class in the webmaster 2 year degree program. Covers HTML , XHTML, AND CSS STYLE SHEETS in detail. A lot of screen shots showing what the code should look like.Which, for a beginner is VERY IMPORTANT! If you do not know the code how else would you know that you got it right if something small is wrong.The only fault I have with the book compared to my first HTML book is there is not a quick reference card printed on the back cover.This is a minor thing but is handy for quick review.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Learning Tool for the non-technical
This is a true learner's guide to building standards-based Web pages.It includes a lot of information on common HTML and CSS traps and pitfalls as well as why common conceptions about style are often wrong.To help the reader actually learn the material in a fun and friendly manner it includes a lot of puzzles and exercises and other material that make it a joy to learn.This is truly a guide for the non-programmer that will have them quickly up to speed on how to design and build a web site.One of the virtues of this particular book is that the authors relate common problems and frustrations of users and how to avoid them in your website.

4-0 out of 5 stars MySQL at its best
Paul DuBois is an excellent author. I bought his book, MySQL, about 4 years ago and used it until it was out of date. This new edition proves once again that he is one of the best authors and authorities in this field.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great book; unethical publisher
This book is excellent. The author writes about programming in a clear and concise way that makes Java make sense. While Java may not be the simplest language to start with, it is widely used throughout the industry and provides a solid stepping stone to other languages. Savitch provides many examples of code and explains how it works, step by step. Too many programming books assume the reader will fill in missing pieces. Finally, an author who fills them in for us!
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Written Java Book
The author, Savitch, writes some of the best-written, easy-to-read computer language books.The fourth edition is a concisely-written, enjoyable book with excellent examples and coverage of Java 5.0, which is the newest, latest revision as of January '06.
5-0 out of 5 stars 1st edition review
I have just completed (i need only two more chapters) the first of edition of this book.While not as exhaustive as the the edition for sale here I can tell you the author is good at what he does.I haven't decided if I am going to purchase this edition but let me say that the author's prose style reminds me of the best computer programming books I read while I was an undergraduate at the University of Florida in the early 90's.This book is suitable for teaching a first or second year class of computer science students at a university.Unlike those silly "Teach yourself Java programming in 24 hours" this is the kind of programming book that really teaches you something. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A managerial overview of agile methodologies
A complete overview of the most important agile methodologies available. The authors have done a great job gathering, analyzing and summarizing the most important facts concerning XP, Scrum, Evo and UP. You will be told about pros and cons, success factors, risks to consider and implementation flavors (common customized implementation practices). Just don't get confused about the purpose of the book, because you won't be able to implement the methodologies just by reading it. You'll be into a better position to take a more informed decision about the methodology that best fits your development team. For the implementation process you'll surely need extra references focused on each specific methology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great summary of agile methods.
The first portion of the book provides a good and relatively specific overview of the rationale behind agile methods, as compared to waterfall.Great material if you need to write a proposal to move to an agile method.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview to the topic
I found this to be an excellent review to the topic of agile development.It methodically covers Scrum, XP, UP and Evo, and unlike other computer books, provides detailed references and a bibliography, so you can see how the author got to his conclusions. ... Read more

I am a self-taught novice graphic/web designer and I bought this book hoping to be able to incorperate some flash into my works. I downloaded the free 30 day trial of Flash 8 Pro and started working on this book. It worked like a charm. I am half way through the book and I already feel that I have a decent amount of knowledge in Flash.

this book is excellant.the author does a great job of teaching css by providing clear examples which build upon one another. he combines what and how with why and makes it fun in the process. this is a very efficient learning tool. i'll be sure to buy his coding book when it comes out.great job!

5-0 out of 5 stars Probably the best CSS book I've ever read.
I've never written a book review before but feel compelled to comment on this one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great, Straight-Forward, No Fluff
This book is an incredible guide to writing Web code the right way from the design side. Most websites are so poorly coded, and most texts I've used to make sense of using XHTML/CSS have fallen short. But Stylin' delivers real-world, extremely useful examples like the drop down menus. You will walk away from this book understanding clearly how to structure your pages with clean, standardized markup (XHTML) and how to style them perfectly across clients (CSS). Imagine (for example) a dynamic dropdown menu built solely from a super-clean ul list!

3-0 out of 5 stars very technical
The book was ok but it made for very difficult reading; it was very technical.I had to purchase it for class.Luckily I had a good professor who could break down the concepts more clearly.I would, however, suggest that Devry get an easier book to digest next time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Strategic Management of Technology and Innovation
This book includes many good papers and many hi-tech business cases associated with technology and innovation management. Some of them are a little old but still useful to understand strategic management. If you have learned general management and marketing and want to get a view of the management of technology and innovation, this is worthwhile reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars a useful collection of case studies and key papers
This book offers a large number of case studies from the areas of research and technology development in various industries. It covers most the important concepts of technology management such as "corecompetencies". It follows the traditional model employed in businessschools: learning from others' experiences by means of case studies.Particularly relevant are the sections on "heavyweight teams". ... Read more

I considered myself an advanced Photoshop user until I read this book. Chapters on selection(8,9,10) and compositing (11,12,13) are simply amazing. If this book cannot satisfy your hunger for truly advanced concepts and techniques, no others on the market will. If you want to be a truely advanced -expert level Photoshop user, anything else is uncivilized. Oh my.

I love this book's layout (an ironically unusual benefit for design books), simple terms, practicality and real-world examples that allow you to follow along step by step.

This book would help anyone seeking advanced techniques in Photoshop. It is well written in clearly understandable language. Katrin Eismann's other book, Restoration and Retouching is another example of an extremely helpful book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb instructional book for my needs
I bought this book for two reasons (a) I needed an overview of IP and (b) I wanted to examine different pattern analysis algorithms with a practical twist.On both counts, as an non-IP researcher, I was very satisfied.The book is very well laid out, so well in fact that it would put to shame many of its rivals.It served my needs.I can't comment on whether it will meet the needs of a broader community.I would certainly recommend it based on my experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Useful
This book educates the reader in image processing and MATLAB.While I am experienced in both, I found the book to be an extrememly useful reference book for projects involving image compression and image representation.The book offered practical descriptions and useful code for computing the fast wavelet transform.It was especially useful in describing how the edges should treated.This is a big issue that other textbooks gloss over.I had never seen it described in a textbook, and it was described so well.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best of its kind.
If you want to get up to speed on Matlab and plan to use it for image processing, this book is a must.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly great book on algorithm design
I use this book in a course and I am immensely pleased with it. I must point out, though, that this is a very theoretical book. There is not much code and the authors use rather high-level psuedo code for what's there. However, it is great at explaining concepts and what the generic algorithms actually do. So it does its job quite brilliantly. If you need more code, you might want to pick up the Sedewick books, although the code could be better commented and organized if you asked me.

3-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Wordy
This book is not concise; also the pseudocode syntax used in the book is annoying.
5-0 out of 5 stars dealing with NP completeness
The text offers an interesting blend of rigour and informality. The numerous proofs in each chapter have that rigour. Yet what may be more important is how the text remains accessible to a primarily undergraduate audience.

5-0 out of 5 stars You haven't mastered CSS until you've read this book.
After going through a round of book buying on Amazon (mainly Ajax and PHP books), I originally decided that this would be a 'glancer' at Barnes and Nobles. Having spent over a year designing full CSS w3c-compliant sites, I though there wasn't too much more I could learn on the subject. A day later I spent over an hour at B&N reading this book and then decided to purchase it. It's that great.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not a good book
I've gone thru half the book, and I'm very disapointed to say the least.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Step Beyond the Basics
To my web designer friends who are ready to move beyond DreamWeaver/GoLive and start doing things the "right" way, I have been recommending Dan Cederholm's "Web Standards Solutions" as the best beginner's CSS and HTML guide. I also tell them that they should buy this book, CSS Mastery, at the same time and start reading it once they have absorbed all of W.S.S.

Editorial Review

The PHP server-side scripting language and the MySQL database management system (DBMS) make a potent pair. Both are open-source products--free of charge for most purposes--remarkably strong, and capable of handling all but the most enormous transaction loads. Both are supported by large, skilled, and enthusiastic communities of architects, programmers, and designers. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars All their examples work!
Excellent book. All their examples work and they describe the differences that can be encountered in different recent versions of PHP. Pretty much all you need is here, and the whole book comes on the CD so you can take it with you when you are travelling.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read and Reference
For beginners this book is very worthwhile. I bought 2 "PHP and MySQL" books from Amazon and I haven't even opened the other book. Whenever I need code examples or a reference this book provides me with the answers.
4-0 out of 5 stars helpful to get up to speed on php
a lot of this ends up being skippable but if you're looking to get started with php, this tutorial/reference type approach is pretty helpful. ... Read more
