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).

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference on Linux subsystems, not a book for starters
This book is not for Linux (kernel) newbies but for those who already know their way around the kernel and seek detailed info on certain parts of it. This book has some good overviews on different subsystems of the Linux kernel. Some sections, like USB, have been expanded since the second edition of this book. I would have liked to see a section on the new 2.6 scheduler.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not useful for a normal coder looking to learn Unix drivers.
If you are trying to learn how to write Linux Device drivers from scratch, this is probably not the book for you. I believe I am somewhat C/C++ savvy, and I expect sample code that is less than 10 lines of code to compile correctly.
1-0 out of 5 stars Don't even read the free online version
This book was so badly written that I just couldn't help writing my first review on Amazon. I NEVER bothered writting reviews.

5-0 out of 5 stars essential for device drivers and other NT internals
This is an amazing book. It's not a tutorial for a building device driver. For device driver developers, it is an essential reference for understanding NT's kernel system. This book is also great for those who are not building device drivers but want to understand the NT kernel. The chapters on virtual memory, I/O architecture and I/O managers are totally worth the price of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have
If you are writing Windows Device Drivers, this is one of 3 books you absolutely must have. Buy it.

Don't waste your money on it like I did.
3-0 out of 5 stars An Organized Introduction
This book is a more concise, better organized version of the DDK documentation, minus the reference material.It does a good job of painting a picture of driver architecture and gets you familier with the terminology involved.However, it does not provide much insight or real-world tips, and in fact the regurgitation of Microsoft definitions and propoganda gets a little tiresome.This book does not go into much detail and is not a reference book.After you've read most of this book you can easily rely on the DDK documentation and never flip through these pages again.

This is an *essential* tool for anyone using S-Plus.The book is well laid out, supplementing and complementing the manuals.In addition, the authors provide libraries that expand many of the routines in S-Plus.Ifyou use S-Plus and do not program directly in S yourself, this book shouldbe on your shelf.

4-0 out of 5 stars good introduction to using S-Plus
This is a fantastic book on using S-Plus.I would have given it 5 stars had its treatment been given in a more clear way.Nonetheless the S language is well presented and many statistical analyses are sampled usingS-Plus.In fact, this is also a strong applied stats book, with S codegiven for each topic.

3-0 out of 5 stars Developing Windows NT Device Drivers
No good for windows 2000 or XP, otherwise very good and informative. Code available from authors sites, but buggy (on XP anyway). Shame it's out of date, if a legacy driver will do you then this book is very good.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Savior
I'm a high school intern and I knew nothing about drivers (other than installing them) 3 months ago.Now I have completed 2, an ISA and Parallel port driver.This book is really great for people new to the DDK and need a good foundation.The examples are clear, and the pace of the book is pretty slow (but steady).Once you get past the first 9-10 chapters you can pretty much skim for parts you need.The tips are especially helpful, as to why C++ OOP isn't suitable, to why 2 computers are absolutely necessary.Even if you plan on making WDM drivers, this book will be helpful.Oney's WDM book is really useless for beginners, and the DDK almost has no redeeming value, other than being very very heavy (oh, wait thats not good either).The net is surprisingly lacking of driver programming pages. Get this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Style and No Code Download/Disk - Still Somewhat Useful
This book is a useful reference for the NT/Win2k driver developer, but it has a number of disappointing flaws which make it less practical. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars full of errors
get Oney's book instead - it's more readable and the examples actually work...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so usefull
I've found this book chaotic, and not very informative. It doesn't cover many topics like DMA and Direct I/O mode. I think this book can be more useful after reading any book covering NT drivers in details.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great entry point for beginners.
I needed to write a Windows device driver to do parallel port I/O on NT machines and handle hardware interrupts. The DDK is incomprehensible to novices. The Viscarola / Mason book is a great reference, but is not a good how-to. Oney has lots of important information on lots of important topics, but you can quickly get lost in tons of details that don't apply to the task at hand. Chris Cant gets it right in his book. Hispedagogical strategy is to actually create a very small device driver, and then study it as you layer on the complexity, and not hit you with it all at once. It exactly addressed my primary needs. Its drawback is that it is not very detailed, nor is it a good advanced reference, so the ideal solution is to get all three books, and use them each for their own strength. But start with Chris Cant's. (He also includes a couple of very useful utilities, one of which is a marvelous debugging tool.) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars discovery? true.
I am a CS student and had to make my first contact with programming through this book. The title is right. You can learn C using this book by discovering other ways of looking for information (other books, internet). Examples are terrible, theory is messed up and put in large clusters. How can you teach a beginner if ALL the information about a particular feature is put together? The basic stuff and the advanced together? Hey, I am a teacher who actually has a few years of experience in school, this is not the way to teach.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book for beginning C programmers
This book is very well written for beginning C programmers. The topics are clear and easily read.I think it is more concerned with the understanding of topics for the beginner rather than the best coding techniques.An experienced C programmer would probably not use some of the programming techniques in this book, but it serves well for people who want to learn C.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good teach-yourself C book
I am using an older edition (I think the 1st) to teach myself C.So far, (along with the mingw32 compiler) I have been able to write several small matrix programs and a small statistical package, soley from using the resources in the text.I started on page 1 with no previous study of C or C-like languages.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One-of-a-kind book not supplanted by more recent texts
This book is written in a very approachable style that starts off with a very simple software-only character driver and builds up to more complicated hardware combinations. The code fragments are C code of course, but are preceded where necessary by pseudocode to give a better idea of the underlying algorithm. Complete code is given for the drivers, but this book is not really about programming as such. It probably tells you more about hardware than most programmers ever wanted to know, unless they were asked to write a device driver- which this book presumes you are. The book is biased towards IBM PC interfacing (8250 UART, LPT1, etc) but not exclusively. More importantly the principles remain the same and the author always seeks to explain things and make you think about what is happening. Furthermore the book is based on Unix version 3 (SVR3) with particular reference to SCO Unix, with only the last chapter introducing the principles of SVR4. However streams are treated more thoroughly with separate chapters on a loop-back driver and a rewrite of the terminal driver for COM1. After a general explanation, the book is divided into chapters covering individual drivers in increasing levels of complexity. There are character drivers for a test data generator, an A/D converter, a line printer, a more complicated test data generator, a raw disk driver, and a tape driver. Block drivers cover a test data generator, RAM disk, and SCSI disk. There is a terminal driver for COM1 and streams drivers for a loop-back driver and COM1. Finally, there is a chapter on installation and one on Zen and Driver Writing. The installation chapter refers you to your system manual for specific details, but explains how device installation is meant to work. The Zen chapter is general philosophy on when to write a driver and problems in debugging. Of particular note is the assertion that it is easy to write drivers provided that you have "..a mind unbound to conventional hang-ups about determinism, causal theory, logic, and the expectation that any piece of hardware will work the way its designers described." There have been more recent books on writing device drivers for various flavors of Unix, but none is as instructive and detailed as this book. You may need an additional text on device drivers for the particular flavor of Unix you are working with, but this book is still essential.
5-0 out of 5 stars Plain English, thoughtful flow of topics
What I'm appreciating about this book is the simplicity and the vigor of the writing. It's *really* easy to make this topic sound really complicated. Pajari's approach lays out as few issues at one time as possible, then adds gradually to the mix. The early parts are not taxing, but the pace does pick up.5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Examples, and Much More

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is a must have.
This book contains important information about OS/2s device driver architecture whos value cannot be calculated.3-0 out of 5 stars Has some value, but could be a lot better
This book is the only one of its kind, and if it had competition, it probably wouldn't do as well as it has.It does explain some of the basic topics of OS/2 driver programming, but more than half of the book is a straight copy from the DDK, which is available for a free download.It covers a wide range of driver types, but not in great depth.The biggest drawback is that it does not use the standard DevHelp library, so it doesn't conform to the DDK documentation....I recommend that if you use this book, you should cross-reference it with more modern discussions that can be found for free online.The good news is that even though it's several years old, all the information still applies, as there have been very few changes to the OS/2 driver model. ...

I sure wish I'd had this book when I started out writing drivers, it would have saved me a ton of time and grief.I too, wish there were more information on specific driver types, such as soundcards, but that stuff isin the DDK anyway, once you know what to look for -- and this book willtell you that, and a lot quicker and better than the DDK will.Any of theother required tools will tell you how to install or load a VXD, so I don'tconsider that a big problem.I could wish that this book also coveredWindows NT, but was extemely glad for the plug and play coverage, whichother information sources obfuscate badly.
