5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
Just the book for the java hungry community.For those that are pressed for cash and cannot afford the book just yet you can visit the java dot sun website to download a pdf version of this book with minor cosmetic changes dealing with copyright.The integrity of the book is otherwise intact.The directory to look for is docs->books->jls.Cheers

5-0 out of 5 stars For the guts of Java, there's nothing better...
Are you the type that has to know the "why" and "how" behind how a language behaves?Then this is the book you need...The Java Language Specification, Third Edition by James Gosling, Bill Joy, Guy Steele, Gilad Bracha.Provided you're buying it for the right reason, there's nothing close to it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Must-have for the Java system developer
This is it, the complete and authoritative definition of the Java programming language. This edition covers the Java language up to 1.5, so it gives a full description of generics and type parameters, boxing and unboxing, enums, annotation, and all the latest. If you develop Java language tools - debuggers, compilers, etc. - you simply must have this book. If you care about Java details that much, you must have the newest edition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Advanced Crypto for the college mind.
This very detailed work is not for the light hearted. It's an in depth look at the mathmatics behind cryptography. If you're looking for a book to help you program then look for Applied Cryptography by Bruce the crypto king instead. If you're looking for something to help you learn cryptoanalysis and how to break codes then this is the first step.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic traditional reference
The Chapter 14 - Efficient Implementation - shows several multiple precision algorithms. They are very easy to understand and implement under any microprocessor. It is a very good complement to the book set written by Donald Knuth (The Art of Computer Programming, Volumes 1-3 Boxed Set), another fantastic traditional reference.

4-0 out of 5 stars A very detailed book, but not for everyone.
This is a fairly strong book on crypto, with heavy detail on the math involved.The upside is that the second chapter is devoted to most of the important mathematical theory you'll need to understand for the rest of the book.The downside?That chapter tries to cover just about the same breadth of information as a semester long course in Number Theory.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a superb book
For serious designers Dreamweaver is without doubt the best web design program out there. PHP is the most powerful server-side language available to date. I needed to produce my first shopping cart site... so I bought Cartweaver PHP -a cracking little value for money extension, but I needed to configure my machine. This book showed me, in plain English, how to install PHP on my computer (Mac or PC), how to set up a testing server on my own machine and how to install MySQL. It also taught me the basics of PHP and took me through some simple PHP exercises (e.g. form-to-mail) - it's not as difficult as you think! and if you're going to use commercial PHP scripts on your sites you should really have some understanding of what you are uploading to the server... it also taught me some very useful CSS tips and alerted me to some fantastic enhancements in Dreamweaver 8.

This is the my first review on Amazon. This book is so nicely written. The examples are short and precise. All the Advanced topics are covered in a great way. Highly recommend it to all developers who want to gain more expertise.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lacks depth
I bought the book because the table of contents showed that the book covered the topics comprehensively. However, there is a serious lack of depth. I think the book is good for students who are just learning about linux and embedded systems, but not as useful for the more serious and experienced developer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative and useful
I take this opportunity to congratulate authors on the job WELL DONE. This book emphasizes on "programming" aspect of embedded Linux which is missing from earlier books like one from karim yaghmour. The topics such as MTD, real time, embedded graphics, uclinux are presented very clearly and in detailed manner. Overall, it's GOOD. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Gem, in simple terms.
I revisited this book after about a year, and took the time to really read the first 100 pages. In particular, the author's introduction to OOP via C# classes as data structures first, and asmore complex objects containing data and methods second, helped me really understand this concept --- maybe for the first time. 5-0 out of 5 stars books
I bought "C# for Dummies" for myself and "C# and Game Programming" for my son.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for VB programmers
Although the "Dummies" title implies a "Beginner" book, this book falls into the "Beginner to Intermediate Developer" range.This is a good book for Visual Basic developers who want to make the conversion to C# or for the beginner. Like all Dummies series, there are ample examples and the author does a great job of explaining the C# language. Windows forms are covered in Chapter 17 and 18 but there is no discussion about Web development or using C# with Active Server Pages (ASP).Read more

This book is well written and laid out.Whether or not you are a beginner or advanced user coming to vi, this is a valuable tool for getting the most out of vi.
5-0 out of 5 stars THE VI reference
This book is the reference for those wanting to understand the mysteries of Vi. Almost all Unix based systems typically have a variant of the Vi editor installed, even when the system is in a limited use state, therefore an understanding of this no-nonsense editor is crucial if you want to administer or recover your system. This makes the Vi the editor to know, and this book guides you through the basics to more advanced "tricks" used by the guru's. Even if you only plan on casually using Vi, you can't lose having this book in your library. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Beginners Book
With only a few months of OO programming about 6 years ago, I needed a book to take me from the beginning again. This book delivered. I found I have needed to read some chapters several times to 'get it', particularly chapters 7 & 8. I like the way he writes an example and then steps you through it, breaking down the code into sections. It was easy to read and easy to refer back to. I still have a couple of chapters to review and I'll be looking for more of his books.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a programmer or novice programmer with little or no object-oriented programming experience? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Jesse Liberty and Brian MacDonald, have done an outstanding job of writing a second edition of a primer on the C# 2005 language specifically, and object-oriented software development in general.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not a beginner book! for novices!!
I am sorry but this book is not a novice or begiiner book on C#.

5-0 out of 5 stars Programming Knowledge Cornucopia
An excellent book covering all of the essential areas of knowledge necessary to become a professional programmer and should be required reading for those without a formal computer science background.The examples are brief but rich in content.Major topics covered include: style, algorithms, design, implementation, optimization, interfaces, debugging, testing, performance, portability, and notation (languages).Each topic is discussed with emphasis on content and application of knowledge, not a lot of extraneous verbiage, just simple, solid content.This text is also great as a quick refresher for information on lists, hash tables, trees, algorithmic design and implementation, and good interface design rules.Provided are good "rules of thumb" for debugging and thoughts on portability along with ideas for writing code generators.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of those books that will make you a better programmer
Simplicity, Clarity and Generality are indeeds the qualities of fine code. This is one of the few books that strives to make you a better programmer. Most books are about how-to, this is a book that goes beyond that and gives you information that can make you better. The other two books that do this for me are "Programming Pearls" by Jon Bentley and "Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code" by Martin Fowler.

Editorial Review

You can find bigger books about C, but you won't find one as authoritative or helpful as this reference manual. Harbison and Steele have now gone through four editions and are beginning to cover language differences which can surprise the experienced C coder moving to C++.As always, the authors do an excellent job of explaining what's standard and what it replaces. No hairy syntax has been omitted, so this volume can make wending one's way through obfuscated code, if not pleasant, at least less miserable. Whether you learned C from Kernighan or some massive tome, you'll want this volume as your day-to-day reference. And you won't mind buying a new edition once in a while, because you'll have worn the old one out by then. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Leaves something to be desired
As a Web professional, I'm always interested in reviewing the work of my peers, seeing what I can learn from them. I visited the author's Web site and perused his portfolio since a look inside the book wasn't available here, and I was more than a little disappointed. The integration of his CSS/XHTML is flawed and it just doesn't display the way it should on the major operating system/browser combinations that it should. With this in mind, any advice from the doesn't hold much water for me. I was most interested in this book as a source of inspiration, and have found the Taschen series much more to my liking.

4-0 out of 5 stars useful book - good "jumping off point"
I was particularly interested in the templates found on the CD-ROM. As others have noted, these designs are created with nested tables. The art is created in Photoshop. Having "picked" at a couple of templates, I'm now seeing where the various images are and how to manipulate them. I wish, however, that the authors had used layers rather than templates. I'm finding that the best way (for me) to utilize these templates is as a basis for a new design by starting with a blank HTML page and replacing the tables and with layers.

3-0 out of 5 stars it's a little much
For learning how to program from scratch, i wouldn't recommend this book. It's to fast through javascript. Yet I haven't read all 1000 pages yet, that's what I've taken from it so far. Seems good for asp and stuff like that though.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great all-in-one, but too Microsoft-centric
This book overall is the best general introduction to website development technologies that I've found. I'm coming from the perspective of a professor who needed to teach HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and any server-side scripting language to my students. After deciding to use PHP, I loked for several appropriate books, and I did find numerous good options, but at the very most, any given book would only cover two of the technologies I needed. Thus, I would end up with at least three or four books that had way more than necessary and would cost up to $200 for one course.
1-0 out of 5 stars Deitel Considered Dangerous
I was unfortunately subjected to the second edition of this book during my graduate studies at DTU. In my opinion there's only one good thing to say about this book, and that is that it's the only book I've seen where you get a comprehensive introduction to all of the techniques for developing and serving web-pages. Unfortunately, the authors are living in a Miocrosoft Internet Explorer only world, which especially is reflected in their chapters on (x)html and javascript. Problem is, no version of IE is actually capable of understanding xhtml, so what you are in fact taught is xhtml 1.0 served as text/html which is treated as hmtl 4.01 in all browsers. Even worse, the third edition has rewritten all the examples in xhmtl 1.1 which *should*not* be served as text/html. Even worse, the xhtml examples given will trigger an error in IE 6 that will get IE 6 to behave as IE 5.5 in quirks mode - inclusive the css box model error. As to the javascript examples, the book isn't teaching you the w3c DOM but only the IE DOM, thus all examples using eg document.all will possibly fail in some browsers.

2-0 out of 5 stars Tunnelvision
Using this book is like driving without peripheral vision - you can't take the slightest turn off the single path chosen by the authors. Sure, this book will walk you through making a stateless session bean and deploying it on JBoss. But what if you want to make a client? What if you want to use the Eclipse IDE provided by JBoss? Suddenly, you're left on your own. This book may be helpful to someone making a first pass through J2EE, but if you want to use JBoss for any practical purpose, this book is practically worthless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Text
As an employee of a company that develops web based applications, but not a software engineer in that company, Tom Marrs and Scott Davis's text does a terrific job in putting the disparate pieces that make up a J2EE application together.Their approach of incrementally adding the requisite technologies from each tier, as they carry through a single example, provides remarkable clarity to the discussions of each piece.I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the "nuts and bolts" of a J2EE application.My only caveat is to make sure you read the README.txt file when you download the source code.If you've downloaded a JBoss version later than 4.0.1 (current is 4.0.4) then the code examples beginning in Chapter 5 won't work.The needed change, discussed in the README file, is simple, clearly indicated and works throughout the rest of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent practical guide to JBoss and J2EE
J2EE started out as a specification that left the implementation to each container vendor. It's readily apparent that two of the earliest vendors, WebSphere and WebLogic, implemented J2EE in vastly different ways. As a result, early books on J2EE or Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) frequently either avoided or severely limited the discussion of a specific server because the details were better referenced from server vendors' manuals. JBoss changed that picture. It is an open source Java-based application server which is freely downloadable, plus it is a certified J2EE server.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Overview Without Getting Bogged in Details
One of my long standing complaints about computer software books is that they so often eliminate the first forty pages or so that explain just what this software is and what is supposed to do. This book (at 606 pages it's a lot more than forty pages) is essentially the front end description that explains what SAP ERP is and what it si supposed to do.
1-0 out of 5 stars What happened in the new edition?
This edition appears to be about 1/3 the size of previous editions; and refers to a fairly old version of SAP... even though this was released in Dec 2005.
2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Book, barely skims the surface
This book provides no real usable knowledge about SAP. There is absolutely no information on some areas, such as CATT's.And the areas that have some meat have only bologna. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Converted a hard-core C programmer to the STL!
I thought this book was great. It gave me allot of good ideas and showed me how to things I didn't know how to before. But the real selling point was that I loaned it to a coworker who was a hard-core C programmer. He scoffed at C++ and OOP in general; making statements like "Everything I need to do can be done in C". After reading three items in the book he was questioning his thinking and trying new things. His latest project is not only in C++ but it's also embedded in the STL. He's taken quite a liking to it and has learned a lot of new things.
5-0 out of 5 stars Standard Template Advice
This book will help you make better progamming decisons when it comes time to use the STL in a project.Scott Meyer is one of the best writers on the subject of programming. Here he shows you how to best use the Standard Template Library and avoid some of it's dangers. His examples are clear and help you better understand the rationale for his advice. His writing style is terse but pleasant.
4-0 out of 5 stars good STL book
I bought this book in a hurry for the purpose of using STL functions for my programming project. It does have some very good and useful advises and tips for dealing with various problems, and is not assuming the reader of it is too much of a entry level programmer.

5-0 out of 5 stars The one JavaScript book to rule them all...
I'm a technical trainer, and we've decided to distribute this book as part of our Ajax courseware.We've reviewed many other JavaScript books, but we keep coming back to this one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best JavaScript Reference!
This is the 5th edition of this almost thousand page book (992), and has been pretty much the gold standard for JavaScript reference books.I have the 4th edition that came out a few years ago and it was worth upgrading to this new 5th edition.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Bible
It's called "The Definitive Guide" for a reason. Covers everything from simple variables to complex AJAX coding. Beginners may be a bit overwhelmed by it, but I would still recommend any O'Reilly guide as it's the one you'll actually use as your skills increase.. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent but you can do better
The text covers a wide range of topics but doesn't dive very deep.The font in the book is pretty large and there is copious amounts of whitespace that is wasted.It would be a decent read through for a beginner-to-immediate person but you will need to do much more to round out your Python knowledge.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy read to get you up and running
I've been a big fan of the Core programming books, including the Core Java volumen 1/2 series.This book I found while skimming my local library and decided to give this little language a try.I understand that this is an "outdated" book that covers Python 2.0, the latest being 2.4.x as of this writing.However, the material covered in this book is still very valuable.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginning Python programmers
Definitely worth 5 stars.The book clearly explains its purpose, and the author makes his methodologies known in the beginning as to how he will approach teaching the language.His explanations are clear and concise, and it does not contradict the DOCS available on the Python web site.He's both humorous and informative, with a relaxed style of writing.Read more
