4-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful introduction to a beautiful technology... but wait for the second edition
I just read the beta version of the second edition cover to cover in just a couple of days, and I love it, the content as well as the exposition.The first edition only gets four stars, though, because the second edition contains a lot of updates worth waiting for.Even in its rought beta state it's a great resource, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished book.

1-0 out of 5 stars second edition expected for fall 2006
Would have been 5 stars, but ...
5-0 out of 5 stars The only book I've used cover to cover
In all my years of reading, using and reviewing technical books, this is the first title I've read cover to cover, and in so doing actually built the sample application from start to finish.Most other books use a series of disconnected This book was my first foray months ago into the beautiful world of Rails development, and continues to function as the crowned jewel in my reference library anytime I have a question about Rails or Ruby.

3-0 out of 5 stars Textbook Tax
An excellent intro to programming from an outstanding author and programmer. It keeps reasonably upto date with the latest java version and presentation trends (pages are so full of color that reading it reminds me of a kid's birthday party.. personally I hate it, but it seems that's the current fashion..). My only problem with this book is its price and outrageous selling strategy. This book, as well as Big C++ and Big Java sell for 80 to 90 bucks in the US, where they can be imposed to college students as textbooks. Here in Italy, where this trick can't work they sell for their real value, that is from 40 to 50 bucks.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good intro textbook
I used this book in my intro to programming class that I took in college.I already had taken a programming class while in high school, so the concepts in programming were not new to me, but Java, being an object-oriented language, was new to me.As such the class was new and introduced a lot of concepts which I was not familiar with.This book was good; fairly easy to understand, and the sample problems were good and balanced.I could not find any grammatical, spelling or other mistakes, so kudos to the editors.Overall, it is appropriate for college students and older, though I would not recommend it for high school students learning programming for the first time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great start for Java programmers
I bought this book a couple of months ago and was on and off studying Java on my own, but I must say, overall its an excellent book if you are a novice to object oriented progamming. Just pratice making some of the programs that the book offers as problems and you should be fine. Like anything, if you don't make an effort to understand whats in the book and pratice the problems given, its useless. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great "dummies" book ...
If you are a complete beginner with respect to many of the skills needed for Ajax: HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript, then this book might be for you.All of the O'reilly Head First/Head Rush series are excellent teaching books and do a wonderful job at teaching skills in small bite-size chunks.Lots of pictures, exercises and games.This is about as fun as a book can get.
5-0 out of 5 stars HEAD RUSH AJAX--APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE APPLICATION!! HEAD RUSH AJAX--APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE APPLICATION!! ....
Do you want to learn , understand, and remember Ajax, with a goal of developing more responsive web applications. If you do, then this book is for you. Author Brett McLaughlin, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that in no time will allow you to write JavaScript code that fires off asynchronous requests to web servers.
1-0 out of 5 stars So redundant and so boring
I bought 4 other head first series books, java, EJB, Design pattern, and Servlet. These books were fast, funny and of course, informative. I really love these series. However, when I read this book I was so disappointed. Most explanations are redundant and it made me boring and the reading pace was suspended. I think the author have to add more examples and shorten the explanation. I regret to buy this book. Not recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Use Flash? Get this book!
I surprised how much information was packed into this book. Colin really holds nothing back, but doesn't forget about the beginners in the start of the book where he explains the basics. This allows the reader to quickly move into the more advanced sections and ultimately end up with a wealth of knowledge that came from one head.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just another book......
This book is targeted to users that are not new to programming. So, that's why I got the book since I know C++ and Java pretty well.But even if I didn't, and i knew some JavaScript (AC is JavaScript pretty much), I would also be considered as the target reader. With that said, these are my thoughts:
5-0 out of 5 stars it's essential if you want to program flash
since actionscript 3.0 has hit the scene in flex 2.0 and flash 9 is right around the corner, i'm slightly hesitant to recommend this book today (september 2006). BUT, the book is still great and if you are serious about programming in flash, i would say that it's essential material to learn. it's not a reference (although there is a small reference in the book) and it's not about how to program animation or do "cool" things in flash. it's about how to create custom classes and how to do it properly using best practices in flash. that's pretty much it. even as AS 3.0 crawls onto the scene, this book still gives a solid foundation and, from what i know about AS 3.0 so far, nothing you learn here will hinder you as you eventually move on to AS 3.0. the next version of actionscript will simply build upon what AS 2.0 has done. if you are still writing classes the old fashioned AS 1.0 way and feel like it's time to move forward, buy this book. if you've never written classes before, in any language, this book will show you how and provide a great foundation in doing so.

5-0 out of 5 stars A treasure!
This series is a treasure to keep. The book is filled with great diagrams and very easy to understand language.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
First is Knuth, second is Corman that brings the art of algorithms closer to earth. Then is Sedgewick. This book provides very good balance between theory and practice and lets the practitioners know that programming is a bit more than just writing "if" and "for" and that the art of algorithms is not only art but also science. This book evolved from early editions (Algorithms in C, 1990) and keeps the standard. These two volumes is the must for every serious programmer.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent combination of books
Sedgewick's publisher (Addison-Wesley) has gathered his two books, Algorithms in Java, parts 1-5, into one resource for developers. Convenient, for you now have something that spans the most common algorithms encountered during computer programming. Logically, the combination of the two volumes is very coherent. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Java Book That Hits Multiple Audiences
There is a lot of good information in this book for the experienced programmer who is new to Java.I just moved to a new team that is doing Java development although I come from a C++ background.This book is especially helpful to people coming from a C++ background because it calls out places where the languages differ.In the early chapters, you could skim the topics and read just these to get up to speed.However, it also has the details for people with other backgrounds such as Visual Basic or COBOL.The first six chapters deal with the fundamentals of the language.However, chapters 7-10 deal with Swing and Applets.I do not consider either of these to be truly fundamentals, and the examples in chapters 11-13 are cluttered by Swing.I would prefer that these topics have separate treatment in Volume II.It is also odd that JAR files and Properties are buried at the end of chapter 10 (Applets).However, these are minor complaints on an overall solid introduction to the Java programming language.If you find yourself at the point of making the switch to Java, I think this is the best book available.

1-0 out of 5 stars Core Java2 volumeI6th Edition
When I saw this seller list NEW for his book, I decided to buy it.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Truly Great Book. A scholarly tutorial.
This is a book written by someone who not only knows Java but is an actual computer scientist with experience in the corporate world (read his brief bio on the back cover.) He is also a college professor at San Jose State University and thus, unlike too many authors of programming books at certain publishers, his qualifications aren't summed up by statements like " . . . has been programming since he was 13 years old, " or, " . . . is a programmer at a Fortune 100 company on Wall Street." This book teaches you all of the fine details that "The Java Programming Language Guide" sometimes leaves out. That book, one of whose authors is James Gosling, is the only book that exceeds Horstmann's effort here, however it is not a tutorial and thus you need Horstmann's text alongside it. His treatment of "Objects and Classes" (chapter 4) and "Inheritance" (chapter 5) are alone worth the price of the book. This is a rigorous and challenging book and it should not be your first book in Java programming. After you've finished with Walter Savitch's Java textbook then purchase "The Java Programming Language Guide" and "Core Java" (both volumes) and see what computer programming is really all about (hint: it's not about setting up database driven websites to sell trinkets or to facilitate your blogging.) ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A fine pick.
Dan Saffer's DESIGNING FOR INTERACTION: CREATING SMART APPLICATIONS AND CLEVER DEVICES comes from an authority who's worked as a Webmaster and interactive media master for the past decade. His design savvy here offers beginner to intermediate designers a range of applications and shortcuts, from using controls and widgets to designing the better mousetrap. While his isn't strictly a computer book, it does provide a range of tips on brainstorming and creating smarter applications for hardware and software alike. A fine pick.
5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant overview of the fundamentals!
This is an insightful and necessary read for anyone entering the field of interaction design/user experience but also serves as a wonderful refresher for current practitioners, covering all the major areas, from software to devices, to entire systems. With lucid, articulate, easy language Saffer explains what I regard as the fundamentals of interaction design: definitions, contexts, methods/approaches, and new frontiers, all backed by relevant and clear examples. Some noteworthy highlights: compact case studies of real designs (like Google's IM), interviews with veteran design pros like Hugh Dubberly, Marc Rettig, Shelley Evansen, and a sharp look at Service Design and design for devices. Saffer fluidly conveys what I've always struggled to express: interaction design is not just web design, but a mode of thought and action towards improving relationships.
5-0 out of 5 stars The hardest button to button.
Whether you're a designer or programmer, designing for interaction is the hardest part of the job. I might spend one hour programming, and thereafter two hours staring at the user interface I expect PEOPLE to use. This book provides you with the tools and information to deal with interaction as an expert, and making the user experience fun and effective! This is Web 2.0, ajax is but a dusty tool to fix that which was never broken, it just feels that way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to ruby, ruby for rails from beginner to intermediate
chapter 13 - Ruby dynamics is worth the price by itself.
2-0 out of 5 stars I don't quite like it
this maybe against the popular opinions, but the book is thick on author's philosophical thinkings (and the author is obviously fond of) on how various things are tied together, but thin on the actual things that you can do, and what to do. You have to wade through bunch of such mommy and apple pie stuff to get the point, which is a a pain. On the other hand, if you have plenty of time, and want to take it to savor the good of either ruby or rails or their interconnects, maybe it is the right book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent textbook for learning Java...
If you prefer your computer technology learning in textbook style, then this is an excellent choice in books...Introduction to Java Programming - Comprehensive Version (Sixth Edition) by Y. Daniel Liang.It's an entire college-level course in Java in one very big (and well-written) volume...
5-0 out of 5 stars Great intro through intermediate text
I've tried learning C++ many times and kept getting lost between the introductory and intermediate level texts.It was suggested that I consider trying Java, so I reluctantly found this text by Liang and am making my way through.Not only am I not getting bogged down in the C-compiler, but Liang's explinations and examples are so much clearer than anything I ran into in the C++ texts I had used.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Way to Learn
The author does a great job of presenting a complicated subject in an easy to grasp step by step method. Dr. Liang obviously understand how to both teach and educate at the same time. I found this book through a formal class, but we only covered a subset of the chapters. I took the book and finished on my own. The book is that well structured and written. As a pleasant side note, it also contains zero errors that I could find, contrary to may software books.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing Book for the Money
The book was purchased with the hope that it would be a step by step guide in setting up Joomla!.Unfortunately, it does not even come close.The book is nothing more than a re-print of the Joomla help website and the websites of additional modules.The book contains no step by step instruction on building content - just a description of what each screen does.Even that is not in much detail.Save your money and wait for a better manual to come along.

My hope was that the book would do what the Editorial Review said i.e. walk you through the creation of your own website. It does not. It does walk you one by one through every possible menu item etc, although again not in a particularly useful order. As others have said, most of what is there is already available in the online help. It would have been much better to have gone though the process of building a site to show the user all of the steps involved from planning to implementing to refining...

5-0 out of 5 stars What else can I say....
There are plenty of 5 star reviews already raving about what I gained from reading the book. Read those for a more detailed review. During my C++ years, I read the exceptional Scott Meyer's `Effective C++' book, so I wanted to find the same production in the Java world. Bloch did an excellent job in writing this. This book is as close to the exact same thing except for Java. If you've worked in the C++ world and heading towards Java, definitely grab this book to quickly set the stage for your transfer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Concise and priceless
Unlike some other books that says "Always do this" this book says "Consider doing this in such and such cases" and explains why. And instead of "Put in an exception as much description as possible" it says "Put the numbers, the rest is retrievable from the stack trace and the source code". Without any idealism this book gives very practical advices, so that you can get better results in less time. The writing style of this book is very concise and worth every minute of your time reading it. And unlike "Head First Design Patterns" the "Effective Java" does not need any "funny" pictures to be readable - it is fascinating by itself.

I have never done more than play around with Java, but this book has still has had as much influence on my programming habits as any other book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Great!
Advanced Modeling is a fantastic book, and pretty easy to follow with relatively few coding errors.There are some books out there that have errors in the code that they use, which makes it difficult or someone to learn the techniques.Even for those without a solid background in VBA, this book can benefit you to start learning how to code properly.Anyone who is relatively proficient with Excel can definitely gain a new trick or two from reading this book.All you really need to start using this book is a basic understanding of finance concepts (e.g. portolio theory, capital budgeting, binomial options pricing, Black-Scholes, etc.).The techniques that are taught are also useful in other modeling exercises, and not necessarily just for finance-related topics.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cookbook for Financial Modellers
Yes, the book won't teach you CAPM, Black-Scholes, or much financial theory.But there is NO shortage of those books.There is a shortage of books with real-world Excel solutions to applying financial theory to data.I've had this book for a couple of years and have probably only used 10% of it, only because I don't have time, real business need, to do the rest.I sometimes take it to bed to read and dream of having the time to try out some of their other models.That's the only thing I can add to the other reviews here, the amount of love and passion for the subject put into this book.There's not one extra padded word or graphic in this book.Yes, if there was one book I'd have to take to a desert island with Excel and some financial data this would be it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not really satisfying
One of the main points of programming books is to help the reader understand the models being programmed.On this count, "Advanced modelling in finance using Excel and VBA" fails miserably.There is very little explanation of the financial concepts and models.Anyone hoping to learn finance from this book will be very disappointed.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Frontpage 2003 Review
When I first purchased the Frontpage Software I should have bought this book at the same time, in fact they should actually be sold together.It is very well written and a very good guide once you are up and running.I would recommend this book to anyone who has a basic understanding of MS Office products.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible for a Help Book
This is a terrible book. I am a total novice in FrontPage and web page creation but have lots of experience in computers including programming years ago.
1-0 out of 5 stars I'm lost
I've never written a review before, but I'm so lost after reading this book that I had to warn others before they come down the same road.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's more of a beginers book
It describes Javascript as used in web design and not as a separate language. Most Javascript books are like other language guides, you learn the language but have no idea what to do with it. This book is about manipulating the elements (& nodes) of a web page. It's easy to read and understand. After this you can go learn more about Javascript if you need to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Must have it excellent book. I also recomend CSS Mastery. Great books for library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and Concise
DOM Scripting by Jeremy Keith gives you a very smooth introduction to JavaScript and the DOM. The books is more directed at those who are just beginning JavaScript or have used it in the past but would like more knowledge.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but ONLY FOR WINDOWS
Great detail, but I was very disappointed to discover it is only for Windows.It does NOT cover PE4 for the Mac.There are some substantial differences between the applications on the two platforms.Good material, but now I have to figure out what to do on my Mac ...
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Illustrations
What makes this book so useful is the preponderance of excellent illustrations! This book very clearly illustrates where the user should focus on the Elements' tool bars, option bars, menues, screens, etc.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful manual
The manual is essentially great for beginners and advanced users. Probably a little bit more illustrations would have inspired me to rate it with five stars. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I've gotten about 6 chapters into this book and I love it.I've been developing Java for almost 7 years and am currently teaching myself Agile principles and this book comes as a great help.

3-0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it!
I'm not a beginning programmer, or even an absolute Java novice, so maybe this book isn't really aimed at me.My biggest gripe is that the code snippets continue on and on making the book very poor for anything other than cover-to-cover reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic
This book is a fantastic primer to not only the java language, but to agile methods and junit as well.The author does a great job of introducing many concepts in a way that is easy to digest without being slow.However, seasoned java programmers may get frustrated with the early chapters that speak to basic java while introducing the bread and butter of junit. This is only for the first 150 pages or so.The information and lessons on refactoring, best practices, and junit are well worth it though.The best part of the book is the author's style.He does not speak down to the reader with overly high vocabulary, or with an "I am all knowing" attitude, but rather he uses a conversational tone with an emphasis on making the topic clear concise and to the point. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Broad and deep coverage
The two books of this series (Core Reference & Advanced Topics) offer broad and deep coverage of ASP.NET.
4-0 out of 5 stars Written by somebody who knows what he is talking about
Basics of .net framework is presented in aclear and lucid style.This book is a joy to read and .by the way there is not much difference in content wise between applied .Net framework programming and this book. My only worry is the speed at which microsoft is pushing .net versions as if there is no tommorrow! [Subsequently the catch up I have to do on reading all this!]

5-0 out of 5 stars FINALLY a book geared at the experienced developer...
If you need to do more than just write sample code for tutorials, then this is the book for you. It provides valuable coverage of the ASP.NET landscape. I learned things about web services I never knew I could do with .NET.

3-0 out of 5 stars Loaded with info, but turns too complicated after a while
I understand that when it comes to javascript, there is a lot of history that needs to be taken into consideration. Browser differences and compatability, etc. are things no javascripter should ignore. However, this book, in my opinion, makes it overly complicated by trying to touch on every little twist there was in the history of javascript.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Cross-browser Reference, tho' getting a bit out of date
This is an exhaustive reference text.It documents the full functionality of javascript, indicating which functionality works on which browsers, and is the best of its kind, based on the several texts I have considered.
5-0 out of 5 stars Superb, complete coverage
Other reviewers have already summarised the book contents, so no point in repeating the message.
