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 Good intro to shaders
This is a well written book covering the Cg shading language. It contains a lot of useful information about Cg and graphics programming techniques in general. Unfortunately, I felt like it didn't cover as much of Cg as I would have liked, making the book less useful than it could have been.3-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Cg
My review here is from an experienced OpenGL programmer's perspective. 4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction, not very thorough.
This book is very good to get yourself started with Cg, but lacks technical details and advanced topics. Once you're on your way coding shaders, you're better off with NVidia's free cg_toolkit.pdf which is included with the Cg SDK. ... Read more

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Python made painless
I've read a lot of books that promise to make acquiring a new programming language easy. Most don't. "Beginning Python," however, does.
5-0 out of 5 stars beginning python
i've never reviewed a book before but after studying python with this book, i had to.
4-0 out of 5 stars Nice reading
Still reading it though, it's a simple read. Small, simpleexamples and easy reading motivates any reader for further reading, exploring the language. Though I'm sure the 10 projects in the last chapters are very eductional, I think the author should've spent more time with "Files and stuff" and GUI-programming. Maybe, removing a couple of the projects would give more space and foundation in the areas mentioned? (Where's the pickle, Magnus?) Anyway, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn the Python language. ... Read more

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Give you clear look of little giant
This book gives you the bird-eye view of the world's renowned photo management software, it has some useful information for amateur photographer who is intended to use iPhoto software, written in plain english. It is little interesting that one-thirds of the entire book contents are cover how to choose the right digital camera and how to take a good shot, of course, you don't have to worry since its another two-thirds of pages are fulled about some kind of "soft" thing, which is about acquire, manage, tag, retouch and share or archive your pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars JAVA is truly agile, thanks to Anil Hemrajani!
I just read this book, Agile Java Development with Spring, Hibernate and Eclipse, and I find it the best Java book ever written on earth...Never have I read anything as clear and industry-driven as your book..Thanks for the clear explanation!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A great book, too bad you need to read it twice.
I've read a lot of books, of which many are conceptual, academic or technical or just hands-on cookbooks. The problem with "Agile Java Development with..." is that it fits none of the above categories. It feels like an attempt to a hands-on experience kind of book (there's a lot of "Let's get to the action!" phrases and then fails to deliver and just discusses another subject), but Raj delivers mostly academic unstructured comments on every aspect of the subject matter. Don't get me wrong, the book has all the information you need to get started and learn tons more from references Raj gives you, but the problem is: there's no structure to his story telling. For example, In every chapter when he's discussing a subject, he tends to reference/compare to other subjects that haven't been covered yet; he even adds a "(as covered in Chapter X)". Seriously, you actually have to have read the book in order to understand many of the comparisons and references he makes.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good "Agile Java" command line to GUI tutorial using the Spring/Hibernate/Eclipse
Having spent most of my last couple of years using Eclipse based GUI to build Java web apps, I don't have much exposure to doing it at the command line.Mainly I have never used Ant because the GUI tools shelter me from it nicely.But this book did a very good job of starting at the command line and then eventually moving to using Eclipse.It covered a great deal of ground but well enough to whet your appetite to look further into a wide variety of technologies surrounding "Agile Java .." development.

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding addition to my library
An outstanding addition to my library, Edward systematically explores the presentation of data showing the value of data rich content when it is properly displayed.After reading half the book, I couldn't sit through a presentation without coming up with at least 3 ways to improve it.The illustrations in the book are beautifully rendered and cover a diverse set of subject matter each as interesting as the next.The only topic concerning this book that I struggled with is whether or not to mark it up.In the end, as I do with all of my books I intend to refer back to, I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars So you thought you knew how to envision information...
I recieved this book along with the most excellent (almost a companion book) Visual Display of Quantitative Information, from my CEO. Since I work a lot with numbers and he had been stressing the importance of presenting data clearly and concisely.
4-0 out of 5 stars Fleshes out and expands the work Tufte has done on presenting information
"Envisioning Information" by Edward Tufte further fleshes out and expands the work he has done on presenting information.This volume is best suited for designers of complex information such as maps or schedules. As with his other books, it is richly illustrated with many colorful examples of well and poorly designed information displays.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too high-level
I expected this book to be a good technical reference (much like just about every other Sam's Teach Yourself book).The book fails to deliver technical information and is primarily focused on how to perform tasks when USING Sharepoint that just about anyone who can read and click would be able to figure out without the help.This book is overly simplistic and is targeted to the END USER who is not even familiar with using Internet Explorer (several pages spent on what the different features of IE are).

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative, thorough; a great reference book
Prior to reading this book, I know nothing about Sharepoint. After reading this book, I felt comfortable and well equipped to administer Sharepoint. It is simple to read and is also thorough in covering all of the components of a Sharepoint site. This book also covered the various tasks of a Sharepoint site administrator which I found to be valuable. A great learning tool for the novice and a great reference tool for the experienced Sharepoint site administrator. I also recommend the "Microsoft Sharepoint 2003 Unleashed, 2nd Edition" book by the same authors.

4-0 out of 5 stars good but too many mistakes
This book is good overall but has too many errors.Simple proofreading would remove much of the confusion.I was asking myself at least a dozen different times, "did they really mean that?" and after looking at the errata it seems that the authors or editors or whoever is in charge of the final copy was lazy/understaffed.This seems to be a growing trend with technical books.Very disturbing considering this field is all about being precise.

Editorial Review

PHP and MySQL go hand in hand; the former has been carefully adapted, through the efforts of the open-source community, to the latter. For situations that require dynamic content but don't merit the complexity and development time of Java or .NET enterprise applications, the PHP language and the MySQL database server fit the bill perfectly. That's the point Hugh Williams and David Lane make in Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly poor index
I'm new to PHP and MySQL, but a programmer for over 3 decades. I'm customizing some PHP code, using code examples for ideas. When I (a) see something I want to understand better or (b) want to find the PHP analog for basic functions, I naturally turn to the index to try to find the information I need. However, I found the index very disappointing because of what it doesn't have. For example, simple and basic keywords are not in the index: "comment", "logical operator", "and", "or", etc. I'm going to have order a different book as a PHP reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best starting point to php and mysql
I bought this book with the hope I could learn just enought to get me started with web application development. I only hadlittle programming experience at that time, I I didn't even have any experience with databases. Well. This book was the perfect introduction to web applications. From security to authentication, from php basics to multi-table join sql queries, this book got me into this world, and I appreciate it so much because I am working now in web development, thanks to what I learned from here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction Book & Reference
This book is an excellent introduction to PHP, MySQL, and the interaction of the two. It has a few chapters introducing PHP, then a few introducing MySQL, and then walks through the steps necessaryto build a functioning dynamic website.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent history and cultural analysis
I get an avalanche of technology-related books mailed to me, and it's rare when I actually try to read one. It's even rarer for me to read it all the way through with a smile pasted on my face the entire time. But that's what happened as I read Steven Levy's "The Perfect Thing."

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read!
I found the 6.5 edition so useful that I didn't hesitate for a second to order the 7.0 edition (which came out two months after I bought the first edition.)
5-0 out of 5 stars After Effects 7 Studio Techniques: An Expert Guide from an After Effects Expert
Buy this book; its cost (particularly here at Amazon) is trivial compared to the software, and you'll get some important independent opinions and expert advice that, from what I understand, isn't available anywhere else.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
Excellent book! Good quality examples and excellent instruction for those who are looking for a slightly more advanced book and don't want to read 1/2 book on the interface. The author really knows his stuff and it's evident in the text. There are lost of useful things on the DVD too ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars HTML & XHTML
This is a good book for moderate to experienced computer users with programming experience. The code snipets are helpful to illustrate the topic, but a less experienced person could easily get confused.

5-0 out of 5 stars HTML & XHTML: The Definitive Guide, Fifth Edition
I am getting ready to build my own website and this book has helped immensely and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good book to introduce them to the language of HTML.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good place to start
I first read this years ago when I was first learning HTML and had no developement experience.It was a great way to start off, easy reading and easy to look up information I needed.I still look things up when I need a quick refresher for a web page alteration.Not the book for someone looking for advanced knowledge. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Mind Hacks: Tips & Tools for Using Your Brain
It's a book very interested about language in mind and speech comprehension. I read a short comment in BBC Focus magazine and I wish to read because it's very easy to learn the misteries of mind in cognitive science applied to language and psichology.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fun book
It is not a typical "hacks" book in that it does not tell you how to utilize you brain more effectively or do neat things.It *does*have a lot of exercises that show you cool things on how your brain works with sections describing how your brain works - and a number of experiments (blind spot, Magnet interaction with the brain, word parsing in the the mind, and so on). This book goes very well with a recent title called _Mind Wide Open_ by Steven Johnson.
5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting reading
I found this book to be interesting in the way that it presents it's topics. It was insightful and worth the purchase. It is the type of book that you select chapters that interest you as opposed to going cover to cover. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars actionscript and Math
I appreciate the book and it helps to understand how to create nice animations by using maths.
4-0 out of 5 stars People, it's called flash math CREATIVITY
The Flash Math books are great.But not if you want an O'Reilly cookbook of answers to your design problems.It's all about inspiration.Being able to look at something and say "wow, that's so beautiful" and either need to make it yourself just on principal, or see that maybe one day you can use the idea yourself on all those practical things you're so worried about. If you get all juiced up creatively from the things you see around you, this is a perfect book.It's 4 instead of 5 because it doesn't come with a CD.But you can go to the website for the book and see things in action.
5-0 out of 5 stars Some Assembly Required
The book is great.I find the negative reviews puzzling because this book is like a $30 kit for a working spaceship, but you have to weld the wings on yourself.Big deal.What's wanting in so many Flash books are examples of the astonishing things you can do with Flash.This book shows what can be done, then hands you the code on a platter.I guess if you're more the designer type and you want to do great stuff using the math functions in Flash, you, um, er -- need to learn some math.But don't complain that every author hasn't lined up to correct your particular brand of ignorance.Read a book. ...
