Grew on me

I originally considered this book pretty mediocre. The authors put some methods in tables and list others. Also some chapters assume you already know too much about Swing, which was frustrating, and others use classes defined in chapters way back in the book. However, shortly after I started coding with Swing, I found this book an indespensable reference to the Swing libraries that *way* exceeds other books in its coverage. The books may not be for beginners, but I highly recommend it for medium to advanced-level Swing programmers, as its the only one that goes far enough into topics considered "expert" to be useful.

Must Have Pocket Reference

If you are designing web pages, you must have this book. That is all there is to it.
This is a small compact reference book (hence the title) which lists the HTML tags in alphabetical order, shows if they are supported by the three major browsers (IE,NN,Opera) and if they are part of the w3c spec HTML 4.01. Information is given for the applicable attributes for each tag.
Once you know it (especially if you follow w3c standards) HTML is a simple and easy language to use.. however, having a easy to use reference comes in handy quite frequently, especially when starting up a new site.
This will not be the only reference you need.. no book can claim that. Though everybody who designs websites should have this book, those new to HTML may find it the most helpful most frequently. However, this book will NOT teach you HTML. It is a reference.. nothing more.
as mentioned in other reviews.. the IMG tag is missing, which is a major flaw, but not major enough to take away from the greatness of this book.
In short.. get it.

Dynamic Development made Simple

I have just started this book but am already very impressed with how much I have learned. Coldfusion makes it very straightforward to create dynamically generated pages. This book provides step by step instructions along with examples which you can use in real-world applications. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in ColdFusion programming. Start here!
