A very complete book on C++

This book does a very good job of explaining the facets of the C++ programming language in detail, but, at the same time, in plain english. I do have to say that the order in which the author chooses to present some of his topics is a bit peculiar, but if this isn't your first object-oriented programming language, then you should have no trouble adjusting. Very complete and a heck-of-a-lot more readable then "The C++ Programming Language."

I Hate to Have to Use It

Compared to the "Annotated C++ Standard", this book is a disaster for the working programmer. But Annotated is out of date - also a disaster. So its this or the $175 Ansi standard document if you need the facts. Please, please, finish the promised:
The Annotated C++ Language Standard (coauthored by Andrew Koenig, the ANSI C++ committee's Project Editor).

Over Priced and Overly Cautious

A good, solid, GUIDEBOOK for anyone who is just starting out in wed design, but certainly not gospel. Seasoned professionals will appreciate it for what its worth: an enlighten collection of tips and opinions on the subject of web usability. It would have been nice if the book was more advice and here are your options/possible consequences, and less absolutism.
I've been a fan of Nielsen's alert box for years and was excited at the prospect of this book. True it is nicely illustrated and full of good tips to keep in mind, but in general the Nielsen's advice is overly cautious times and down right extremist at others. Tighter editing would have cut back on the exhausting over analysis of some points as well as corrected the numerous other gramatical and typographical errors.
