Good Foundation


This book provides an excellent foundation to the principles of database and data management. It explains some of the more difficult concepts quite well. I understand there is a newer edition, and as with all computer books, would generally recommend newer sources, but in this case I would recommend this one.

Core Web Pr0gramming R0cks With P0wer


Core Web Programming rocks with power. I consider it an excellent amalgamation of intermediate to advanced concepts for people who want to become functional in the multi-layered, multi-tooled field of Web and Network Programming. I just recently got hired as an entry level Java/JDBC programmer, and Hall's huge tome is my #1 reference, not to mention the textbook for one of my classes.

Note to previous reviewer - "he" is a "she"


This isn't the first time I've seen this assumption, but having been on mailing lists with Ms. Axelson, I can tell you Jan is a she, not a he, as the previous overly negative reviewer said. "Complete" comes from the title of a previous book by this author on RS-232. Admittedly, that term is probably over-reaching, but it beats Intel's lousy "DBE" on USB.

Ever There; Ever On


Smart Mobs is a book about ubiquitous wireless communication. A world where your clothing, your walls, your vehicle, your streets, your dust are made of materials in which wireless devices are embedded and always on. Life is no longer an exchange based on credit, but on digital trust as our wireless world communicates with us and those around us. And as each wireless device enters our world it increments the number of potential links exponentially.
Let Howard Rheingold reveal the mob world that will be ever there and ever on.
