Title: Applied Microsoft .NET Framework Programming
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Jeffrey Richter
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A real Bible in .NET Framework.

This book is the real Bible in .NET Framework.
¡¾1¡¿ Jeff stands on both a depth and a high level about .NET Framework. We can draw this from the parts of this book. Jeff partitions the .NET Framework into four parts: "Basics of the Microsoft .NET Framework","Working with Types and the Common Language Runtime", "Designing Types", "Essential Types", "Managing Types". This vision is unique, and of course gives me very good understanding to .NET Framework . And I have never seen a DonNet writer have this vision.
¡¾2¡¿ It is not a reorganization of MSDN doc( To tell the truth,many "excellent books' do in this way). Instead, it is an important complement to the MSDN doc, especially in the Chapter 2 ,Chapter 3,Chapter 5, Chapter 6, Chapter 15, Chapter 18, and Chapter 19.
The Chapter 6 , Chapter 18 and Chapter 19 are so excellent that I don't think there is another will exceed this. Oh, Don Box seems to be making efforts :)
They give me many important things that I don't find in some other books and MSDN. I think even Microsoft staffs need to get this book¡ª¡ªJeff recommanded many good techniques for .NET Framework Architecture,and found some bugs in .NET Framework.
¡¾3¡¿ Jeff has abundant programming experiences in programming , especially in Microsoft platform. And he give many good guidelines ,and even some patterns in this book. Especially for the Equality of value types and reference types(box/unbox), the Exception Handling, and the Garbage Collection.
¡¾4¡¿ There are so many good points that I can not write them all in one review.
¡¾5¡¿ By the way, this book is not for the .NET application( Windows Forms,ASP.NET,Web Services), but this a must-base for them
To summarize , this is a unique£¬classic£¬and excellent book for .NET Framwork. A real Bible in .NET Framework.

Title: Official Final Fantasy VII Strategy Guide
Publisher: Bradygames
Authors: David Cassady
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
only good for maps, not so much for battle info

I played FFVII three times. The latest time I installed a Voodoo3 card and the game runs fantastic in full screen. Everytime I play I refer to the Guide more or less. I bought another book too. It turned out only like two pages on that book contains valuable information comparing with the Official Guide.
Don't exactly follow the book while playing the game though. And there are some minor mistakes that you'll know when you become a veteran, such as you can get to the Acient forest to get the valuable Apocalypse as soon as you breed a Black Chocobo. You don't have to wait to defeat the Ultimate Weapon.
Lots of useful tricks are coverd in the book too. About breeding Chocobo, you may need to find more info on the web.
