Where is the sequel?

Feb. 14, 2003 I read Nicholas Darvas in 1973 and found so much sense from an individual (as opposed to the so called professional advisors). Gary Smith takes a similar approach and all of us investors/traders out here appreciate Gary taking the time to show us how to trade. The financial advisors of the world have their own agenda and could care less about a client unless of course you are already a multimillionaire. It would be benefical to see what Gary has done since publishing, (1999 to 2003), (during one of the most severe bear markets in history). Therefore the title; Where is the Seguel? Gary, if you read this, we anxiously await your next book, and thanks again for the help you have already provided.

Very good on C++, but not a good reference for STL

As many readers noted before me, this book is not for beginners. However, for programmers who have experience in OO programming and C, this is a great book.
The only thing I miss is a complete and well-organised reference of the standard C++ library. Many aspects of the library are explained and illustrated with clear examples, but there is no clear and complete list of what the library contains - Stroustrup simply says "look at the header files to find out more"...

I wouldnt kick it out of bed for eating crackers

I bought this book just cause I wanted to know what XML was all about. I had been avoiding the step by step books from microsoft because since VB 6 step by step many moons ago...everyother one I had read was confusing and lacking. XML Step by Step however is very well laid out and has renewed my confidence in the series. He does jump around a little more than Id like him too and as pointed out by a previous reviewer...He does have too many flow stopping notes added in. Still, I am learning from the book at an acceptable pace and thats a successful publication so far as I am concerened. I also noted someone else saying the book was boring. XML is boring...I dont think its fair to shoot the messenger. Foundations are important, this book offers just that. An interesting bonus to this book is that it manages to incorperate an excellent CSS section that is better than most of the books ive read that are dedicated to CSS alone. For that I offer an extra credit star. Mad props to Mr. Young.
