Title: CISSP All-in-One Exam Guide, Second Edition (All-in-One)
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media

Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Comprehensive but trying to put square peg in round hole

I purchased the new SRV books, the CISSP Prep Guide, and just recently this book. The All in one guide out performs the others because of the amount of coverage of the subjects and the ease in comprehension.
The other books do not seem to go into the depth that this book does and is not half as interesting as this one. The amount of graphics and network schematics really helped me out in some of the more escoteric concepts.
I attended the ISC2 class late last year and I do feel this book provided more information and understanding than ISC2's very expensive class. ISC2 provides an outline of the information that may be on the exam, but not any real instruction.
I would recommend this book if you are serious about passing this exam.

Buy this...

...if you have an iPod, or are planning to buy one... this book is about everything you need to set up your own music collection using iTunes 4 (Mac) or MusicMatch Jukebox (Windows), and enjoy it anywhere using your iPod.
It is divided into various parts: Introduction (What is an iPod?), The Hardware (Meet the iPod, The iPod Sync Connection), The Software (Digital Audio Formats, iTunes for the Macintosh, Musicmatch Jukebox for Windows, The iTunes Music Store), Beyond the Music (iPod as Address Book, Calendar and Hard Drive, iPod Games and eBooks, iSync) and Extreme iPodding (Connecting to other audio systems, Hot Hacks, Cool Tools, Troubleshooting and more), followed by the appendixes which clearly describe the use of iTunes and MusicMatch.
This is just THE book on the iPod and related matters. Furthermore, the language used is pleasant and it can make you smile at times. The paper is of good quality and feels good to the fingers.
Make your iPod time a pleasant time with this book!

The best introductory Web design book currently available

Elizabeth Castro is on of the world's most gifted instructors/writers of HTML...this is the second book I have purchased by her on HTML and I learned just as much the second time around as the first. Nothing about this book is long winded or too complex for the individual just starting out with HTML. I use excepts from HTML 4 as an instruction tool for classes that I myself teach. I have seen the 800 page collectives of HTML goo goo that leave anyone new to the process feeling frustrated and lost....but after completing this book not only will you be able to code your website but you will also have a strong foundation in the world of web design....this is quite simply the best HTML manual on the planet bar none. Good Job again...and thanks S. McCoy

Title: Professional Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET (Programmer to Programmer)

Not a learning book

I don't know much at all about Crystal reports, and since I've bought this book, I am still in that category. This is not a book where you learn how Crystal reports works, it mainly for integrating the reports that have been created into a .NET application, either web or windows.
I wish it had more basic crystal functionality.
