Great book on the guts of Solaris!!

While I am not a programmer I loved this book on what makes Solaris tick. As a sysadmin the book covered more details on memory, filesystems and internals to the OS than anything I've seen before. Plus its a great brain teaser for Solaris stuff to stump interview candidates!

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Short and Sweet.

SQL is not a topic you want to jump headlong into. An intro as concise and comprehensive as SQL in 10 minutes is worth it's weight in Gold. I know, because I read several "developers" SQL books first, and found myself overwhekmed and confused. This book cleared things up and opend my eyes. Thanks Ben Forta!

Title: Teach Yourself Sap R/3 in 24 Hours

Waste of space

First of all nobody can learn SAP in 24 hours and this book will not do it. This book definitely give you very general and very basic overview of SAP functionality. In my opinion this book is for people like system annalists, technical annalists, IT specialists etc. with no SAP knowledge who would like to start working with SAP. It is however not for ordinary SAP user - subjects (hours) are mostly technical and language is also technical.
