Good Book for Begginer-Advance


With this book and no other information, I was able to create an entire web site in a day. I used Notepad and wrote everything from scratch -- didn't even need an HTML authoring tool. Highly recommended.

The Jeff Richter of database books


There is certainly an enormous amount of value packed into this title. It is one of the best development titles I have ever seen. You won't be at all disappointed. Now if only more authors could write and present information as well as Henderson...

Guidance from the Master


This book is subtitled, "Building Interactive, Fun and Effective Learning Programs for Any Company" and I think that says it all. I've spoken on the topic of where's the fun in eLearning and know that most of what I've seen is "deadly boring."
I have known Mike Allen since I worked for Authorware in the 1980's. One of the things I always regretted was not working in the MN office, as he, along with the rest of the Authorware team, conducted critiques of the work in progress being developed for customers. The few I did attend were always insightful and thought provoking. Along with being pretty scary if your work was on the agenda, because you might have to listen to bad along with good feedback. Mike Allen is a kind person, but not one to mince words when it comes to what makes up good and bad eLearning. I've also had the opportunity to attend several lectures by Mike on eLearning.
This book shares his insight on what makes good elearning, particularly from the viewpoints of motivation and interactivity. I am starting a new project with a lot of possible impact and reading his book has helped me immensely. Also, it contains several little history lessons on eLearning and Authorware that I really enjoyed. Lots of examples of good projects are discussed and included on a CD-ROM that unfortunately is not included in the book, but available for free from his website. If you are really interested in learning more on what makes good eLearning, I would definitely order it soon.

Wonderful Book!


I purchased my copy of the AD Cookbook last week from my local book shop. I just happened to find it as I was not looking for anything in particular but this caught my eye. It has not disappointed. Spent the first evening going thru all the vbs examples. Love how it has the web site so that you can cut and paste vbs examples. I've been dealing with Active Directory for over two years now and have done more than my share of scripts in that time. I've already added numerous snipets from this book. The recipe format is great in that it presents a 'problem' and then shows multiple ways of solving that problem using GUI, command line and scripting examples. This will be one of the few technical books that I read cover to cover. Yet the book will still remain on my book shelf afterwards for day to day examples.
I consider this a must have book and would be a good book for any range of experience, from beginner to advanced.
