Title: Fast Track to MDX
Publisher: Springer
Authors: Mark Whitehorn, Mosha Pasumansky, Robert Zare
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Intelligent author, strong book.


This book is just great! I have so far found MDX to be a very difficult language to understand; although I am fluent in SQL. The problem was that I didn't know enough about the basics, so I couldn't get over that initial learning curve.
The huge strength of this book is not that it is the definitive work on MDX; the authors are very clear about this - that is not what they intended to wrote. What they wanted to write was a book that made it easy for people to get started with the language - hence the word 'FastTrack' in the title. And they have succeeded superbly. As I read this book, the whole way in which MDX works seemed to crystallize in my mind; suddenly it all made sense. Now I find it really easy to write MDX expressions, which is making my job so much easier! I totally recommend this book if you have been finding MDX difficult to understand.

Great Book!


I have done extensive programming with VRML, and I find this book the best source for learning how to build VRML worlds. Explanations are simple, thorough, and complete with code examples. I recommend this book without any reservations, to anybody wanting to explore VRML.

Title: Beginning Linux Programming (Programmer to Programmer)
Publisher: Wrox
Authors: Richard Stones, Neil Matthew, Alan Cox
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent book for intermediate/advanced users


I enjoyed the book tremendously. It covers a huge number of topics which are enormously helpful to someone who has not programmed in linux/unix before or to even someone who has. I am somewhat disapointed that they used C instead of C++, but then C is the "language of unix".

Title: Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference (2nd Edition)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Danny Goodman
Rating: 5/5

EASILY Worth the Price


I'd pay the 31.99 price for Chapter 8 (the HTML Reference Section) alone. It includes every tag, the attributes for every tag, and how those attributes are implemented (or not implemented) on each of the competing browsers. Unbelievable! The book is well organized and VERY comprehensive.
