Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A Must have book

This is definitely the best Maya character animation book I have ever read. Even though its a bit advanced, you can manage your way through and learn from your mistakes. the way every thing is illustrated makes the workflow a lot easier and faster. Another amazing feature in the book is the way the author arranged the subjects, it just makes you understand a lot better and you don't feel lost .I believe that any intermediate Maya user who is interested in character animation must get this book. Its worth it. because you learn many different techniques and achieve what beyond your imaginations.

Second to none

It is one of the best books on the topic i have ever read.First of all it is a top down approach starts from the application layer rather than physical layer. This helps you relate directly to applications used over the net, like http protocol in one's browser, then it proceeds downward to transport layer uptill the physical layer, so you have one end of the thread in your hand as you proceed. When starting from physical layer usually readers are lost and cannot directly relate to their understanding of a network.It gives a very good conceptual understanding of the layers.I owe to this book my understanding and concept of layers and what is actually happening at which layer.While studying Tanenbaum i was usually lost as where i actually am (i-e which layer) and was usually lost about the head and feet of the story even though the topics were writen in an excellent manner.This book gives excellent material on what's inside a router how it uses a tree data structure to find output paths for incoming packets. Has one of the best references to online papers etc.The only thing weakly written is the last chapter on network management, it's good but didn't come up to the standards this book gots me used to.It is now being taught for the third consecutive year in university of engineering and technology, Deptt. of Elect Engg., Pakistan.

Must-Have CS book

If you are a good CSE engineer, and wanna make even better, this book is the one should be on your shelf. If you are compiler engineer, it is a must-have. I agree that it is a collection of research papers, but it is the only one comprehensive collection covering all aspects of compilation. I personally find it very helpful.
Dragon book is cool, but it is only for beginners. If you are a beginner, always start with Dragon book, but don't abuse this classic book.

great for the beginner

I reallly enjoyed this book. It was a great reference for a beginner such as myself. It was easy to read and very easy to understand. I definitely recommend this book to anybody wanting to learn how to script. I would have it given it five stars but there were a few spelling and graphical errors in it. Other than that, a great book for beginners.
