Title: Eric Meyer on CSS: Mastering the Language of Web Design
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Eric A. Meyer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
I've recommended this book to 5 people a day since I got it!


I was personally disappointed in this book, being the tech geek that I am. And yet I still end up recommending it to about 5 people a day since I got it. This book is project-based, and walks the reader through several designs using CSS. I remember thinking at first glance at this book "Not what I was looking for, but WOW! this would be very useful for . . .". And with that, I began evangelizing. I kept the book for a couple of days, reading through it, and showing it to several web site designers who after a quick glance would write down the title so they could get their own copy. Then I left the book with our two web developers, who were last seen wrestling over who got to use the book first (my company paid for the book, so I felt no loss).
Now, as I mentioned, I'm a tech geek. I read the specs on the W3C website to find most of the info I want to know. I really liked Eric Meyer's "CSS: The Definitive Guide" and frequently visit the author's website ... for pointers and tips on using CSS (not to mention his fun little articles about life in general). But I realize for most people, they need a little more guidance - this book offers just that. This book is just one step down from having Eric Meyer come in and walk you through CSS.
If you've been interested in using CSS, but have felt like it's a little out of reach, this book will put CSS firmly in your grasp. I have never seen a book that has generated this kind of excitement among our designers & developers. Buy it now before it's out-of-stock again!

Okay


I used this book to pass the Network+ certification book. I have had some experience in networking though and yes there were some inaccuracies in the book. It's a good book just to refresh some things before you take the test though.

Title: Effective Project Management: Traditional, Adaptive, Extreme, Third Edition

Practical book


I find this book very practical. Project Management is a field where there are many concepts with dependencies on one another. The authors have managed to explain these concepts in a flow that is smooth and easy to understand, and yet with not too many words, i.e. clear and concise words. It surely gives a good foundation to someone who is learning Project Management.

A logical approach to logical data modeling


Steve Hoberman has written a truly valuable book that is sure to advance the discipline of data modeling. The writing style make it a comfortable and interesting book to read, and the organization makes it useful as a reference. Steve's concepts, definitions, and classification schema help to advance data modeling as a learnable and repeatable process. Many aspects of this book added to my knowledge of data modeling. I learned some new techniques, and I've been a data modeling practitioner since the early 1980's. This is a must for every data modeler's bookshelf. I believe the single greatest impact this book will make is in its attention to data modeling as a human process as well as a technical one.
