Must have!

This is the best HTML reference I've seen.
It's NOT a tutorial- it's for people who already have an intermediate or better knowledge of HTML.
As of this writing, it's also the most current book I've come across

3rd Edition - Keeps getting better!

I bought the first two editions and were impressed with them. The depth of knowledge and the sample applications showed the author put time into digging into the intermediate to advanced topics on building on Microsoft's technologies. With the 3rd edition, I was blown away. It's huge and there is a lot of information to digest. Since I work with both Exchange/Outlook and SharePoint, I especially liked that this book covered both topics (download the SharePoint chapters from the website for the book!). If you are going to buy one book on developing on Microsoft's collaboration technologies, this is the one. I can't wait for the 4th edition.

Title: Database Design for Mere Mortals: A Hands-On Guide to Relational Database Design, Second Edition
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Michael J. Hernandez
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
A necessary primer for the RDBMS designer & user.

A professional database developer recommended this text to me,a novice. He stipulated that the value of the book lay in its "from-the-ground-up" development of the foundations of a proposed relational database.
I have spent nearly 10 years in computing, including many years of using canned, proprietary flat-file databases implemented in Fortran. For personal use, up till now, I had never graduated beyond the level of constructing "databases" with tables in word-processors, elaborate spreadsheets, and simple flat-file databases of the generic *Works variety. These exercises all required extensive redundancy of data entry, and inability to format and extract information usefully.
Hernandez has provided an excellent primer for the inexperienced database designer and user, especially one whose efforts to date have been confined to more primitive tools. Parts of the text (constructing hypothetical interview scenarios) are repetitive and tendentious, but they are the only serious detraction from the value this book offers.
This book can be absolutely recommended for the novice (the user of word-processors, spreadsheets and flat-file databases) and intelligently recommended for relational database designers and users who are dissatisfied with the program product they are currently involved with.
