Finally! A good learning book!

This book is WELL worth the money. Why? Because it teaches you ASP/ADO with examples, the results and then step by step explanation of how it works. I wish other books could be as good as this.
This is a book for people that understand the basics of programming (a little Basic/VB/VBscript is helpful) but not the finer details.
Definately worth the money, get it!

Message from editor of Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies

Hi -- I'm one of the editors who worked on Adobe Premiere Elements For Dummies and just wanted to post a few words about the book.

As you probably know, Premiere Elements is a pretty cool tool for editing digital video. We designed our book to help you get a firm grip on all the features in Premiere Elements and make using the software a simple task.

Doing a more user-friendly manual on the software could have been enough for this book, but we wanted to offer more than what other books do. So we've added a lot of information on digital video basics like shooting good footage and getting the most out of your camera. We also added content on the best ways to share your videos after you've edited them. Finally, we tried to go beyond the "how-to" with the software and show how to use the tools in the most effective manner for the best results.

Our author, Keith Underdahl, was definitely the right man for the job. He's also author of our current edition of Digital Video For Dummies (a more basic book for folks just getting started with digital videography). Keith has done pro videos, but he also enjoys using his camera for family events and vacations. In short, he knows where all the natural stumbling blocks come with digital video and knows how to get around them.

Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoy our book.

Probably the best source on the topic

I am an IT professional and have been reading the new crop of books on Windows 2003 Server. I must admit, most of the books out there are disappointing. I've read several Microsoft Press books and was not thrilled.
Since "Mastering Windows Server 2000," by Minasi was the best book on the topic of Windows 2000 Server I have read (and I read quite a few) I was delighted to see the 2003 book available. Since Windows 2003 is an updated software version of Windows 2000 Server, one can expect that "Mastering Windows Server 2003" is greatly similiar to the 2000 book also. However, I disagree with a previous reviewer that recommended only the changes should be included. Doing that would require the reader to buy the 2000 edition then lookup any differences in the new book. Rewriting a book that is all inclusive makes much more sense.
If you are looking for only ONE book to buy on Windows 2003 Server, this is the book. Yes, if you already own the 2000 book, you may not need this one but if you know how to install and administer a 2000 server, you may not need any book at all.

Title: Web Navigation: Designing the User Experience

Strong, but not Herculean

This book, along with Morville and Rosenfeld's Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, was one of the first things I read when I started getting into designing navigation for a living. It's very simply laid out, clearly and concisely written, and you'll have no trouble trying to figure out what Fleming is trying to tell you. Some boooks on the subject try to be very complicated, while Fleming points out the basic common sense infherent in good navigation systems. The CD includes a Dreamweaver trial, among other things, if you want to try out this WYSIWYG. Anyone designing a large-scale or commercial web site will be helped by reading this book, as will aspiring information architects.
