Great intro

This book is a great intro to the world of Oracle 10g for both beginners and those experienced in other RDBMS flavors. As an Oracle DBA of a number of years it gave me an easy readover of what to expect when my company is ready to move from version 9.2 to 10g.

A must have!!

I very highly recommend this book. I never knew you could do so many cool things in FCP and I've been using it since version 2 for my own small video production company (www.gforcevideo.com) There are so many things you can do....things like having a shot be black and white and just one part of the shot (say a red shirt) be in color....ways to pull a key without using a blue or green screen (by using say a white pull down movie screen type background and then using Luma key) and many other AWESOME graphic and effects possibilities lie in the pages of this book. Not only that but all the color illustrations can give you a lot of ideas for making your own graphics. Plus you get some new filters!! This book is definitely worth the price and every serious FCP editor should have a copy in his or her edit bay!!!!Great job Kevin!! :-)

Title: Sams Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days (2nd Edition)

Gets you started

This book is a pretty good reference. It will help you learn PERL, which is actually pretty easy. The first fourteen chapters are excellent introductions to the basics of PERL. The last seven are simply awful attempts to teach more advanced topics. If you are a compotent programmer who needs to learn the basics of PERL in a hurry to convert a shell script, this book isn't bad. If you want to become "Just another PERL hacker," you'll have to look further. TMTOWTDI, but this is not one of them.

Best Book for PowerSellers!

Having been an eBay Seller for over 5 years, and a PowerSeller for as long as they've had the program, I really appreciated FINALLY finding a book that could bring me to the next level. Tired of reading the same old re-hashed text on how to take a good eBay picture? Want to join the big boys on eBay? Then this book is for you.
