Hacking XP has never been so easy!


If Bill Gates ever paid attention to what customers actually wanted in their operating system rather than shoving it down our throat, then he would hire Steve Sinchak to write the next version of Windows. Concise, easy to read, and liberating.

Title: Starting an eBay Business for Dummies
Publisher: For Dummies
Authors: Marsha Collier
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Interesting and inspiring!


This book is a must have, but I had expected more. The author gives you a lot of needed advice about shipping, organization, and finding a product. However, if you are looking to find out at what point you go from a hobby seller to one that needs a business lisence, or at what extent your income is tracked by ebay you are out of luck. If you are looking to find success stories of other ebay sellers you are out of luck. In general the book refers you to other web-sites (many of which are very helpful), however many of them are no longer in existance (not the authors fault, just how things are). I recommend this book for a starter, but I suggest you keep your hopes low...I think I'll invest in one of the other ones and see if it is any better...

Title: The Photoshop 7 Wow! Book
Publisher: Peachpit Press
Authors: Jack Davis
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great book that makes you want to try out what you just read


Of course, this book expects you to know at least the basics of Photoshop. But thank god it does, so it's not yet another newbie book that teaches you what a layer is (not intending to sound disparaging).
For those interested in digital photography, web design or just wanting to live out their "digital creativity" the book is a must.
I guess the best praise for a book like this is that it makes you immediately want to try out the things you just learned.
