Definitely the best introductory book on Java!


I've bought a lot of books on Java, but this is definitely the best written book I've come across. It is so easy to read and to learn the material. If I had to choose one book to recommend to the beginning Java student, this would definitely be the one!

An Outstanding Book


I've been avoiding learning RMAN till now. When RMAN first came out, I thought that it's another way to sell more server licenses. After reading this at the local coffee shop, I've determined that this is the preferred B&R method. This is a good primer for the Oracle9i RMAN Backup & Recovery (ISBN: 0072226625), which is my next purchase.

Title: sed & awk (2nd Edition)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Dale Dougherty, Arnold Robbins

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Good first book on Awk & Sed


This is a great first book on awk and sed. It also has one of the clearest explanations of regular expressions I could find. I use it all the time in my database programming/data processing work. It has served me well. There are probably more advanced features of awk that are not covered in this book but for the price it is a great bargain. If you want to learn awk buy this book and you won't be disappointed. You can ignore the sections on sed if you like.
