Allen does it again

Robbie Allen does it again. This book is a must buy, (and no I don't know him nor have I ever met him.) But, I'm a professional instructor/consultant and have been at it for over 14 years and his materials keep on making me look real good to my clients and customers.

Robbie, keep up the good work - to all of the rest of you, just buy the book and you'll realize how good it is. (I won't bother with the technical reasons....others have already enumerated the reasons this book is technically fully-baked.)

Now, if you could just write on MOM 2005 and SMS 2003 like you do with Server 2003, Active Directory and Exchange...... :)

Great book...

This is a great book on Unix shell scripting. The book is loaded with useful scripts and I was even able to use some of the ideas presented in this book to make my own scripts perform much more efficiently. At one point I got stuck with one of the scripts so I emailed the author and he got back to me with a fix within a couple of days. Turned out to be a quirk with the Solaris 8 version of the operating system. I would recommend this book to anyone who works with Unix systems.

Save your Money for a microphone cable!!!

What a complete waste of text! Want to learn mastering? Don't actually expect to learn ANYTHING from this book. You'll learn though on how mastering engineers complain and whine about the state of the industry.... and that's about it! Reading these other reviews makes me wonder if these people even read this book at ALL! The first review says the book is great, and that it tells you nothing! Wow, just what I wanted to spend my money on, nothing at all. No, one book will NOT teach you everything you need to know about mastering, but this book teaches you NOTHING about mastering, except 'less is more' philosophy. Ok, there you go, you just learned everything you needed from this book from me. In short, dont' waste your time or money on this book. Would you want to read a book on car mechanics saying that 'hey, forget about being a mechanic, it's too tough!' and then continue on for several hundred pages? This is what this book is!
