Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Great examples but DON'T use as a study guide!

This is an all around good book with great useful examples. It is good especially if you are new to the whole web server concept. If you are familiar with web servers, response codes and forms, you may want a more concise book (there are a few out there).
NOTICE: If you are studying for the J2EE Web Components Certification Exam, you may want to get a newer book because some of the naming conventions are out of date. In otherwords, wrong answers on your exam!

The ONLY Digital Photography instructional book you need!!

Fantastic !! Superb !! Beautiful !!
Add to those superlatives the fact that is book is laid out in a way that even the busiest among us will find easy to deal with. Jeff Wignall covers all aspects of digital photography in a way that is most informative but doesn't overwhelm the novice. I garnered knowledge from almost every page. This book can aptly be described as a labor of love. Great care was taken at every turn and it clearly shows. A great value. Thanks Jeff for helping me to truly enjoy my digital camera.

New handbook for Java project automation

Mike's book should be a desktop reference for anyone working on Java projects.

He first gives you a high level overview of why a concept is needed on your project. Then he shows you which product to use, and gives you a practical working example.

Whether you are learning how to use various build tools (like Ant or CruiseControl) or refining your existing project, this is a must have book. It's a "report from the trenches", not an academic analysis. You can read this book and boost your productivity the first day.
