Here it Comes

By reading this review you're participating in smart mob technology. Congratulations.
I try to stay abreast of science and media technologies, but occasionally a book comes across my desk (I'm a journalist) that puts the pieces together in a way that induces epiphanies in readers - casting a shadow in their minds that sends their thoughts to the book again and again.
In "Smart Mobs" Howard Rheingold looks at the wireless ubiquitous vomitous glorious instruments that continue to invade our lives, and asks some highly relevant questions about how they'll reshape our social structures, what it will mean to always be connected, and what threats this technology poses to "individuality", human rights, health, and sanity. He reminds us in a McLuhanesque way that any time you use a tool to change the world, it also changes you.
Digital telepathy, augmented reality, computers coordinating human interaction - it's all here. It's all big.

A Book Aimed At the Top of the Totem Pole

Pressman's text is squarely directed at the process of software development. He does not get bogged in details of a particular implementation methodology and thus provides a broadbased view of software process. It proposes tradition IT valuation principles with a sprinkling of more common management metrics.

An "old way" programming book, but still a very good one

After reading the review from javauser1 I have to agree with him about that it will be better to have a second updated edition than a new book (More servlets...), but that is just marketing.I have read it from the beginning and although is the "old way" and outdated, I think is the best way to learn something. I think, How can we go deeply if we don't know the surface? We need the basics and Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages fullfil my requirements for developing web applications. I recommend this book to be a beginners and intermediates programmers reference for web programming.It teachs a lot of issues
