Chapter 11 saved me a headache

One of my Windows XP machines got completely corrupted and would not boot - even in safe mode. Normally I would wipe the drive and move on with a fresh install, but in this case, I needed to recover several files - including my recent honeymoon photos.
I had visions of booting with a recovery floppy and drilling down DOS directories - copying one file at a time to the floppy disk.
Chapter 11 had exactly the solution I needed - create a new partition, install Win XP fresh, and recover the files from the old partition.
Highly recommended.

Best book to learn SQL/400

If I were teaching (or taking) a class on SQL/400, or just wanting to learn how to develop AS/400 database applications, this is _the_ book that I would want to use. The information needed to develop AS/400 SQL applications is available from other sources, but contained in hundreds of technical manuals, magazine articles, news group postings, and code examples (just to name a few sources). The authors have used their considerable knowledge and experiences to shorten the learning process for the reader by pulling together that information into a single place. I am especially impressed with the organization of material into manageable topics, the easy to read writing style, and numerous tips and techniques presented. I found reading this book more like reading a good novel and wanting to see what happens in the next chapter rather than reading a textbook. I have to admit however I live with this stuff every day. Having been an AS/400 database administrator for the past 10 years I can appreciate the amount of knowledge, experience and effort required to write a book of this kind. The only downside to this book that I found is that I would have liked to see more information about developing applications using JDBC, interfacing with Windows applications using ADO and ODBC, and serving AS/400 information via Web pages. I find an increasing part of my workload to be answering questions about these topics. A good majority of those questions however don't deal with language specific access mechanisms but rather from a lack of understanding about AS/400 specific features and database fundamentals, topics which are well covered in this book. After reading this book I do have one additional problem also. Now I need to buy a stack of these books to hand out to the numerous developers who cross my desk on a daily basis.

Good coverage of Mathematica applied over several fields

I have several books covering Mathematica. Ruskeepaa's book is the one I turn to most often. Of specific interest to me is its coverage of Mathemtica applied to problems in optimizaion and statistics.
