An excellent book. You don't need anything else.


I'm come from a heavy ASP background, and as I've started learning the Linux OS, Perl appeared as something good to learn. Hearing the "Camel" book was the best, I went and got it. My thoughts: Its a terriffic Perl scripting reference!!! BUT, for those of you who want to learn Perl for dynamic web page authoring, this may not be the book you want. It's written much more from a Unix admin standpoint, using Perl for automation, and report generation. It does little special to help you with common dynamic web page tasks. Eg. No section on connecting to ODBC data sources for database publication, etc...

Sensational


Even my natural-born language not being english i could understand the book. Yes i know a bit. But, that's not the fact. The fact is that the book is very well : organized, written, explained, divided. Really, i have read some of it's reviews before buying it, and - as it was five stars rated - i bought it. Now it's here(im on day4) and I AM LEARNING. I didnt finished the book yet because i dont have the time. Must be day-by-day. So, guess what? Buy it now. ( ) END

A fat bag of goodness!


This book gives a board, complete overview of the java language. From no knowledge of JAVA, really in 21 days you will be an adequate java programmer having at least an idea of all the capabilities of this language. I you are a beginner or an amatuer this book is for you. If you are a java professoinal user the book won't help you much. All in all, I enjoyed the book it is my first step in the long path of Java.

A superb book, easy to read and understand


I found this book to be a real treasure -- easy to read, easy to look up information in, and easy on the eyes. For once in a computer book, the screen shots are clear and cogent to the text.

The Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, FrontPage, and Word coverage (I have not dipped into Publisher or Windows yet) was excellent, but I have to reserve a word for this book's coverage of Access. That program mystified me until I discovered this book. I have been able to take what I learned and use it to create a database for my company. The author of "Office 2003 All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies" has a real talent for teaching software, and my hat goes off to him.
