Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5

Extremely Useful and Usable * Top-notch! I've read most of the current books out on web usability and user-centered design and must say this book was better than I expected. Full of down-to-earth practical techniques, design tips, usability testing recommendations, and very clear advice. I have read it twice, and refer to it frequently. Krug does a great job of giving you just what you need, and in a logical, concise manner.

Title: SAP R/3 Administrator's Handbook
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Authors: Jose Antonio Hernandez
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Still very useful even if you are on 40x.

I have been doing R/3 Technical Consulting for two years and this is my one and only reference book. It explains the basics of the system architecture and covers major areas, such as user management, authorization profiles, spool system, background processing, basic system monitoring and database concepts (Oracle only).
The information presened in this book is well organized and very helpful on the day-to-day system management.
Don't buy this book if you are looking for detailed information on system installation, ABAP programming and performance tuning.

Title: Starting an Online Business for Dummies, Third Edition
Publisher: For Dummies
Authors: Greg Holden
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Basic information, but not hands-on enough

This book offers a good introduction to what you need to start your own online business. All aspects of starting such a business is covered, and after I read the book I could proudly say I knew the how's (as well as what's), and I was on my way starting a business.
But there are two major flaws to this book: first, it's not very readable, and second, it doesn't give you enough hands-on information. There are superfluous step-by-step instructions on how to use FrontPage Express, but the author doesn't tell you much about building store fronts or how to accept credit cards online, two of the more pressing topics for someone wishing to start a e-business.
The CD is a big disappointment. Just a collection of demoware and shareware. It is an environmental waste and makes the book a little pricier than it should be.

Title: Wireless Hacks
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Rob Flickenger
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Good book of wireless tips

This is the kind of book that will tell you that a packet-capture program is a "hack"... Spends a lot of pages describing common features or well-known programs (Kismet, NetStumbler).The book tries to cover Windows, Linux and MacOS and achieves that in a very low degree.Save your money, everything on this book can be found on the internet, with even a better structure than the "index style" this book has ("Hack#1", "Hack#2" and so on).Very disappointed. Makes me wonder if other posts came from O'Reilly itself.
