Title: Mastering Algorithms with C (Mastering)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Kyle Loudon
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Fantastic addition to any personal libriuary.

Just what I needed. One of those books I had to ring in sick to work, sit at home and read.
Writing commercial c applications for the Internet, I was looking for a book to give me assistence with my coding. What I found was something which caused me to go back and rewrite a lot of my work!
Starting by explaining exactly how memory is managed when calling fuctions, going on to explain, in english, how many commonly used stuctures in c work. Everything from hash tables to encryption. A good read for anybody interested in how code works. Essential for anybody wishing to write quality programs.
The best bit. This comes with c libruaries uncompiled with examples, fully explained in the text. Many of which I have used. Reliable, easy to implement and dramatically increase the quality of my code. Want a easy to use binary search tree? A few minutes work and it's there.
I also emaild the author, who was more than happy to help with a question.
Personally speaking, one of the best computer books I have ever bought.

Wonderful SQL Reference

Title: Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects, Vol. 1: The Essentials (3rd Edition, Version 6.5)
Publisher: CMP Books
Authors: Trish Meyer, Chris Meyer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

When I purchased this book, I knew nothing about AE. I didn't even want to look at the program without a guide to follow. I've heard plenty of great things about the Meyers and bought both the CMG volumes. So far I'm only through the first chapter and I'm amazed at how easy their instructions are to follow. I realize that AE is a complicated software to use. But by slowly going through the tutorials, I'm getting a handle of the capabilities of the software and eventually get good enough to concentrate on the creative aspects of compositing. I haven't read any of the other AE books but these two are definitely MUST HAVES.

Best eBay Book - Very Comprehensive - Great Resource

Having been an eBay buyer for some time, I found myself wanting to learn how I can make money using eBay. I came across this book and literally engulfed myself into the details...page by page. Not long after, I was selling items on eBay and doing very well.
This is a very comprehensive book for folks who want to start a business using eBay. I would highly recommend this book.
