Title: Using SANs and NAS
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: W. Curtis Preston
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Good introduction

This book is really good at bringing together a lot of different details together having it make sense. It has been a couple of years since I worked on SANs and reading this book really refreshed the concepts for me. W. Curtis Preston's writing style is very easy to follow as he usually adds in insightful side items to break up the book a bit. I was expecting a very well written book as I also read his backup & recovery book which I really enjoyed too. I reccomend this book to anyone who is starting to investigate san or nas solutions or wants to get a good solid starting point with those technologies.

Right to the Core

I would highly recommend Apple Confidential 2.0 to ANY computer user, whether a PC slave or dedicated Mac addict.
Mr. Linzmayer's insight into the Apple world should answer any questions regarding the history of personal computers and his knowledge of the Apple Company is second to none.
Who knows, after reading the book, current PC users may even acknowledge that the Mac and Apple operating system is superior and may even consider a switch as many of us have done.

Wish I had my money back!

The author spent most of this book trying to be funny. He Failed! Very poor layout. No logical flow. All in all quite useless. Would not recommend at any price!

I didn't like it

Well... The book is not bad but chapter III lacks clarity...Chapter III is supposed to give mathematical insights into genetic algorithms. It starts by proving the schema theorem (which is OK) and then tries to cover the math related to GA's. This chapter is very difficult to follow. Unless you are familar with GA's and the math related to them this chapter is difficult to understand
