Should be: How to be a dummy in network marketing

I have always been a fan of Zig, that is until this book. What ever happened to Zig's own Network Marketing Company? That's right it went under. Not even the marketing power of his name could save it and now he wants to tell you how to build a solid business? Zig is a great sales trainer and motivator but it's evident from this book that he didn't have much hands on experience in this business. At one point he says that you should be proud of being in the "sale profession" and then in another part he says the Network Marketing isn't about sales. Network Marketing is a legitimate business not a get rich quick scheme. Unfortunately too many people sell it as the latter and this time Zig goes along. As a seven figure earner myself I would recommend other sources like Leaders Club, for honest information about what it takes to really make it big in this business. If you want a great Ziglar book get, "5 Steps to Successful Selling."

Solid Information on Programming with C#

I am not the best programmer in the world, but have been able to write the programs I need for Windows using VB. When Microsoft introduced the .NET Framework I wanted to change to the new C# language, particularly to write both Windows Forms and ASP.NET programs.I had looked at several books, and was still struggling with the differences between VB and C#. While the focus of this book is on Windows Forms, I found its examples really good at filling in the gaps in my C# and for that matter Windows programming knowledge.

Very usable algorithm reference...

Some may say the title is a bit misleading. Sure, you'd want to be very interested in the subject to use this as your first introduction to algorithms, and the analysis and design of them. On the other hand, the book isn't especially advanced. It just covers a lot!
As a textbook, or for self-study, the book excels in clarity, coverage, and precision. It never lets go of the big picture, but still has every bit of detail you would want in an introductory text, with mathematical proofs of interesting properties of the algorithms introduced (and the first 6 chapters explain any mathematics you need).
As a reference, the book is immensely useful. Because almost any other algorithm book has a reasonable size, they must make a choice of what to cover. This book avoids the choice, and is therefore much thicker.
Of course, one book can't cover everything, the authors limit themselves to fundamental algorithms, anything related to parsing, semantic analysis, rewrite-systems, theorem-proving, computational biology, numerical analysis, computer graphics, machine-learning, signal-processing, or a number of other topics is better dealt with in a more specialized book. Still the coverage is unusually broad, and you would be hard pressed to find a more complete reference.
If you only want one book on algorithms, this is the book you want. If one algorithm-book isn't enough, you would still want this one, because it would be hard to even find a collection of books covering the same material. Besides, it will give you more shelf-space for other more advanced texts :-)

Great Book For Reviewing

This is a great book for reviewing for the A++ Cerfitication, It basicly goes over all the items breifly. I don't think it would be a good introduction book for A++ because of the breif overviews of diffrent sections. But the overall structure of the book is great.
