A "must have" for ASP developers

An excelent reference, it explains ASP from top to bottom. I've had it for over 3 months and everytime I needed to look up something about ASP it has given me the answer.

Best Visual C++ 6 Book Ever!

I would recommend this book to anyone who is starting to program in Visual C++ 6. At first I knew nothing of C++, and after a few weeks of reading and practicing I am on my way of making some very good programs. It was well worth the money. Once again thank you for making my programming dreams come true.

IBM Cert. ->You will need NewRds' Inside XSLT CH4,7,~8 too

This will form the basis for preparing materials for the World Wide Web for years to come. XML/XSLT are sufficiently usable examples of SGML potential to make possible the "everyone, everything connected" dream that we all long for.
The only real "problem" is that it's in print so you can't contract/expand the too-lengthy code examples that interfere with a smooth read of the essential materials. The code is, after all, for machines to read. The rest of us just jump over it.
A really nice book.

Great things in small packages...

I've always been more of a GUI-type user, and even the old DOS commands never did much for me. But now that I'm moving into the world of Linux, I need to understand the power of the command line. To that end, I got a review copy of the Linux Pocket Guide by Daniel J. Barrett (O'Reilly). I have a feeling this will become a dog-eared favorite on my bookshelf.

Normally I'd list a chapter breakout, but there's just too many "chapters" here to do so. Suffice it to say that if it's a shell command in Linux, it's in here somewhere. The great thing is that you get the command and a list of the useful options, along with the syntax in less than half a page (and the book is small!). So instead of hauling down the large volume and scrolling through multiple pages, you can get right to the command you need with the options you're probably looking for.

For a beginner like me, it will help to make me more comfortable with many of the basics of command line work. For experts, it will be the quick reference for that particular option that you can't remember the capitalization rules for...

Short, concise, easy to understand, and packed with meat... What more could you want in a reference manual? This is a keeper.
