The best entry-level title on patterns

I was pretty surprised to see the Head First team covering design patterns, since the topic easily lend to dry, academic, books. I am even more surprised by the end results,
It's the best entry-level title on patterns I ever read. The authors brilliantly managed to keep the reader engaged and cover the pattern inside their contest (unlike other books where they are in a vacuum). Be only advised that a basic understanding of Java is required to get the best out of this book

Title: Microsoft Windows Scripting Self-Paced Learning Guide
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Ed Wilson

Little Known but Powerful

There are a lot of general administrative tasks that can be scripted so that you don't have to specifically key in each and every little step in the process. The result is a tremendous increase in both speed and accuracy.

Scripting in many forms is included with Windows, but relatively few people realize that this is a programming language/system in its own right.

This book, published by Microsoft Press breaks new ground in making scripts easy to use in a wide variety of application areas. The CD-ROM included with the book contains a hundred useful scrips that handle a lot of tasks and even better are a good place to start modifying to get exactly what you want.

A terrific book for a course in Ecommerce and Marketing

I have adopted this book as a required text for an Ecommerce and Marketing course that I am teaching during the Spring 2000 semester at Boston University. The text is well-written and presents a fine blend of theory and practice. Hanson is true to the title of his book as he provides some "principles" that should indeed endure. Given the rapid pace of change in e-commerce, this is commendable. I believe that this book offers a great introduction to anyone who wants to either practice or simply learn about Internet marketing.
