Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A must-have for Perl programmers


The definitive Perl book, it should be on the shelf of all Perl programmers. It is an excellent reference to the Perl language. My only complaint is that I felt like I was getting bogged down in picky language details. This is a refernce, though, and as such is exhaustive and excellent. Get another book for learning the language, though

Not good as expected


This book spends a lot of space in introducing C++ fundamentals. I think this book is only good for dummy users and the ones who really don't know programming in C++. It doesn't suit the title of the book. The example in VC is not good at all and the explanation is not understandable. I think the VC part is in very poor quality.

The best book on servlet programming


This is an excellent resource on Servlet programming. The author has taken a great care to cover all areas of servlet programming. The meat of the book starts from Chapter-7(Session tracking!).

The best book I've seen for Java learning


I just want to thank John Smiley for writing the book "Learn to Program with Java"!It's great, and a fantastic way of getting the subject over that doesn't leave you thinking "...but how did you make that leap??" or "...where did that come from?" and the classroom format I find really useful as it has a more 'real world' feel and the author has obviously heard all these questions from his students. I've not yet come up with one that hasn't already been discussed in the book!I have 4 or 5 books or other 'learning aids' for Java and none have them have enabled me to really get to grips with, let alone get enthusiatic about, Java! (or any other programming language for that matter!!)I'm not a programmer by profession (I'm a mechanical engineer) but I have long wanted to learn. I find the subject fascinating but until now have found it almost inpenetrable with too much jargon and 'geek-talk' in those books I have tried.I haven't yet finished the book/course, but progress is good and I wanted to tell all potential purchasers that John Smiley managed to open a window that has so far remained firmly closed. I would be happy to recommend this book to anyone who asks, and will do so whenever I get the chance!!
