Most comprehensive ASP.NET book available.....


This book is the most comprehensive ASP.NET book I have read (and I have read 5+ ASP.NET books). There are over 180 pages on the ASP.NET Server controls. Almost 300 pages on ADO.NET and how to best leverage the new data list controls. 70 pages on securing your ASP.NET applications (about 50 more than the other books). ASP.NET Unleashed is heads and shoulders above the rest with regards to its coverage of building custom controls (something we should all get used to doing). In addition to the great material mentioned above, you will learn how to build a search page using ASP.NET and SQL Server, send an email from your ASP.NET page, create graphics on the fly, and more. You will be happy to know that there are also TWO full blown ASP.NET applications to pick apart, copy, and learn from!
I have only mentioned *some* of the things covered in this book. As I said, you will not find a more comprehensive ASP.NET book anywhere.

best VBScript reference book available


I have always favored O'Reilly reference books and this one is no exception. It is the only book I need for writing VBScript in Active Server Pages. Being a programmer who never programmed in VB before but wanted to learn ASP, I needed a complete, well-indexed guide to the language - THIS IS IT!

Connecting the dots, frames, layers, etc.


As much as the individual product documentation helps you learn the individual programs, it takes a book like this to really enable you to focusing the power of all these packages on DV and animation projects. It's a great resource for someone who is more familiar with using film make the conversion to digital video.

Shakespeare for compiler writers


I have read two books on compiler and this one certainly is better. It's not an easy book but its not too difficult either. Book is well compiled and information is well organized. Examples are mostly in C language so 'C' is the pre-requisite for this but that's it. I don't think you need any additional help to digest this book. After reading this one, you can make a fully functional compiler of you own.
