Title: Web Navigation: Designing the User Experience
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Jennifer Fleming
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A book to read and refer to repeatedly


Fleming's technique involves a lot of interviews and case studies, which results in an overview of design issues that's a mile wide and an inch deep; some folks might need that and might indeed benefit from that.
I expect more from O'Reilly. Typically, O'Reilly books are much meatier than this, and certainly as a practical matter the level of technical detail presented here is quite low.
If you're a novice to site design, this book might help you quite a bit; likewise, if you're a nontechnical manager with one or more web developers on your staff, it might also be worth your time.
If you've kept up with the various web sites and print magazines which discuss aspects of the "user experience," your time and money can best be spent elsewhere.
O'Reilly has enjoyed a reputation for technical excellence that in my opinion no other technical publisher can come close to. If they put out many more books like this, though, I don't expect that to hold. Buy O'Reilly's excellent "Information Architecture" instead of this volume, read the design tutorials over at HotWIRED's "Webmonkey" and visit Jakob Neilsen's site, and save your shekels for something you can use.

Title: Windows NT Shell Scripting
Publisher: Pearson Education
Authors: Timothy Hill
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
It's the place to look to first...


This book is excelent. I will not go into details about the material covered as that has been already done. I will, however, comment on Hills' writing style. He is very to the point. There is little or no fluff or filler. The reader will not put the book down feeling as though somthing was missed. I appreciate the fact that the material was covered in depth in approximately 300 pages (300 small pages). Some authors would have turned a book on this subject into "The Complete Guide to NT Scripting Mastered and Unleashed. 1004 pages." I'm glad that was not the case.....Need a book on scripting? Get this book!

Awesome game, awesome book!


Well I just recieved Final Fantasy VII for my birthday and I loved it from the start. When one of my friends came over he had the Official Strat. Guide and so I took a look at it. It looked at first glance just like a bunch of pictures, but when I started reading it and it helped.
