Without This Book, I'd Be Lost

It gives gives away the story line! it sucked knowing who was going to die before they did! Not only that, it had a TOTALLY incomplete enemy skills list. The Unofficial (with the black cover) is way better. Mine is worn to the binding. It contains a complete enemy skill listing, item descriptions, and doesnt give away the story line. Not only that, it is way cheaper!

Great reference, but get Learning Perl if Perl is new to you

As with all O'Reilly books, Programming Perl is an excellent publication. The Camel, as it is known, is written for programmers who are experienced. Larry, Tom and Randal do an excellent job with this absolutely necessary piece.

A pleasure to read and re-read, again and again.

I have read some of the reviews of this book. I used the "Mac Bathroom Reader", as well as the Levy book "Insanely Great" during my quest to be CEO of Apple. Both were helpful in outlining the people that I would potentially be dealing with. Steve especially.
When working with people, it is nice to know all the angles. I believe Owen covers them well.
Apple is a story unto itself. Constantly evolving, never staying still. It requires addressing in the fashion that Owen uses. One that skips around, never stays in one place, yet covers all facets. Nice job. A true pleasure to read.

not just for game programmers

A 'best practices for C++' type of book using small snippets of code to illustrate the points. There is a lot here that can be applied to any type of C++ development. Makes a good addition to your Effective C++ and Design Patterns(GOF) books. You do own those, right?
