THE book to introduce algorithms

You shouldn't have to read this review... this book is unmatched in it's field - it's a great book for someone with no background in algorithms to start learning. The exercises are very interesting with some being more mathematical while others are thought provoking extensions to material covered in the book. It's easily the bible in this field. After this one can go on to more advanced specialized material like Papadimitriou, Motwani and Raghavan etc. If you don't have this book and you work with ANY kind of algorithms or do any kind of programming, you owe it to yourself to get it.

Another hacking exposed remix

Hacking exposed books are begining to all look the same to me, and this is an excellent example of that. This is an OK book if you do not have many/any of the others in the series, but I do not recommend it if you do. There is a lot of overlap.

Page.....What pages???

This book might be useful, but the build quality is so low it is not worth the effort to find out. After two attempts and 2+ weeks of wasted time I have yet to receive a copy that is not missing from 1423-1470. Do yourself a favor and stick with O'Reilly (at least the book will not be missing parts). If you think you are going to use the index to find something, don't waste your time A-D is missing. Lets say you want to look into auto increment.....alter table....hmm hard to guess how many topics are between A and D.

Photoshop 7 Killer Tips Review

All we can say for Photoshop 7 Killer Tips is... GET IT NOW! Do not hesitate, do not wait. Just go out and buy it now - PERIOD!
This book will teach you tips that will save time on your very next project. The book is for both beginners and advanced users, however advanced users will be heard frequently saying "DOH!" while reading, as the book covers things we now do the hard way (aka bad habits) every day in Photoshop.
