Color photos make it so clear


I have read several books, and while the words may be informative, there is noting like the pictures. This book was great for me because the pictures were sharp and clear, which allowed me to see the difference a few adjustments in my approach could make, without having to read the entire book. Honestly, I flipped through this book and found photos of what my shots looked like, and next to them was a photo of what they could look like.
This book -- though its title suggests it is for experts only -- is great for anyone who wants to become a better photographer in a hurry. And, when you have time, there are also great explanations in the text.

Great Book for learning Regular Expressions


Great book for learning Regular expressions, the only one I think. Even great for using it in VB with things like RegularX (activeX control for Visual Basic Regular Expressions, etc). I liked it to learn how to manipulate text.

Bad move on the CD


The book is an excellent summation of Lamothe's previous works and has some excellent new information, but I'm disappointed that the 3D information that was promised was shoved off onto a CD. In fact, I've had problems just getting the CD to work and it seems that I'm not alone on this. I have emailed the publisher on this problem and haven't received a response in several business days. I recommend this book to DirectX newbies but I suggest more advanced programmers to wait until volume II. I would also recommend waiting a few weeks before buying this book so they can work out the problems with the CD.

The Java Swing Bible


There is NO better book on Swing than Java Swing. Start here and end here, it is the best book for any serious Swing developer. I only wish they would make a 2nd edition and cover all the new topics that have come out in the new Swing release.
