Title: Beginning XML (Programmer to Programmer)
Publisher: Wrox
Authors: David Hunter, Andrew Watt, Jeff Rafter, Kurt Cagle, Jon Duckett, Bill Patterson
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
a confused book

The book is trying to incorporate lots of stuff, in the process confusing the programmers. I have lots of experience with VB and ASP and the reason I bought this book was because I thought that I can improve upon my internet skills and also because I understood that XML was a relatively easy technology to learn. But the author in this book is just introducing the programmer to various xml related technologies without explaining clearly what is for what and what is deemed as useful for average programmer.
Maybe I was confused when I bought this book!!

Title: The Humane Interface: New Directions for Designing Interactive Systems
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
A good look into the insights of interface design.

'The Humane Interface' was a very good book. I particularly enjoyed the discussion about the metrics used to quantify the efficiency of a given interface based on its information content. Important stuff.
That portion of the book should be required reading for anyone designing an interface.

Title: SAP NetWeaver For Dummies
Publisher: For Dummies
Authors: Dan Woods, Jeffrey Word
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Fine for an overview, but not for nuts and bolts

This book provides an excellent overview of SAP's Netweaver, and might be appropriate for an IT manager. But if you're looking for a good technical reference book that you'd have sitting open next to you while developing an XI interface or a Web Services application, keep looking. WIth few exceptions, this book only tells you *what* SAP Netweaver can do, not how to actually go about doing any of it.
