Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A must read for web site developers and not only


This is a must read if you have ever been involved in the development of a website. It is simple, easy, and quick to read, yet covers web usability in great detail. You do not need to be a "techie" to read this book (although I strongly urge techies involved in web development to read it).
I loved the example of how marketers, designers, and executives view what a website should be as well as the clear examples and illustrations of the book. As a web developer myself I could not recommend a better book on this topic.

One of the best books I've read in a very long time


Many high-level language programmers (Visual Basic, Delphi) are hesitant to approach Windows programming with C++. The topic seems unapproachable because of the learning curve involved.
The reality is, this stuff is very complex; however, in the hands of a good author or teacher the subject can be broken down into consumable portions and taught to even the most novice developer. I've tried three other books on this subject...none of them come close to this text! In fact, this book not only flows well, it almost acts as three books in one, first coving C++ (in depth, all though Win32 console based applications), then it approaches user interface using the MFC, next database development using ODBC, and lastly it devotes a chapter to ATL/COM development (which is far better written than the entire Beginning ATL COM 3.0 book by Wrox).
If you want to learn Visual C++, youc can do it! Start with this book.

Title: How Computers Work, Seventh Edition
Publisher: Que
Authors: Ron White, Timothy Edward Downs
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A GREAT resource for novices AND geeks, alike.


An impressive book in that both the novice as well as computer geeks can gain helpful insight. Each topic is divided into two parts; a broad overview followed by an in-depth explanation. After working with computers for ten years, I wouldn't be able to describe HOW hard drives store and retrieve data let alone a DVD (I can now!) The pictures are clear and concise and the write-ups, informative and logical. The section on the internet alone is worth the price of the book, the bonus is the CD ROM which is a very nice audio/visual presentation.
