Title: XSLT : Programmer's Reference (Programmer to Programmer)
Publisher: Wrox
Authors: Michael Kay
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great XSLT (don't confuse with XML) reference

Okay, now that you know about having your data into XML, what do you do with it? And since browser compatibility with XML is somewhat limited and not really available to the general public (too much beta), you have to look at a more extensive way to show your XML than straight CSS.
This book is the one I've read that contains the BEST reference about XSLT. I've read a lot of book that covers only a little bit for each functions. This book does contain a lot of explanation to it.
This book is NOT MEANT as a way to LEARN XML/XSL but rather a way to BETTER PROGRAM/UNDERSTAND XSL once you know XML. That's what a Programmer's Reference is for.
If you are looking for a book to tell you what is XSLT, get the Beginning XML or Professional XML, depending on your XML level. Once you have mastered that, you'll be ready for this book.

Title: Introduction to Electrodynamics (3rd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: David J. Griffiths
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A wonderful bridge

I fully agree with the concepts expressed by other reviewers that have rated this book with five stars.
I add the following: Griffiths' book is a wonderful bridge between the elementary physics textbooks (for instance, "Physics" by Resnick, Halliday and Krane) and the advanced treatises in electrodynamics (of which "Classical Electrodynamics" by J.D. Jackson is a venerable example).It is compasionate to the student interested in the subject but who needs more handholding than others more mathematically gifted. A pleasure to read and to cherish. The world needs more David J. Griffiths.

PC Annoyances - Second Edition

I didn't think anything could be more useful than the first edition of PC Annoyances but Steve Bass manages to outdo himself with this edition. I work with my PC virtually all day long and Bass has captured many of the annoyances that annoy me; now I have ways to tame them.

This is not a book to relegate to your bookshelf; its place is right on your desk next to your PC. Now that I have it, I don't know how I managed without it.
