Next edition slated for 2000...

A great book. It's really amazing. All computer graphics knowledge is here. Calling it "the bible of computer graphics" is not a mistake.

High level architectural business models for .NET

This is a huge book that covers a large swatch of business object material for .NET. It's unusual because I would expect to see this type of material for Java. It starts with a technology overview of the web and related technologies. It then goes into Object Oriented Analysis and Design. And finishes off with the implementation of these architectural concepts on the .NET platform. About a third of the book is spent in each area.

I found the overall content wasn't particularly tight and focused, which adds to the books size, which is large for an architectural book. That being said there are a lot of good ideas and the content is well organized. If you are an architect looking to migrate to the .NET platform you should have a look at this book.

Maybe for a beginner

This book is a bit hard to follow. If you are a beginner it may be good for you but otherwise it lacks substance. I used it mostly as a reference and even that was hard as the examples could have pertained more to real world applications.All said the author could definitely have put a bit more work in the book to bring it up from its mediocrity and closer to its $ value.
