The best of learning operating systems theory

If your not an expert in computer science, or even if you are just a beginner, you'll find this book quite useful no matter the operating system you work with. This is also an entertaining book, since it can be read from the beginning to the end the same way you could do it with an exciting novel.Concepts are explained very clearly and, if you'd like to go deeper in any topic, there's an extensive bibliography for every chapter. The document's structure is the same along the book, beginning with introductory text, an ending with a summary of concepts.Don't be afraid if you're not a brilliant hacker. This book explains everything in such a friendly way, that it makes operating systems theory appear easier than other operating systems books do. Everybody can learn from it!

What a book of ColdFusion MX!

The book is quite easy to read and very easy to follow the examples. You'll find that in a very short time you can develop applications that are useful and the satisfaction from that is immense. I used to work at an e-commerce organisation that used this product and I really despised it, until I read this book and got to "know" a little more about Cold Fusion. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has any interest in developing an application, in quick time.

Title: Advanced Perl Programming

Too plain to be "advanced"

This is probably one of the poorer books in my O'Reilly collection. While all the other books I own from them seem to cover all basis of a particular topic, from concept to implementation to futher reading, this book provides only a brieft introduction with small and impratical examples, often filled with errors. It seems like the author simply saw a market for this book and wrote it fast fast as possible. If you have no clue as to some of the advanced features available for PERL, this one is for you. If you want truely useful references, try the perl website.

A great TCP/IP book

When I purchased this book, I was concerned that it was outdated. As I quickly learned, great books are never outdated and this is one of them. I was a beginner in my level of knowledge of TCP/IP before I read Stevens' book. After, I would call myself an intermediate, only because of my lack of enough tangible experience. Reading this book and using the information to analyze traffic dumps gave me a level of confidence in working with TCP/IP that I did not possess before.
