Title: Apple Confidential 2.0: The Definitive History of the World's Most Colorful Company
Publisher: No Starch Press
Authors: Owen Linzmayer, Owen W. Linzmayer
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
re-read of The Mac Bathroom Reader


Apple Confidential takes a unique perspective of the apple story. While I agree with the fact that the author sometimes repeats himself, the well researched facts and interesting trivia more than make up for those few mistakes. Mr. Linzmayer, amazingly enough, is able to dig under the huge pile of myths surrounding the mac and apple and tell the story, as it was written. The author is particularly good at pointing out credit where it is due, a shortcoming in other Apple books. This is one not to miss

Better than a college class!


Digital Compositing in Depth is a fantastic book! The info given will be a HUGE help to anyone in or wanting to get in to the visual effects field. The fact the book comes with 2 CD's containing both materials and demo versions of several compositing packages. Way cool! I've been doing visual effects for 10 years now and wish I had Doug Kelly's book back when I was starting out, it would have made the "school of hard knocks" a lot easier!

This book will lead you on your way to an EJB world...


The ability of Monson-Haefel to communicate its comprehension of such a technology, had made this book easy to read, and highly understandable. Be just aware that the spec concerned is 1.0...
