Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

I started studying Java by this book. I could understand every topic explained by this author, i never get confused. He really is a great teacher. Even the vocabulary he uses is clean and easy (this is important for a non-english native)I always get back to this book to remember a concept that i had forgotten.

Nearly indispensable

I say "nearly" because pretty much everything in the book can be found on the web in some form or another. When I was a LaTeX beginner, though, I found it much easier to learn things from a book than by downloading lots of files and trying to sort through them or by bookmarking webpages. As a more experienced LaTeX user, I find it is sometimes handy to have a book with sticky-note markers you can flip to when you are trying to remember how to make the symbol you want instead of trying to look up a cheat sheet on the web. Good for beginners, and good to grow into, as I doubt you'll jump into BibTeX and indexes right away. I didn't, but I was glad to have those sections when I needed them. I am also glad to see that some material on PDF has been added in this edition, though I wouldn't be able to comment on it as my edition is older.

Compared to what I paid when I bought a previous edition, this is a steal for such a useful book.

Excellent introduction to HTML

As an HTML instructor I used this book as a supplement to our corporate training materials. I found the explanations clear and straightforward, the examples useful, and the reference material helpful. It is a practical, useful guide that can help you quickly and efficiently design a website.

Adobe Does it Again!

I am in the process of switching over from a PC and Paint Shop Pro to a Mac with Photoshop 7 - This book has been exactly what I was looking for! Very detailed and lots of notes for shortcuts, etc. I highly recommend it for first time Photoshop users, as well as long time Photoshop users.
