Practical, educational, original, and complete Java Book !


This is the best book for anyone interested in practical applications of Java as well as other internet tools such as HTML, CGI, and Javascript. It has all the practical and pedagogical tools required for adopting it as a college textbook, and it is also very well suited for anyone interested in a self-learning Java book. Practical examples are provided to illustrate the concepts and techniques of Java, HTML, CGI, and Javascript. I strongly recommend it.

Awesome intro to c++


If your new to programming or c++ BUY THIS BOOK. The pure c++ portion is great. I learned so much so quickly and easily I was amazed. Ivor's writing style and flow leads perfectly from chapter to chapter and explains concepts precisely without any confusing blabber. The pace is a little quick but once you get used to it, it is great, and you will find yourself flying through the chapters with ease as long as you put good effort into it. The windows portion is pretty good and atleast I have a good basic idea of windows programming but definately not enough to code a windows program of much depth. I skipped the last couple chapters as it involved ole and com stuff which was a little too much for me but I will come back to it later when I need it. Ivor really stuffs a massive amount of info into the pages and has a well thought out format. All in all this book is worth 6 stars and every penny of that 40 bucks. GREAT BOOK!!!

Beautiful, engrossing, classic, seminal.


Even though Thomas Cleary claims Hofstadter doesn't really grok Zen, any serious student of the nature of the mind should read this Pulitzer-Prize winning labor of love.
