Dell #1 PC Maker in the World! About time

Glad to see that Dell is now officially the #1 PC maker in the World following up on being the #1 in the World in workstations last fall and #1 in the USA for PCs in October 1999.I was reading a Wall Street Journal article about Dell and was impressed to see the generous compensation that Dell offers it's employees. MD definitely knows that people, including employees have value.Good to see Dells high ranking in Laptops in PC World. I wouldn't be surprised to see Dell topple Sony for the #1 spot in Laptops. Certaintly beating Compaq must be getting boring by now for Dell.Oh by the way, congratulations to Dell for taking the US server market from Compaq too.The book is excellent and a must read for any serious business reader.

Not Recommended

I am disappointed with this book. The author does not get to the important points, but distracts the readers with unnecessary details. He started off some sections by introducing two methods, recommends one of them and says that he will talk about the other one. But he never did.
Unless you have not used a computer for the last few years, you will not learn much from this book.

Only book needed for servlets and Jsps

I saw Marty's presentation at JavaOne and it was one of the most impressive I had seen there. I bought this book about two weeks ago, and I have already implemented so many of the ideas shared within it. Using Marty's simple techniques, and excellent ideas, my web-based app's speed as increased tremendously, as well as helped me find solutions to problems that I didn't think was possible to solve. This book is worth way more than what he is selling it for. BUY IT!

regular expressions are very useful

I have been getting into regular expressions, as I realized, how powerful and useful they are, I started to use more advanced features, and started to run into topics that weren't fully documented in the python or .NET documentation. I guess, I never looked at Perl documentation. Though this book turned out to be a real gem. Each time so far that I needed some help with regex, the book showed it to me quickly and easy to understand. Plus, O'Reilly books really rock. I'm going through a lot of technical books. And, by now O'Reilly convinced me that they have a good quality control.
