Title: The Art and Science of Digital Compositing
Publisher: Morgan Kaufmann
Authors: Ron Brinkmann
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Ron's book gives not only the basics for upcoming compositors and students, but goes into depth about the various issues that face more experienced compositors as well. Highly reccomended, and a great desk resource-- it saved me more than once.

Title: Compilers
Publisher: Addison Wesley
Authors: Alfred V. Aho, Ravi Sethi, Jeffrey D. Ullman
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5

This is the most disorganized text book I've ever read in English.That's right ; it covers all the aspects for designing a compiler but the order of the subjects given are horrible.For example the author first tries to define a subject in one section,then mysteriously he gives up and begins to tell another subject.Later you are faced with the unfinished subject in some other section but usually that's completely same as the previous section.But the most important carelessness here is the lack of the definitions of the terms.You are faced with lots of terms while trying to understand the subject but those terms are usually not well-defined or they are defined with some other sick-defined terms.Which is from scientific point of view- a shame.There seem to be details everywhere but you never feel mastering the compiler thing because of the crumble.Very disappointing.

Title: Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Francesco Balena
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
One of the best technical books I've read recently

I'm an experienced C++ programmer and I needed to learn VB. This book is superb for me. It is extremely clearly written, and manages to not be boring at all. I especially like the example code, which is clear and to the point and written in a very good solid style. It's all here but it doesn't put you to sleep. The author has judged very well what people need to be told and what he can assume they already know. There are a lot of tips and tricks scattered around, which appear to be real tips gained from the author's experience, not just cleverness - it's obvious that the author really knows the subject, and hasn't just regurgitated the manual. I see he has a VB.NET book coming out, that's the one I'll go for.
