Title: Balancing Agility and Discipline: A Guide for the Perplexed
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Barry Boehm, Richard Turner
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
At last: a balanced perspective


If you're contemplating the agile approaches such as XP and scrum, then this is a well written and objective comparison of the "disciplined" and agile approaches.
Apart from the title which suggests that agile workers aren't disciplined, it's invaluable.

Title: Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual
Publisher: Pogue Press
Authors: David McFarland
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Outstanding!


I purchased Dreamweaver MX a couple of weeks ago and needed a book to fill in the 'blanks' that the manual doesn't cover or explain to the depth that I wanted. This book is a perfect addition to learning the features of this application.
The fact that this book is published by O'Reilly was an added bonus.
Great job by David McFarland!

Title: Photoshop Elements 3 Down & Dirty Tricks (Voices That Matter)
Publisher: Peachpit Press
Authors: Scott Kelby
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent


After reading Kelby's book "the photoshop elements 3 book for digital photographers" I just had to have this book. I am enjoying it as much as the first book. I enjoy reading the humourous prelude to each chapter and then we get down to business. Beautiful pictures are included with step by step instruction, all in colour. It's very easy to understand and leads you along. You can skip around the book and do not need to read it from the start as each set of instructions include the full instructions.

Title: PeopleSoft HRMS Reporting (Prentice Hall Ptr Enterprise Resource Planning (Erp) Series)
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: Adam T. Bromwich
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Covers the main tables very well and accurate


This was a good book for me because I work with PeopleSoft HR7.5 converting to 8.0, I'm resonsible for the interfaces to payroll and extract data from the PeopleSoft tables for various vendors. This book covers all the important tables and has very good SQL samples. This book does not cover the online or PeopleTools but did very good job covering batch/reporting.
