Title: Faster Smarter Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003 (Faster Smarter)

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

I spent an hour in the bookstore looking for a good book to get me started on FrontPage. For me it was a choice of the best book for the money and $50 seemed way too much to spend on a book plus I didn't think I need a huge book.
There are more than a few $20-25 FrontPage books trust me. The choice to get this book came down to the fact it is the best book. In 350 pages it covers everything I am ever going to do on FrontPage and then some. I liked the cut to the chase approach. Chapter 1 was excellent to get me up to speed on all the technologies adn features needed. Chapters 4-9 is where I've spent the most time. I read each chapter, then used the examples to create my site.
Nothing but praise for this excellent book. I have shared it with several colleagues who set up sites as well.

thick/bad db book

This book has just the right mix of database theory and its practical applications. I've studied other books of the ilk and found that this book has a leg up on them in that it doesn't get too hung up on providing proofs for concepts that are either very intuitive or just not worth going into too detailed a proof for. It also provides a good review of "modern" database techniques like Object Oriented database, deductive databases, etc.
The book could use a little more polish in terms of grammatical correctness. Besides, in my opinion, some concepts, as explained in the book, are just plain wrong. There is no way for one to contact the authors for clarification either.

I was confused, and this just cleared everything up

This is the definitive routing reference for the network engineer. It is one of the better written technical reference books for the experienced to expert technician working with internetworking issues. This books covers complex routing protocols such as OSPF and BGP4 in such a way that novices are not left behind, while more advanced readers don't feel they are being "talked down to".
