Good book from start to finish


I really liked this book since it gives a very good overall features and how to's in adddition to advice on how to deliver a presentation in PowerPoint. With this book, you can create a very professional looking powerpoint presentation in an instant. Easy to navigate through the pages and sufficient amount of images to go along with the step by step instruction.

PowerPoint is a must these days for both college students and professional work and this book is a great buy and the price is right. Makes a good reference book.

Title: Linux Pocket Guide

Indispensible reference


The Linux Pocket Guide will prove to be an indispensible reference for new linux users as well as those with years of experience. This guide covers just about every command you will ever need while using linux, as well as all of the options that each command supports. The fact that it is oriented towards the new Fedora Core releases from Red Hat will also make this guide more valuable to the many new users who are being attracted to linux by this new distribution.
I especially liked the fact that the author exposes the 'internal' commands that are built into the shell, also describes the 'external' commands that are not part of the shell, and let's the user know which ones are which.
Mr. Barrett also includes information as to where the command is stored on disk, the directory and file name, and even which package is used to install the command.
This guide has made administering my systems much easier, and I will keep a copy of this pocket guide right next to my personal linux system at all times.

Title: The Brand Gap: How to Bridge the Distance Between Business Strategy and Design

It IS what they say it is!


Can't fully explain the concept of brand to your clients? Now you can. Neumeier has made it easy for designers and clients. The book jumpstarts by detailing what brand is and isn't. Then it launches into the five disciplines of branding. The book states on the cover that it's only an overview. This is true, however, Brand Gap condenses enough wisdom in here to clearly define brand, show you why brand is more important than ever in today's economy, and more importantly, how its power can be harnessed (for good, not evil). I especially appreciated his thoughts on design & packaging and their impact on brand/brand awareness. You can save the ink in your highlighter -- every word is a gem. "Brand is not what you say it is. It's what THEY say it is."

Workflow that really DOES work!


"Web ReDesign: Workflow that Works" is worth it's weight in gold! Leave it up to two women to organize the complex tasks involved in web remodeling and arrange the parts into easy to manage, step by step guidelines.
Although I've been using most of the processes mentioned here in my own business for years, Goto and Cotler managed to think of things that I've been missing, and offer new process explanations that even my most inexperienced clients can understand.
As if their expert advice, ease of use and wealth of information weren't enough, the authors have included links to website downloads of the forms and layout schemes they recommend. If you only invest in one "Internet Advice" book this year, make it this one!
