Es geçmeyin.

Ado.Net adına yazılmış ayrıntılı bir kitap sayılabilir. Yeni başlayanlar için, yada az bilgisi olanların faydalanbileceği bence etkili bir kitap. Ancak kitap özellikle konuyu anlattıktan sonra başvuru kısmında bazen kodları tekrarlıyor. Yada anlattığının kalanını bu kısımda veriyor. Bu biraz kafa karıştırıcı olabiliyor. Web kısmıyla ilgili olan bölümleri biraz cılız bulsam da yeterli. Bu kitap da kaynak başvuru olmayı hak eder kalitededir. Bence es geçmeyin.

Title: HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide, Fifth Edition

Clear, concise, well organized

I've been coding in various programming languages for some time now, and I have found the most useful books when you're actually doing the work are the books that have clear, concise information readily available.
What I've discovered with books of the programming genre is that most of them attempt to go into a great deal of theory and abstract thought while conveying their message. And while there certainly is an appropriate arena for said discussion, a client site during working hours is not one of them.
HTML 4 for the WWW is a fantastic reference guide that will help the reader accomplish many of the basic tasks encountered when coding a static web page. A simple look in the table of contents re-directs the reader to a very understandable step by step approach of how to implement a specific feature.
This book should be part of every web developer's library. I highly recommend it.

A readable Mobius strip

If you have never read this book, then I'd like to say that it has a lot of the most greatest knowledge out there. It doesn't just deal with math, art, and music, but also with zen, philosophy, self-ref, self-rep, holism, reductionism, and everything else that is considered pure knowledge of cognitive science and general intelligence. I don't know why some of the people rating it have no idea of what's it about; it's not about Godel's theorem like many think it is, it's about consciousness and how the power of the mind and the "I" comes out of the inanimate matter that creates us. That's not it, the second part of the book talks about computer programming and AI. Can a computer program ever have a sense of self or compose meaningful music? Hofstadter's response to the second one was: "Only if that AI could go through the maze of life on it's own, fighting it's way through it and feeling the cold of a chilly night, the longing for a cherished hand, the inaccessibility of a distant town, the regenaration after a human death, the...and only then can it be considered to do so."This book really has more than that. I can't say all of the things mentioned in it, not in this tiny little review, but I can say that you should probably read it and hopefully understand it because it truly is a masterpiece.
