Title: PC Annoyances, Second Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly & Associates
Authors: Steve Bass
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Outstanding practical tips

Steve's sense of humor and style is perhaps the best in the PC business - but that's not the only (or even the main) reason to read this book. It's chock full of SOLUTIONS to those pebbles in your PC shoe that may not seem like a very big deal to Bill Gates & Co. or other industry powers-that-be, but can literally drive you (and me) CRAZY!

If there were any justice in the PC cosmos, Steve Bass would be rich and Bill Gates would be a LOT more helpful - but things being as they are, I'll settle for knowing that Steve Bass is enormously helpful and that buying this book just might help encourage him to write another (and another and another...)

The first or next Data Modeling book you should buy!

Simply put, this is a great resource to have for the novice or well versed data modeler. The book is is broken down into helpful sections such as: People & Organizations, Accounting & Budgeting and even a chapter on how to implement the Universal Data Model. This is exactly what you would expect from modeling gurus such as Len Silverston, Bill Inmon & Natalie Arsenault. A must have!!!

my favorite computer book

This is easily the most useful computer book I've used. I refer to the Cookbook constantly, and it shows--the binding has come undone and the cover is falling off.
I would actually recommend purchasing this before Programming Perl, and after Learning Perl. The recipes provide quick solutions to common problems, but each recipe (and each chapter) includes a tremendous amount of background information and gloss. The wisdom of this approach is especially apparent if you take a look at the recently released PHP Developer's Cookbook.
Buy it.
