Exceptional Book

I consider myself a beginner Perl-hacker. I use Perl to accomplish directly applicable tasks for my work (Logic Designer). I hack as little as needed to get the job done.
Having said that, when I have a new problem to solve, this is the first book I peruse for ideas... and more often than not I find something very useful and applicable.

an insult to its readers and a true disservice to students

Badly return overly verbose book.
Has copied too many things from too many other books and has failed to acknowledge the sources.
No author index, no complete reference listing.
There better books for DSS. chota phree stuff.

Wonderful Book

Because this book has introduced so many VB6 features and thoroughly explained such a broad range of useful VB6 development methods, my desire to use VB has been rekindled. I would recommend that a developer purchase this book before buying any other VB6 books.

Excel 2003...the step by step improvement!

In comparing this version to earlier Excel Step by Step versions...there is no comparison! I have even contacted the author to let him know that this is the best Excel Step by Step book I have ever seen! Within the covers...Curtis puts his expertise to work...and the end result is a thorough and solid learning book that will teach you how to become an intermediate Excel user. While I prepare for my SkillSoft Excel 2003 Beginning Course...I find this book is the most ideal in terms of breaking down the different levels of study. It fits very well with my own preparation...and I have also been able to share my optimism with the Microsoft people who are interested in what someone would typically buy this book for. KUDOS to everyone involved...and I would highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in learning how to use Excel 2003!
