Very, very, good.

All of the HTML for the WWW editions have been oustanding, each with a little bit more information than the last. This one does not veer from this trend. This is an excellent tutorial book for beginners as well as a reference book for very experienced HTML coders who need help on some of the advanced features it covers, or forgot the syntax of a tag. It gives an intro to Javascript, CSS, browser compatibility, and incorporating CGI, among other things. Definitely a must have in any HTML coder or web developer's library.

Must have for networking library

I am grateful for this book. I like to really understand things and this book makes understanding a reality. It is an exemplary model of technical writing. This is the fourth book I have read on TCP/IP and it should have been the first. Since I am a network engineer with no background in programming some of the illustrations from BSD Unix sailed over my head but there was not enough of this to make me feel that any of my time was wasted. In fact, now I want to get a solid introduction to programming so that I can follow along with the rest of the series this book begins.

Great introduction to Java Threads!!!

What I learned in the first four chapters, helped me resolve some dead-lock and race conditions I was experiencing in my programs. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the book!
