Title: Sams Teach Yourself Java 2 in 21 Days (4th Edition) (Sams Teach Yourself)
Publisher: Sams
Authors: Rogers Cadenhead, Laura Lemay
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Action packed

This book gives you your money's worth. Unlike the "Dummies" books, full of unhelpful "spacer" information (meaning you have to read long and hard to strain out information) this book is totally action packed. You really have to pay attention, because if you "skim" it, you'll miss alot!
Good for fast learners, and people who like no nonsense style books. 4 stars for being a bit /too/ fast paced!

Title: Excel 2002 Bible
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: John Walkenbach, Brian Underdahl
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent & comprehensive guide

I tutor students in the use of Excel, and I have found that this Bible is worth every penny.
Walkenbach takes you into every nitty gritty detail, so that you can devise a fairly sophisticated lesson plan for those students who want to take their software know-how to a higher level.
His Bible really lives up to its name. I recommend this book for basic to intermediate classes.
Its only flaws? It weighs a ton. You can give yourself a hernia hefting this tome around!
And it is costly. However, I would argue that if you buy this book, you won't have to buy half a dozen other books, because almost everything you need is here.

A vast improvement on the second edition

TMTOWTDI-There's more than one way to do it, Perl's famous moto.This book is a lean mean learning machine. It's not for perl beginners though, like I was when I bought it. I found I had to research every other new concept while reading until I came across another fantastic book by OReilly called 'Learning Perl' which answered all of my questions, and paved my way to understanding the perl bible (aka, Programming Perl).
It won't have you sitting at the edge of your seat waiting to turn the next page, but it will have your customers sitting in suspense on how you wrote such a [kicking] program that does so many things, all while being so fast.
The best thing about this book combined with Learning Perl, is if you don't like (or in my case don't understand) how they did an example it's a cakewalk to program it entirley different with no adverse effects. Obviously I'd have to try pretty hard to program something differently than Larry Wall and make it faster or just as fast, but that's not the point.
