Title: Programming ColdFusion MX, 2nd Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Rob Brooks-Bilson
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Execellent Resource for Experienced Programmers

In the early days of ColdFusion, there were a couple of beginner books, but once you gained some experience, you had to go online for help. Nowadays, there are several advanced books from which to choose. "Programming ColdFusion MX" by Rob Brooks-Bilson is a good choice as an all-around resource for experienced programmers.
If you're using CF 4.5 or up, and plan to move up to the Java-based ColdFusion MX like a third of our user group members, this is the book for you. Skip the first five chapters and dive in.
Every chapter contains usable code examples for complex data, maintaining state and form control. There are plenty of advanced topics, including a full chapter on Advanced Database Techniques. The book is updated to cover the latest release of CFMX 6.1.
If you're interested in programming from CF to Flash using Flash Remoting, this book gets right to the meat of connecting and passing data back and forth. You won't learn how to layout your movie, but there are plenty of resources for Flash MX.
This book is a worthwhile addition to your library!

Second edition adds great improvements

All of the reviews of this book from April 2004 and earlier are based on the 1st edition, not this new second edition which didn't publish until the end of April 2004. The second edition adds some new great coverage of dynamic HTML in more recent browser versions and a new chapter on JavaScript and XML. Throughout the book there are many new examples and all of the code is now updated to be sure it works with the latest browser versions.

Title: How I Trade for a Living (Wiley Online Trading for a Living)
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Gary Smith
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Superb book!

I have read both of Gary Smith's books (Live the Dream and this latest book). Both are excellent. Gary Smith separates what's important in stock futures trading from the garbage. He reveals numerous contrarian strategies, sentiment indicators, and some technical indicators that he follows. People, trading successfully is not easy and it's not a static system. Everything is constantly evolving. Reading Smith's books has driven this point home with me. Smith also stresses the importance of being able to synthesize particular indicators to get a feel for how to trade. Excellent, insightful book! I feel sorry for others who strongly disagree...perhaps you'll reconsider after your trading account dwindles. (And no, I'm not related to Gary Smith.)

From a Customer

My company is using this book to teach classes on BusinessObjects. It has been very convenient, because there are so many examples. It is a little expensive, which is why I gave it four stars.
