Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Good Advice from The Common Sense Guru


This is a must read if you have ever been involved in the development of a website. It is simple, easy, and quick to read, yet covers web usability in great detail. You do not need to be a "techie" to read this book (although I strongly urge techies involved in web development to read it).
I loved the example of how marketers, designers, and executives view what a website should be as well as the clear examples and illustrations of the book. As a web developer myself I could not recommend a better book on this topic.

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A must have for all serious web devlopers


This book has exceeded all my expectations by far in underscoring important real-life developer¡¯s problems and solutions. It includes many solutions and behind the scene explanation of many servlet/JSP technologies that are not found any where else. I am also impressed by the ease of learning of an almost complete array of servlet/JSP technologies as it pertains to web development. Having read many books available in JSP technologies, this book is a must have for all serious web developers who wish to apply JSP technologies daily.

Title: Building Robots With Lego Mindstorms : The Ultimate Tool for Mindstorms Maniacs

Interesting... Very Interesting


This is a great book on building Lego Mindstorms robots. The chapter topics are well chosen and Mario's enthusiasm for the topic is infectious. There are chapters on everything from the basics (geometry, gears, pneumatic theory, etc..) to different types of projects (mobile robots, grabber arms, walkers, vehicles, and games). Literally hundreds of hours worth of Lego Mindstorms projects are packed inside. Each project has a lot going for it.The photographs are of a surprising quality and it's evident the authors spared no effort in constructing them. For example, the pneumatics chapter shows a cutaway section of a piston with airflow conveniently labeled. This sort of attention to detail really helps with understanding.The book is ideal for everyone from the child who wants to make robots from popular movies, to the serious builder who wants to make a robot arm for playing chess, to the hardcore engineer who wants to make vehicles worthy of Mars exploration. I highly recommend this book, even if you just want to flip through the pages and marvel at the robots.
