Finally a Book for Non-Lawyers

This is good for non-lawyers who work in management and have no idea what IP means, nor how to make this form of property benefit (or not harm) your company.
This book whet my appetite for more details. I would recommend this book for anyone who needs a crash course in IP.

Mastering Windows 2000 Server

Before I bought this book, I had on my book shelf "Inside Windows 2000 Server" by Boswell. I tried to comprehend the contents of the book, and I was I would say somewhat successful. But always at the end of the reading of a chapter or two, I wasn't quite satisfied with the book. However, I think it's still a good book, to be conservative in my judgment. I think "Mastering Windows 2000 Server" is at least just as good as "Inside Windows 2000 Server," if not significantly better. One thing I like better about this book is that, unlike Boswell's book, it's less theoretical and more direct and practical. I am a beginner with an ambitiion to be proficient in using and administering Windows 2000 Server. If this book is comprehensible and interesting to a beginner like me, I would say this book might be so to most people, because as for me, I used to abhor any technical books because I could hardly understand them. Unlike the same author's "Mastering Windows NT Server," it's $20 less expensive. But it should be a good investment on condition you make use of it to its maximum potential.

Excellent book - for the ABSOLUTE beginner.

This is a great book if you are new to the world of programming and want to get your teeth into some basic ASP development, it walks you through all the basics of programming (or should i say scripting) using VBScript and ASP - but be warned - If you have done any kind of development before youll quickly hit the limits of this book, and may find yourself better off with Professional ASP 3.0

Title: Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference (2nd Edition)

Don't let "Dynamic HTML" title fool you... it's got more!

The most important thing I can stress in my review is that this book is a reference. If you are new to programming, I would suggest getting more of a tutorial-based book. If you've done any work with HTML, scripting languages, and/or object-oriented programming, you won't believe how handy this book is.
This book is not just Dynamic HTML. The text is divided in to 5 different reference sections: Applying Dynamic HTML, HTML reference, DOM (Document Object Model), CSS reference & JavaScript reference. In fact, I'm trying to learn JavaScript and I almost feel that the JS reference contained within this book is so good, I don't need O'Reilly's JavaScript Definitive Guide.
One of the great things about this book is the treatment of IE vs. Netscape. For example, in the HTML reference, the author points out code syntax differences for each tag for both browsers. In the JavaScript reference, the author uses a consistent method of telling you after which browser version the specific object, property, and method is supported. Sorry if this is slightly confusing, the main thing is the solid treatment of browser support.
This book is sensational. For me, being a VB programmer but newbie web/JavaScript programmer, there are enough code examples within and the book is written well enough that I can use this immediately in my job. Highly recommended
