I waited more than a year for this book

I had no problem with the format of the book as a tool to review the information; however, the review all applies to an old version of the test. This book has little to no value as a tool to review the current version of the CCIE written examination. It was a major waste of money.

Understanding Javascript

Despite attempting a number of so-called "easy start" books, Tom Negrino and Dori Smith's excellent "JavaScript for the World Wide Web" is the first which has held my interest long enough for me to understand something.
Can I pin down why? It's probably a combination of an easy writing style, the order in which topics have been tackled and the clearly-explained worked examples.
All of which has moved my own Javascripting from the haphazard to the logical in a very short space of time.

Five Stars from someone who really wanted to hate this book

Ok, I will admit it...I am a "button down" kind of guy. I manage my company's wireless network and I have one in my house as well. I have never gone WarDriving and I probably never will. I have read articles about it in newspapers, magazines, etc. and formed an opinion that these people were all voyeurs at best and criminals at worst. When I saw this book, I thought it was important to read it to find out where my wireless network might be vulnerable. Before reading it, I was pre-disposed to then post a review affirming my initial opinion that anyone wardriving is up to no good. Ok, I will admit this as well....I WAS WRONG. The authors provide incredibly detailed information on how to wardrive, but more importantly go to great thanks to explain how to do it legally. They explain what is right and what is wrong. And, for the most part I agree with their explanations. According to their bios, several of the authors have military and/or law efnorcement backgrounds and one of them was in the NSA,so I'm guessing they know what their talking about when it comes to the legal issues involved. There are also chatpers at the end that provide great information on how so secure your wireless network to make sure that no one with good or bad intentions can access it at all. All in all, this book provides a very thorough treatment to the technical, legal, and honestly ethical issues surrounding Wardriving and wireless security. Well Done!
